At last I have been able to get some shots of the feral ( wet) hens. They live a life of complete freedom. No chop at the end for them as evidenced by the deceased one I found lying under a bush near the sea. In fact the only chicken that is eaten on the island is imported. Given this highly protected state you would have thought they would be a little more forthcoming in the photography department. Some of the roosters are so beautiful but such reluctant models. Thank goodness for obliging cows!
