The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 789: Chicken Story
Author's Notes: Written for caz251’s comment_fic prompt ‘Any, Any, "That time with the chicken, nothing to do with me".’

Summary: Jack has a habit of bringing stray animals to the Hub.

Ianto stared at the box of puppies by Jack’s desk.

“Jack?” he yelled. “What’s this?”


“I can see that! What’ve I told you about bringing strays to the Hub?”

“I couldn’t just leave them! They’ve been abandoned! Anyway, how d’you know it was me?”

“You just admitted it. Besides, it’s always you.”

“Ha! Not so! That time with the chicken? Nothing to do with me; that was Owen."

Ianto frowned. “Why would Owen bring a chicken to work?”

“He won it in a poker game.”

“Who bets chickens?”

“The local farmers’ club. You’re lucky he didn’t win the goat.”
