    Makeshift shrine to dead baby actually turned out to be chicken

    They love to grieve in Liverpool, say the cynics. The city does, after all, have a reputation for lining its pavements with bouquets at the first sign of calamity.
    So when a passer-by found what looked like a human foetus in an alleyway they assumed the worst.

    Within hours one kindly soul had laid a bunch of flowers at the scene, expressing her sorrow. Another did likewise, imploring the mother she suspected of aborting her child to come forward.

    After five days the alley behind Oakfield Road, Anfield, had become a sprawling shrine filled with flowers, teddy bears and cards.


    One card read: "RIP little baby. Safe in the arms of Jesus. From someone who is a loving mother xxxx."


    Another well-wisher wrote: "To the mum of this little baby. I pray the Lord will keep you safe and well and you will come forward.''

    Yesterday Merseyside police took the unusual step of announcing that their investigation was over and that the foetus in question had been that of. . . a chicken.

    It took them 5 days to announce that it was a chicken?

    Why was a chicken laying in an alleyway in the first place?

    Are you asking why the chicken crossed the road?

    Hey, that belongs on the question thread - and no, it would be "Why did the chicken cross the alley?"

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"
