Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas everyone!




T’was the night before Christmas and all through the coop

Not a creature was stirring, not even the poop


The stockings were hung on the barn door with care

With hope that Chubby Mealworms would soon be in there


The Chickens were nestled on their perch warm and snug

Dreaming of Mealworms and of big juicy grubs


With Mama Chicken on the left side and Rooster in the gap 

They had just settled down for a long Winters nap


When out in the yard there arose such a clatter

I sprang from my perch to see what was the matter


Away to the Coop Door I flew like a flash

Pushed open the door and threw back the sash


When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a 3lb Chubby Tubby and a hairy reindeer


I really couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing

A reindeer, Chubby Tubby and Santa Clause Fleeing?!?


I looked a bit further, down on the ground

Mealworms and Silkworms were spread all around


I called out to the girls to come see what I saw

They jumped up together and got wedged in the door


Feathers and wings were flapping all around

If only they’d listen and loose a few pounds!


How are we going to get out of this muddle?

If we stay here much longer there will be terrible trouble


So I headed behind them and gave a big push

And out they all toppled in a big fluffy rush


Out Pepper, Out Snowy, Out Olive, out Pippa

Out Coco, Out Anna, Out Lavender, Out Nipper


Finally, they came to a stop with a bump

I’ve not seen such chaos since Hilary versus Trump!


I turned and looked down at the mess we had made

But was delighted to see some fresh eggs had been laid



We passed these to Santa and sent him on his way

Eggs, eggs for breakfast! Best not delay!


Out in the yard it was Mealworm Galore

What a magical Christmas! Who could want more?


Still a few hours till the Cockerill starts crowing

So back to the Coop, our excitement growing


Back on our perch, it’s time for a rest

This Christmas eve has been simply the best


Just as we were as we about to turn out the light

A voice shouted… Merry Christmas to all and to all a good
