It says something about the peace of a district when the biggest news around concerns the provenance of chickens on a roundabout.
For decades beyond count, chickens pecked at the spot on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. They continued pecking when they were isolated on a roundabout where two roads met: the spot was known as ‘chicken roundabout’. As you’d imagine, opinions were divided about whether having chickens on the roundabout was a Good Thing. Tempers got heated.
A few years ago the last chickens were given to an animal rescue centre, but others have since popped up. There are plans for a commemorative statue. For the last word on chickens, and indeed for the first word, and all the words in between, you are invited to view this video.
