Ahead of the flock

We have heard of chicken in a basket, but never in a bucket!

Mark Pickett and his family live near Burton-on-Trent and have around 20 chickens of all types in their garden. Feed is normally served out in a red bucket. Not so strange, you would think, until one morning a particularly hungry, or clever, young bird decided to wait in the bucket to be first in the queue. This proved to be her regular waiting place hoping for first pickings.
