The Talking Bird from Turkey is: ‘Gettin’ the hang of it!…..’
catch up here with everything or simply read on…….
Wotcha Aunty Gill – guess what? I’m still here!!
Mrs Fox hasn’t requested my services, so I’ve had a whole month in my job of Top Rooster. And I’ll tell you what, it’s a pretty Top Job too. Because of Mrs Fox and her constant demands to ‘borrow’ one of us each day, Farmer Spike put most of the younger gals (my sisters) back into the Girlie Pen, which is next door to Soup Row (where my brothers are). They are safe there he said, but I do kinda miss ‘em to err, ‘play with’. I wander past their pen every day and blow kisses
I do however, get to live and play with the remaining senior ladies… that’s Mary and Missy. They got used to me now, and stopped beatin’ up on me. That was weird; ya know, me supposed to be ‘The Boss’ and all that! But now we are sort of ‘equals’, and we all stay together as a gang during the day, and sleep under the kitchen stairs at night.
Ah yes, BIG news to report…. I don’t fall off so much now; nearly got the hang of this bit – and it’s rather fun too. I spend most of the day flappin’ my right wing to the floor, lowering my head, and doing a sort of ‘jig’… then I chase one or both my mature female companions to see if they’ll let me do my balancing bit J I used to keep falling off, which was all a bit embarrassing, but no more, haha!
I wanted a picky of me ‘in action’ – Farmer Spike said “No Brian, inappropriate; especially for your Aunty Gill!”. Oh well.
Great Aunt Spike was here for a couple of months, and she used to feed me every day. I’m not scared of hoomans anyway as Farmer Spike looked after us as baby chicks, so we know he’s a good’un, so we reckoned his mom would be too. She used to feed me biscuits every afternoon at 5 o’clock. I got used to that, so Farmer Spike carried on that too – RESULT.
Best wishes from Rooster Nephew, Brian xx
Thank you so much for letting us know how you and your friends are getting on. It is nice to know you are getting your biscuits from kind Uncle Spike. You should try his carmelised oranges recipe sooooo delicious. By the way~ in the top picture of you~ is that a new comb one of the Girlies threw to you when you walked by? Hey ho! Things are looking good Brian.
See you again next time
and take care
from Aunty Gill xx
