I’m afraid I don’t have a huge amount of time to write a complicated blog post today, but I thought I would share these endearing photos of a broody chicken nesting on a basket of cute puppies.  Mabel the chicken is a pet chicken who lives on a farm in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.  Her owners saved her from the dining table because of her likeable personality.  The hen looks after the puppies as though they were chicks whenever the puppies’ mother is outside.
