Morning exercise

I don't know who they belong to, but every morning I see two white hens pecking away in the front yard of our neighbor across the street. When they reach a bit beyond her gate, they turn around and go back down the road where they came from. Not a scenario most people would expect in a metropolis like Manila, but you'd be surprised what other farm animals people can keep in their houses here. We don't have a law regulating things like this after all.

Great colours indeed. Interesting as well to read, that they return on their own. Not sure about animals / pets over here, apart from usual ones.
Please have a good Tuesday you all.

Kroookya! Hahaha, typical Filipino scene, our neighbors has it also and even pigeons which flies all day and later comes home at the end of the day.

comme sport, courir après une poule, c'est assez efficace pour perdre des calories (mais si après on la mange, on récupère tout ;o) )

So cute to see! Maybe not so cute if the rooster crows at first light on your day off though.

When I saw the photo I thought you were going to explain why the chicken crossed the road. It's nice that the chickens know their boundaries.

«Louis» won't tell if one of these mysteriously appears on your dinner table...
