Day 149 – Ministry of Silly Walks

Monty got her name by being the chicken that quite literally does a walk almost exactly identical to that featured in the Monty Python “Ministry of Silly Walks” skit. I have tried in vain to capture a picture of her in full silly stride, but to date have failed to do so. I am not sure if you can tell or not, but her left leg is noticeably smaller than her right one. This was a birth defect, and we have been assured by the previous owner that she was born this way, and her silly walk is through no fault of ours. She has a massive what looks like a wound on her back just above that leg, though she is sprouting new feathers in the area, and seems to be just fine. She is I do believe the smallest of our chickens, and when given the opportunity to free range, she rarely leaves the chicken yard. You guessed it right if you jumped to the conclusion that she has already stolen my heart with her little bitty self, and oh so silly walk. I must admit, however, that we are trying to keep her silly walk from the Ministry, as I am almost one hundred percent positive she has not legally registered it.
