Friday… time!

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

I am continuing to use a photograph as a source of is mine for this week!



How she had ended up in this situation, God only knew.

She could see the look of anguish on the face down below..

She could hear the panic!

“Don’t do it!”

She called…”Please don’t do it!

Who will look after me, walk with me and feed with me?

“Don’t jump – Please Don’t jump!

Oh God!



Eva, on the worktop is so keen to be with us! Just by chance I turned to see she had not only entered the kitchen but had jumped up on the worktop!

  1. Another winning story to make your readers smile.

    That picture of Eva is so sweet! What a lovely looking chicken she is - very fluffy :-)

  2. They're lovely. I've always liked hens. They're real characters. I might exercise my current rush of painting skills on a hen portrait before much longer!

  3. haha. nice play...if she did would she hatch scrambled eggs? great 55....

  4. We keep having vague idea of joining the urban chicken movement( yes it exists!)

  7. I must say that the flash fiction goes well with the photograph of the hen!!!

  8. Chicken playing chicken. I like it :-)

  9. Now I am wondering how she got down in the end...

  10. And here my first thought was "spread your wings and fly my pretty."

    My 55 is here.

  11. I love Barnyard 55's
    It's so very....Bucolic!
    Excellent 55 My Dear.
    Poultry Prose gets me going.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  12. Maybe she went up there to lay the eggs closer the the griddle? LOL Excellent my friend. Very well done. Have a wonderful Friday :)

  13. I love this and I love seeing chucks wandering around.

  14. Awww, what a lovely tale, with a surprise twist in the photo below it! So funny. She looks right at home up there on your counter (smile).

  15. That is a great 'beast fable' :D

  16. Very well done. I have enough trouble stringing together sentences without the word-count restriction, so I don't think I'll partake in this game. Looks like great fun.

  17. LOL. Loved the 55 words and the pic to match.


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
