Save the chickens.

Free-roaming chickens in Sin Ming look set to continue living off the land there after they were, more or less, bestowed a new lease of life.

Ho Ching personally paid the red junglefowl families a visit and shared a video of them, not before saying she was “very happy to have found them” after she was tipped off about their existence:

Her husband, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, had also shared a photo of a lovey-doveychickeny pair of chickens roosting in the neighbour’s house on Feb. 14:

Free-roaming chickens in Singapore have been in the spotlight after they were flagged by Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

It was recently revealed that more than 20 chickens around Thomson View and Blocks 452 to 454 Sin Ming Avenue area have been put down after receiving 20 complaints from residents last year.

Yap Him Hoo, director-general of the AVA, explained that culling free-roaming chickens is a preventive measure against bird flu.
