near Honeybourne has a museum containing all things chicken and egg related. We read about the history of Cockerel Fighting and looked at the Factory production of chicken and eggs. We also enjoyed looking at old chicken themed toys. When we left the museum to enter the park we were mobbed by trained racing chickens sprinting towards us as they must have known we had bought feed to share out on our way around.
My son made friends with this one...
We had a tour around the world in chickens and saw 131 different breeds of chicken, from British and European breeds to American and Asian breeds, you will forgive me for not remembering all of them. Many of the exhibits had tried and tested escape routes from their enclosures and were at large around the park. I am a complete 'Townie' and the size of a full grown chicken surprised me, some are huge. The cockerels and Turkeys were a bit scary. I am sure by the way this turkey puffed himself out he was as scared of me as I was of him.
Euan got very sad when it was time to say goodbye to Freddy so I had to promise we would go and see him again soon.
