Oh Brian! What did you do? ….”Got Told Off, I Did!”

The latest episode from the talking bird from Turkey ~ Brian guest writer from Uncle Spikes Adventures 

just read on…   here is Chapter 12 ~               [   catch up link to previous episodes  ❤  ]

Hey Aunty Gill – yep, I’m still here!
BUT…
I’m “on notice”, as Farmer Spike says, and may help add to the bags of frozen soup if I don’t change my ways – oops! You see, this past month or so I’ve been having some teenage issues, and I’ve done some dumb stuff Aunty Gill .
Brian 19
Every day, Farmer Spike lets us out from under the steps, a.k.a. ‘home’, and throws us a hand full of barley each to peck at. To be honest, Farmer Spike is a nice guy, as even though we roam free each day, and this food is not a necessity, we’ve come to expect such offerings every morning and again at dusk.
When Farmer Spike’s mom is here, or Great Aunt Spike as we call her, she usually feeds us biscuits around 4 o’clock in the afternoon too. This is ace, and we learnt to scoff right out of her hand too  She’s an octogenarian apparently; although I have absolutely no idea what that is, coz she only has two arms n legs, not eight!
Brian 20
Anyway, talking of Great Aunt Spike and her arms n legs; well, that’s part of my problem. In my excitement to scoff said biccies each day, I started to follow her. Then one day I wanted the biccies before she was ready, and then sort of chased her… Now’ I’m a placid sort of chap really, but biccies are just sooooo yum, that I sort of lose myself. Then one day I went too far, and side-kicked Great Aunt Spike with my spurs (rear facing fighting talons), tearing a small gash in her leg, and receiving a few cuss words and a wave with her stick in doing so. Great Aunt Spike told me off big time, but being a bolshie teenager, I didn’t listen much.
Brian 21
No biccies for a few days.
A week later, and Great Aunt Spike went back home, after another seven week ‘tour of duty’ here on Spike’s Farm. Now, Farmer Spike doesn’t do ‘biccies’ for us, and so we were feeling a little put out, so guess what this little dumb-butt did; I side-swiped Farmer Spike too in my frustration about the biccies dilemma.
Oops, my bad! He is quicker than I thought for an old’un, and I received a steel-toed boot up my feathered jacksy for my sins. Ouch that hurt [grrrrr]; but Farmer Spike wasn’t done, oh no. He chased after me, shouting all sorts of stuff I wasn’t sure of (but sounded naughty I think).
Anyway Aunty Gill, I’m still here, but Farmer Spike says if I do that one more time, then I’ll be helping him make some soup. Now, I’m not quite sure what that entails, but he seemed to imply I wouldn’t like it.
Well, best off… will write towards the year end. Love n stuff Aunty Gill, from yer Rooster Nephew, Brian xx

Dear Brian
Behave yourself!
Take my advice…
Love Aunty Gill xxx

Episode 9
Hellooo Aunty Gill – yep, another month and I’m still here!!
Mrs Fox has been back…, but only very late at nights, and by then we are all tucked up under the kitchen stairs with the metal gate across to keep us all safe, so ha ha Mrs Fox 

I’ve been really practicing my singing lots and lots Aunty Gill, especially at two in the morning. I really think my voice sounds best just around that time, but Farmer Spike seems to disagree. But what does he know, eh? This is a photograph that Farmer Spike took of me this week. I was singing my special afternoon song, celebrating a cuddle with Missy a few minutes beforehand. I like cuddling a lot, so I like singing too I guess…

I tend to do my singing as high up as I can find. I don’t mean from a tree; that would be silly and dangerous – and a bit scary too. But I do like to sing my songs from on top of the coffee table most days. Farmer Spike tells me off though. I think he likes my singing really… but I think he gets annoyed coz I tend to get all excited and drop a little something at the end of my song.Brian 11

Sometimes I stand on top of Junior Spike’s toys to do a spot of yodelling too. That’s fun! But the other day I didn’t half panic. Up I jumped. Flapped my wings to get ready (as us roosters do), and started to sing. One second later the thing went and moved down the slope!!! I almost fell off. I didn’t, but I did do a little something on there as well, oops!

Chat next month I hope… See ya; from Rooster Nephew, Brian xx

Uncle Spikes AdventuresTHE ORIGINAL DIARIES   Series ONE

 Hi people! …. Meet Uncle Spike who writes a lively and informative blog about life on the Turkish farm where he lives with his family. (Press the camel for Uncle Spike’s lovely  blog or try the link at the end of the article to get an entertaining and delicious taste of Turkey!). Uncle Spike is the first person I started to follow (and  talk to) when I started blogging in October 2013. His talking birds are a regular feature here starting with Duke a rather gorgeous ‘Turkey bird’ ……..Uncle Spike holds the pen…….

Episode 1: Duke

‘Hello! I’m a Turkey from Chicken.No, no, no…. got that wrong, sorry about that. What I meant to say is that I’m a chicken, FROM Turkey, not a Turkey from…. well, you get the gist. But what you may not know is that Aunty Gill, a.k.a. your blogger friend, really is my aunty, coz she named me when I was younger. Yes, I’m the one and only “Duke-Cocka-Locky”, but often known simply as The Duke.

SPIKE 01

I’m a young(ish) rooster, hence the good looks, and I hold the rank of Number Two on our farm. I did try for promotion earlier this year, but after losing a bunch of feathers in a two hour tussle with Pablo (Number One), I have decided to bide my time before sneaking up on Pablo next year, and kickin’ his butt big time. Well, that’s the plan, but I need to grow a pair first, and workout more first, coz he’s a big bruiser, albeit an old bloke!
SPIKE 02

So yes, I’m definitely a chicken, and not a Turkey. But I do live in Turkey, although we call it Türkiye, and we have Hindi’s here, which you call Turkey’s – it’s all very confusing to be honest. I tried asking Bonzo, our farm dog, and chief protector, all about this, but he seems to be all brawn and no brain, a bit of a ‘himbo’ I reckon – he doesn’t know diddlysquat. I haven’t told him that to his face, but the guy is chained up, so I think I’m safe enough, haha…
SPIKE 03

I’m happy being a chicken though, not a Turkey, or even a Hindi. You see, as a ‘working rooster’, I get paid to spend ‘time with the ladies’; I’m not a chicken called ‘Soup’ you see – that’s the name Farmer Spike gives to the big roosters he keeps in the big pen; they are ALL called Soup, but not me, I’m The Duke! That’s me, on the right by the way: note how many ladies I have near me compared to Pablo – my time will come!!

SPIKE 04

Dunno if it’s true, but I heard through the bird vine that my  Aunty Gill and her friends scoff Turkey for lunch…! Yuk, imagine that? Not sure if it’s true, but I wouldn’t wanna be a Turkey, just in case, ya know, I was her favourite nephew for more than just my good looks and cool name. Hmm…
SPIKE 05

Thankfully we don’t have Thanksgiving or Christmas here, so I reckon I’m safe on that score, no matter if I’m a chicken OR a turkey.’
