wave  Today I took delivery of a rather splendid looking boy who I hope is going to fit in here well and be a wonderful husband to my ladies.  At the moment he is in a cage in the henhouse and his new wives are eying him with great interest.  Tomorrow I shall let this handsome cockerel out into the paddock and hope for the best.  Unfortunately he has been used to sleeping outdoors, roosting in the trees, so he may not feel inclined to stay where he should.  Hopefully the lure of all these ladies might keep him here.  If not, I gave him a chance to escape the pot.  

I shall try to get some photos of him as soon as I can.  He just may fit in with February Gold. whistle

wave  Well he is still in the run and very noisy with it.  Everyone including the ducks have accepted him with no bother at all.   I just wonder if he will go into the henhouse tonight or make for one of the trees.   I do hope he follows the hens.    

 I have taken some photos of him and they are on the CSH Flicker page - he has lots of gold on him after all.

What a lovely looking boy Danuta, our lad starts his racket as soon as it's light, which at the mo isn't too bad - around 7.30ish. We have a speckled Maran, he has beautiful long tail feathers
