After all these years of people pondering the classic question of what came first, the chicken or the egg, Team Pugh can reveal the answer…………………………………
The story goes something like this:
Becksie and Ian were busy making a Marmite cake (don’t worry more on this in a minute) when at 10.07pm Becksie got a text from her friend Sam. It said the following ‘ Hiya, Hope you and Lizzie are well. Slightly random question but are you missing Paul or Barry chicken as we have found a chicken in our garden today enjoying eating my plants and our neighbours say it’s not theirs’!
So………… Ian downed cake tools (he was doing the very important job of licking the spoon) and headed out to check on Paul and Barry! All well in the Team Pugh chicken run – phew! So we texted Sam back to say after taking an emergency register we could report our girls were fine but…….. if they still had the escaped chicken we could come over and pick her up and keep her safe from fox kind until her real owners are found!
Sam then called us to say that said chicken would like to come and stay at Chez Pugh so at 10.31pm Becksie headed over with the cat box to collect the chicken who we have temporarily named Kevin!
So Kevin arrived at her holiday inn safely and we checked her in with some complimentary pellets and hay (well she might go on ratemycoup.com hehe).
So Becksie and Ian returned to the marmite cake! And then went off to bed and when we went to feed the chickens in the morning found an egg! An actual egg! So………. what came first the chicken or the egg? The Chicken!
We will keep you posted on all things related to Kevin and if you live in Faringdon and have lost a chicken we have her and will bring her to you asap! But…………. don’t fear lovely readers if we can not find her rightful owner we will let her become a member of Team Pugh!
In other news the marmite cake – isn’t as it sounds a recipe for a cake containing marmite but rather a cake in the shape of a jar of marmite to celebrate the 21st birthday of Grandpa Pugh! After all he did come second in a marmite tasting contest hehe! Happy Birthday Grandpa Pugh! Ps the cake is chocolate and the lid is marzipan! Pps there is actually recipes online for marmite cakes so watch out we might just make one!
Ppps – don’t forget to enter the competition we launched yesterday!
