Theo now looks forward to his sister’s riding lessons. Why? He gets to spend time with his chicken friend at the stables. There are lots of chickens running around but this particular one is Theo’s friend. She actually stays still and lets Theo stroke her back. Every week. Or lets him carry her. And every time I pop into the stables to check on Theo, ‘his’ chicken is by his side.
I’m including another photo from this week of the two of them hanging out together on top of a haystack. He might have been born in London but he’s turning into a country boy!
Needless to say Theo wants to keep his chicken friend as a pet but I’ve explained she can’t come home with us. But perhaps some day soon we will get some chickens…
Update: Sadly this chicken – who we nicknamed ‘Tea’ – was eaten by a fox a few months later! Ever since Theo has been trying to find another chicken friend but none have been been like Tea.

Aw bless, he can have one of ours!
He he – I corrected it in case Theo read it!
thank you, it was reading about the chicken that caused my typo! Teach me to comment too late at night!
oh wow this is great. your boy is so sweet and what a cute chook. great shots.
What a great story to go with these images. Reminds me of a barn I used to play in as a kid.
Ah lovely photos – Theo looks so happy with his chicken friend 🙂
That’s awesome. Sweet pet friends!
Such lovely photos. It’s so sweet that he’s bonded with this particular chicken 🙂
We have a hen just like this one, she’s very cheeky and full of character. They make great pets, it’s good your son can play with this one regularly.
I love his face! My eldest has taken a shine to chickens after visiting Coombe Mill-obviiusly something about them 🙂
Thanks Iona. The reason I love this photo is the expression on his face. I have other better photos but this one to me captures his bond with his chicken friend.
He looks so adorable. I think the chicken can feel his love that’s why! #mysundayphoto
It looks like he’s having lots of fun
Thank you for linking up
These are such lovey photos, I love to see children being so gentle and clearly loving the moment with an animal x
I can thoroughly recommend chickens as pets……your son obviously has a way with them.
