Davina and Deidre, a couple of free-roaming hens, are becoming famous in Milton Keynes for their stylish high-visibility jackets provided to them by their owner because of repeated efforts at breakouts from their coop.
The couple doesn't like to remain in their coop, and the lawns, as per the owner. They rather love going every day on five-mile roams.
The hens head out at 7 AM each day wearing their fluorescent-pink and yellow jackets.
The owner of these two beautiful chickens is a man named David Williams and he purchased the pair as a birthday gift for his 8-year-old son. They originally planned to keep those hens restricted to their yard.
From the very beginning, it was obvious that the birdies wanted to roam free. “I started off trying to keep them in. But right from the start, they had other ideas—they wanted to be free to go where they wanted,” the owner David told Cambridgeshire Live. “They started their wandering in the summer when the evenings were still light. But as the nights got darker, we were worried that people wouldn’t spot them if they were near a road or on a driveway,” the owner added.
According to Cambridgeshire Live, one resident commented on the local celebrities by saying this: “I love it when they come to my garden and eat the snails that eat away at my plants. They’re doing me a good turn. They’re part of the community now and they brighten our days.”
“We still feed them proper food and people give them all kinds of tidbits. But they enjoy finding food for themselves too,” the owner added. “It must be doing them good because their eggs are amazing.”
