The Chicken Roundabout

In writing of roundabouts yesterday I forgot to mention the other chicken roundabout I know.  This is situated on the A143 between Ditchinham in Norfolk and Bungay in Suffolk where my friend Don lives.  For many years it was home to a variety of feral chickens.  These consisted of many different varieties, some quite exotic.  There is uncertainty about their origin but one local story is that the original ones were abandoned by a chicken farmer who had been forced to move.  Others had certainly been added by local people who didn’t want them any more.  Someone locally was feeding them.  In recent years they have been removed by groups concerned for their safety.  I believe the roundabout retains its name.

I am a septuagenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs
