Sitting in front of a log fire with my writst in plaster after falling on the ice last winter, I let my hens into the sitting room for a treat. My hen Fanny (I also have Delia, Clarissa & Nigella) was indoors and walking along the back of my sofa. As I turned to speak to her she pecked me in my eyeball. I ended up in A & E again and had a bloodshot eye for a fortnight as well a broken wrist. Bless her. Roll on spring.
