Dear Ms Chooksrus,
I also have a collection of chooks. This lot came all the way from China. They seem very surprised in this photograph taken of them at home. Perhaps they were taken aback when they learned they were about to travel all the way to Australia. Now that they are here they look rather cross. I have chooks with attitude!
And then there are all these other funny fellows wandering about the place. My mother would say they were 'dust collectors' if she were alive, but she's not so she won't.
Every chook has a heart - beating or no.
