Funky Chicken at the Crooked House Pub

When I was younger, we used to visit this wonderfully quaint pub with my uncles and aunts in Wolverhampton.
The The Crooked House.
Due to whatever happens to the ground and foundations, its beamed exterior and interior have all gone higgledy piggledy! Its great! Inside there is one beam that slopes quite obviously to the eye, yet if you put a steel ball bearing at the lower end, it appears to roll upwards! So fascinating for us kids, and adults alike!
A couple of summers back my parents thought it would be a great idea to take Hubby Dearest, the kids and me back there. The kids loved it!

The Crooked House now

They have added a children’s play area too, so the kids were in their element! There was even a small animals hutch with rabbits, ducks, geese and one of these…

    So what you’re saying is, the real crazy chicken was the one behind the camera then? 😉

    I believe that chicken might be a silkie (or silky) chicken. We had a white one on our farm in Texas when I was growing up. They look crazy.
