The Chicken Coop

Chicken probably first came to Mallorca thanks to the Romans, some 2,000 years ago. Ever since, they’ve been busy breeding and brooding, just like my friend’s hen in today’s photo.

My friend, a local farmer, is getting a bit old now. He has recently become inundated with chicken and seems to have lost some sort of control over his feathered friends. They just proliferate and breed and brood and breed some more.

I did not count the chicken when I was at his farm yesterday but, I guess there were about two dozen hens, two or three roosters and perhaps eight flocks of chicks. They were just everywhere, all over his small farm. And some hens were busy brooding.

The photo was taken near Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 22nd, 2011. The time was 19:47:44.
