Pagan Eye: Chicken Run

When I visited Middle Farm a little while ago - and took the photo of lambs in a barn - I was hoping to see cute little day-old chicks, the kind that look like yellow bundles of fluff, that I could photograph for an Easter Pagan Eye.

Unfortunately, not only did I fail to find any cute little chicks, I was chased out of the barn by this large and angry-looking black adult bird. I must confess my ignorance in not knowing if it is a cock or a hen - and if I'd got close enough to check I suspect it would have pecked my eye out.

But it made quite a dramatic photo, so I thought I'd post the picture for my Easter Pagan Eye anyway.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting, including seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. I am happy to include photos I am sent.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog

Absolutely brilliant photo! Just aching for some photoshop fun - or a caption...

Thanks! And if anyone can think of a caption, then that would be great!

I think this is a Hen bird..she looks pretty fed up. I have a Stroppy Hen who will peck your hand of if you get too close.

Thanks for clarifying the bird was a hen - a bad tempered hen too!
