Re: Advice needed re my Ancona cockerel

I know some people have had success with picking up cockerals and tucking them under your arm, face down, and carting them about as you do your chores outside. The idea is that he knows you are boss and he isn't. You could perhaps try this at dusk to start with as he will be more docile. However, I ...

Our friends from the city were most amazed when next doo...

Re: Happy Christmas to all of my forum friends

Happy Christmas everybody and thanks for providing a stimulating and happy Forum. We have discovered one charity shop in all our time here, its to help people without sufficient goods, particularly those with children, so we have been able to donate things there. I give all our charity money to the ...
