We have regular feathered visitors to the greenhouse. There are hundreds of chickens living at the Fruittuin, and most of them stick together, but there are always a few curious and adventurous souls who prefer humans to fowl. Barbara (a boy chick) was our first adopted pet (Jimmy and Jammy came later, and Dirty Face even after that). He was injured and needed special care, so Kiki commuted back and forth from her home in the north of Amsterdam with Barbara in a bag or on her arm. Barbara loved to garden with us, peeping and pecking at insects. He did make a mess in the greenhouse at night, but we still loved him a lot.
