When the 24-year-old Frenchman, Gerek Sudy, set off on a round-the-world journey, he decided to take a chicken called Monica with him to carry eggs to him during the circumnavigation.
But soon the guy realized that the chicken was his best companion from all that he had. The hen not only gives him six eggs a week, she also swims with him, surfs and even catches fish that jumped out of the water and fell onto the deck of the yacht.
Monica is very fond of swimming with her French friend.
Also, she helps Guerek in moments of loneliness.
“At first, when the waves rose, I was very worried that Monica could fall overboard.”
“I often thought that everything, Monica will now be overboard. Fortunately, this has not happened yet. “
“She very quickly adapted to the sea, she is very bright.”
Gerek has already started writing a series of children’s books about his adventures with Monica.
Friends began their journey off the coast of the Canary Islands in 2014.
They went to the side of the Caribbean Islands, where Gerek worked part-time at a windsurfing club to earn money for the rest of the journey.
The incredible duo is now on the west coast of Greenland and plans to stay here until the middle of July.
Fearless chicken, which even such colds will not stop.
She found her calling!
Monica also learned a couple of things that help to maintain the yacht.
“She always does not cause any problems with me. All I need to do is scream “Monica,” and she runs up to me, sits on me, is my company. “
