    Our local pub, The Royal Oak in Rusper, Surrey held a Chicken Race on Saturday. It's a great pub and has just won CaMRA Sussex Pub Of The Year 2008. All their food is organic / free range and they serve several real ales, always changing. They keep animals too!

    So we entered the race

    Us


    There was a massive chicken and a tiny one too called Dave!


    This is a video you can watch of the start! (Opens new window)

    and a video of the end. (Opens new window)
    Note the absurd level of competitiveness from Andrea leaping over the fence, grabbing a handful of sweetcorn from her mum, shoving her niece out the way and cheating by hand-feeding Margo over the line!

    What disgraceful cheats we are! Still, we got a nice trophy :)


    Actually falling asleep on my shoulder


    Dave


    All the best

    congratulations Margo - but what about the tiny bird on the far side that crossed first?!!! Was that Dave too? He's very cute! Lovely trophy - you must be very proud 'parents'!!

    Ah, bigger cheat than all the feeding. I'm sure the woman next to you was trying to get Margo to go the opposite direction!

    What a day you had there! If it had been raining would you have raced ducks?

    Keeper of the hens

    Hmm it's fantastic, isn't it?! I love how the chickens were just dawdling about, and all the humans were jumping about and yelling at them!

    Thanks for posting the video. I loved it. It was really funny when all the people started to chase after the chickens.;)

    I might enter Gravy; s/he doesn't seem to run, just gets wherever s/he's going very quickly as if on wheels!

    Reminds me of a crinoline (sp) lady - you know, big bustled floor length dresses. Ooo, I know, like the old lady that owned Tweety Pie!
