Wow, what a day it’s been, I just have to tell you all about it! As always, I woke up super dooper early today, us chickens always do because our rooster buddies are all pretty good at telling us when it’s time to stop snoozing. There are no Sunday morning sleep ins around here! Anyway, I had another pretty good reason for being up so early because last night, my human friends put my special travelling crate and all of my toys out in front of my night shelter, which is a sure sign that I get to have adventures as an Ambassador chicken the next day.

Mrs Peaches impressed us from the very first moment we met her, a more personable pig would be hard to find and she quickly found a special place in the hearts of many, including Marieke Hardy. Marieke was required for a photo shoot, along with some pigs, so naturally Edgar’s Mission was the decided location. Continue reading
