Last time we heard that Duke’s girlfriend, Miss Fluffy Bum, had left the Farm rather hastily in order to work for a local Fox family. Duke was very upset about her leaving so suddenly but  soon Mary another fine feathered lady became his friend and everything was OK.….or was it?

Yo Aunty Gill, it’s me again, Duke-Cocka-Locky, your rooster nephew from Türkiye.

I kept thinking about Miss Fluffy Bum all the time, wondering if she likes her new job with Mrs Fox. I know she was not gonna write, coz Mrs Fox doesn’t always have email, but even still, as much as young Mary is a fairly cuddly bird (see our photo together – nice, eh?), in my book you still can’t beat a real mass of soft derriere-sited lady feathers {sigh}.

So anyway, spring is here and the weather has started to warm up my tail feathers quite nicely. There are baby goats and baby cows all around here as well; you can hear them all chatting all day long! Sometimes the noise gets just a little too much for me; all that gassing about the price of butter. All we get is “Moo this” and “Moo that” – but I’ve been clever Aunty Gill, I found a solution…

But quiet or no quiet, I still missed Miss Fluffy Bum too much, and so a few days ago, when Mrs Fox came back to visit us, just after midday again, I accepted her kind suggestion to also go and work for her. I only thought about it for a second or two, but Mrs Fox was quite insistent. So yes Aunty Gill, I have moved on. I left the other guys, who by the way, all ran the opposite way to me when Mrs Fox arrived, and said a hasty ‘goodbye’ to Spike Farm, and that was that. But here is the last photo Farmer Spike took of me, and I wanted to send it to you.

I had thought of going off before, as you know, when Miss Fluffy Bum left us to work for Mrs Fox. Pablo, the ‘big cheese’ top rooster, did say he would start to write to you if I ever decided to go – he likes talking. So as from next month Aunty Gill, Pablo The Boss will get in touch, as I probably won’t have access to email. Chooks must really love it at Mrs Fox’s house; they never seem to come back, so I reckon I’ll be alright!!
Love, your very growed-up, off to somewhere new Rooster Nephew, Duke xx

Dear Duke
I hope its not too late to wish you luck in your new job and glad that you are now with Miss Fluffy Bum and happy again.  Always knew you would fly off some where with those fine feathers of yours. Best of luck Duke. Sad as it is that I won’t hear from you again,  I am so looking forward to hearing from Pablo, now that you are finding your way in the wider world.
Love Auntie Gill X

  1. Yes, it was a bit tough to lose Duke, but that’s farming life, and we are well used to it anyway. Pablo is now practicing his writing skills and reckons he’ll be up to scratch by this time next month 🙂

  2. My steel trap mind (right -more like aluminum foil) mind thought something foul afoot when I first read “Mrs. Fox.” And I have not been reading the entire series. I bond with a rooster and he dies in less than 90 seconds. World’s gotten too dang fast for me.
    :/ m & jb who like to watch fox out of our side window

    1. Pablo is going to keep up the contact here and looks very similar so there is a chance to re-bond. Not sure if he Pablo is as innocent as Duke though! He is quite weather worn ( How nice to watch fox from the window! x ) ❤
