Monique — A True Chicken of the Sea

Monique — A True Chicken of the Sea

It can get lonely at sea. That's why sailors sometimes have pets—the occasional cat or maybe a parrot. French sailor Guirec Soudée, however, has a hen named Monique. They began their trip around the world in May 2014.

"The hen was an ideal choice. People told me it wouldn't work, that the hen would be too stressed and wouldn't lay eggs," he told the BBC from western Greenland. "But there was no problem; she laid eggs straight away. She adapted to it perfectly—she was very comfortable very quickly."

Monique seems to like life on the water. She warms her feathers after jumping into the freezing water on a sunny day. She quickly learned how to swim, and now she knows how to windsurf and paddleboard, too. Monique lays a few eggs a week, and eats pretty much anything, including whatever Soudée is eating. When they land, Monique likes to explore their surroundings. She's even a snow bird.

Soudée says he knew immediately that the two were meant for each other. "I knew she was the one straight away," Guirec told the BBC. "She was only about four or five months old then and had never left the Canary Islands. I didn't speak any Spanish and she didn't speak any French, but we got along."

Does Monique invite you to revisit your opinions about chickens? Especially about eating them? Great! Cruise over to http://KindMeal.my for some great meat-free meals that Monique would approve of!
