Einstein’s Eggs (Free Range) – Half Dozen
Free-thinking chickens = Intelligent eggs
You don’t have to be a theoretical physicist to understand that environment informs attitude. Even chickens dream of freedom. After all, what kind of a man would keep the social, outdoor, super productive (Gallus Domesticus) chicken trussed up in a darned battery? They should spend time in a cell to see how it feels. Just ask Einstein.
Our chickens are great outdoors types. They spend their days just being chickens: hanging with the gang on lush green slopes overlooking Simon’s Town Bay, they enjoy their meals el Fresco, and between meals they chicken around discussing poultry and imagining the many ways in which chickens could improve themselves. If only they could get themselves to stop chickening out.
Living above a blue ocean leads our chickens to speculate daily on the possibility of flight. Being a duck for a day or a soaring seagull are frequent topics of delight. The theory of ‘being a Boulders King penguin’ is a regular winner on Theoretical Physics evenings. And, happiness -to a chicken – is a warm barn. At night, instead of freezing their tail feathers, our chickens socialise, theorise and sleep contentedly in the barn. These comforts make Einstein’s chickens the world’s happiest birds.
