Little Chick to Little Pip
We can only ponder... if Little Chick had obeyed her mum, Crazy Simone's suggestion to jump, would she still be with us?
Of course as she got bigger, she learnt to jump and land quite well.
Now though she's a fully grown hen and clearly her papa was a rolling stone too, because papa must have been a bantam, not the enormous cockerel we all thought he was. Little Pip has started to lay eggs and after three weeks they remain perfect, ivory coloured eggs but small along with her funny feet and little stalky legs.
