This is a scanned photo taken by my husband from when we lived in Africa. Its my middle daughter seriously holding one of the three chickens we allowed to roam the garden and who generously provided us with eggs in return. Before anyone asks I want to explain that we got two of the birds from a local farmer who produced chicks for laying, it was custom to clip the tips of their beaks to stop them pecking each other when they were in the barn. as you can see they became very tame.
