Episode 2 (December 20)
Yo Aunty Gill it’s me again, Duke-Cocka-Locky, your nephew from Türkiye. After my last post, it was real exciting to see your bloggerising friends say nice things – that’s pretty cool for a young Number Two rooster like me. So here I am again, writing to my favourite aunty about what is happening over here on the farm; after all, it’s a brand new year, even here, but something has changed, and I don’t like it…
It is winter here now Aunty Gill, and soooo cold I reckon my feathers are gonna stick together! I know what you’ll say, “Don’t be a wimp, rooster-up and grow a pair!” Well I have, lol – it’s part of my job description actually. Hey, you’ll never guess what fun I get up to, even as Number Two. I guess it’s not always true that girlie chooks always like the top boss (blush). See me – I’m under the orange tree, creeping up on the girls…
You once told me about your winters over there, so ok, I take your point, our sudden drop to maybe five degrees Celsius (41F in old egg money) at night is not what you’d call winter, but for us here in the sunny south of Turkey, that’s pretty darned brrrrr… Even the trees agree. I know, as my favourite apricot tree has panicked too, and is losing its leaves. Does that mean my feathers will fall out if it gets much colder??? Oh Aunty Gill, I don’t like this cold..!Aunty Gill. You can’t tell, but I’m typing this three days later than the last stuff I wrote above. That’s the trouble with kompewters, you can’t see the pen has changed. Anyway, I gotta tell you some really really good news Aunty Gill – there’s a girlie here called Miss Fluffy Bum♥. She’s my sister, err, sort of I guess, but we won’t go there. Anyway, she doesn’t like the cold, and I mean she seriously does NOT like it. BUT, and here’s the good bit, she seems to welcome my help for a little ‘warming up’ a bit more often than usual, or so I have just found out .
RESULT….!! It’s official Aunty Gill. I’ve changed my mind, I flippin’ LOVE♥ the cold weather now !!!

Ladies prefer a chicken with a bit of Cranberry sauce! Fluffy Bum would be well impressed.Looking forward to hearing from you in February.
Love from Aunty Gill XXX …..I would never call you a wimp
