Girls Grooming

Next time youre in the salon
having your nails or hair done
think of these country chicks
after a few days of heavy rain
they pounced upon this platform
to keep their feet dry as they
fastidiously preen their plumage

No local salons attend to their beauty
so they improvise their natural features
with only a couple of strutting roosters
there is far too much competition
who will fertilise their eggs to hatch
some new chicks or have them snatched
for someone
s breakfast natural selection!
