Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has revealed that he enjoys looking after chickens in his spare time, sharing his upset at the damage a local fox has done to his animals in recent years.

Greenwood, speaking in the new issue of Uncut, revealed that his chickens are 'pretty good layers' but worries about the 'crime scene' foxes can leave if they get into the coup and cause damage. “The chickens are OK. Pretty good layers. Eggs taste great," Greenwood said.

Greenwood added: “We get foxes every few years and it all goes a bit ‘crime scene’ when that happens – lots of burials. The foxes tend to take one or two and kill the rest.”

Radiohead recently brought their The King Of Limbs tour to the UK, performing arena shows in both Manchester and London. The band performed a number of new songs, but also treated fans to classic hits 'Paranoid Android' and 'Idioteque'.
