Hen Coupe!

WHEN LOCHANS hen breeder Brian Sadler lost one of his top performing birds last weekend he got himself in a right flap.

But when he discovered it two days later under the bonnet of his wagon he knew exactly what had gone wrong. The bird-brained hen had confused its coop with a coupe!

Retired Brian, of Craigenquarroch Keeper's Cottage, Lochans, was "mystified" by the discovery last Monday. He said:

"I had driven to my friend's house on the Saturday and, later on as I prepared to come back home, I noticed the hen was by the side of the van - I didn't know how she got there.

"I decided to leave her overnight and when I went back the next day she ran under the van and vanished.

"It wasn't until the Monday that I discovered that she had been hiding under the bonnet - and had lain two eggs!"

Brian, who keeps 35 hens and four geese at his home has taken to calling his bold bird "The Wanderer".

Well it certainly ruffled a few feathers on its latest expedition.
