Mud On the Road

we're about to go shopping in Salisbury...

Violet Chicken

Posted by Deborah Courtnell
We bought our bantams from Miles Boarder of Pure Poultry in Chard, Somerset, aka the chicken man. Two years on we still call him when there’s a problem we can’t solve ourselves.

   We explained that Nigella is being hen pecked. He advised us to buy (violet) Septi-clense and spray it on the injured area on the back of her neck. This will keep the area disinfected and also deter the chickens from pecking at the reddened skin because they cannot read the ‘violet’ colour.

   So Nigella is now fashioning a violet ruff and very regal she looks too.
