My Great, Grandad. Surrounded by Chickens.


This is a photograph (most likely taken around 1910) of my Great Grandad (Gilbert Tompsett).

I had the urge to keep chickens from a young age and eventually acquired my first bantams at age 11 and have kept chickens ever since. It wasn't until relatively recently that my father showed me this photograph - only then did I realise why I have always had a desire to keep poultry. It's in the blood!!!!!

There appears to be a few dozen birds around him of varying ages; the white ones are probably White Sussex. I wonder what food is in the bucket?
