THE STORY SO FAR: Always second to Pablo the King, Duke the Rooster is learning to live with the fact that he is not the boss at Uncle Spike’s farm. Its not all bad though……. read on:
Today we have a picture of Miss Fluffy Bum at last!
Episode 5 “All change here Aunty Gill”
Yo Aunty Gill, it’s me again, Duke-Cocka-Locky, your rooster nephew from Türkiye.
Spring has sprunged here Aunty Gill, and that cold weather has moved away – yay!! Sure, it was fun to try and keep warm chasing after Miss Fluffy Bum, but I really don’t like the soggy stuff; it didn’t do much for my delicate but manly feathers either! See what I mean??
I wanted to tell you about things here with Miss Fluffy Bum. Well, try as I might to get a nice foto for ya, she wasn’t that pleased to get a selfie with me, but Farmer Spike managed to get this next shot…. But she didn’t half whinge about it later in the chook house – I mean, just look at her face, not a happy lady!
Shortly after that, things all changed around here. Farmer and Misses Spike went away, and a neighbour farmer lady looked after us. It’s also that time of year when new jobs come on offer, and Miss Fluffy Bum decided it was time to move on. I’m not sad though Aunty Gill, as I understand that to volunteer to go live with Mrs Fox to help feed her babies is an honourable job for any chook, and especially so for a girl with a fluffy derriere. But I’m ok, really Aunty Gill… coz look at my new gal, she’s called Mary.
Ok, so I may not be boss-man yet around here, but Pablo seems a little happier to let me ‘do my thing’, which is fine by me. He likes to be all macho and stand on guard, whilst I ‘look after’ the ladies; in my book that’s called fair job distribution, and so you’ll hear no complaints from me!! Here I am with the gang a few days ago up by the farmhouse.
I do wonder if Miss Fluffy Bum likes her new job, I hope so. She was never gonna be one for writing, not like me, but we are all proud of her having moved on to bigger and better things. Mrs Fox likes to pop by every now and then, even during office hours, but whilst she does the occasional interview, I guess none of us match up to the high standard she needs to help out at her house.
Oh, there’s Mary walking past… Sorry Aunty Gill, duty calls…
Love, your Rooster Nephew, Duke xx
Lovely to hear from you again. What a shock to hear that Miss Fluffy Bum has moved on, and so suddenly. Didn’t expect that! Don’t worry if she doesn’t write to you. We can only hope she likes her new bosses as much as they took to her ! Anyway Mary looks like nice company for you; and as for Spring, it must be pretty wonderful where you are. So Good times ahead for sure Duke…..
Love Auntie Gill xx
PS. See you same time next month
