I saw some black Croads at the Fed a few years ago and thought they looked lovely, with such a U shape and proud tail carriage. Unfortunately OH disliked the feathery legs, but it was a few years ago now and perhaps he has forgotten...!

We have some unidentified fungsu growing all over a veg bed I spread with guano a month ago...it reminds me of a brown coloured rosecomb, the bottom knobbly bit :D OH was hoping that it is cauliflower fungus which is edible I understand, but I fear it will turn out to be something far more ordinary and unpleasant.

P.S. Mrs.Biscuit......

I have 9 LF black Croads, two have no leg feathers at all, a great showing fault, but it happens.

Cauliflower fungus is quite common but is normally a parasite of the roots of conifers. So take care!

Ooh. Does it kill off large Leylandii? Where can I get this fungus? :?

As it happens our neighbour apparently deliberately killed off a row of young conifers planted by our predecessors :shock: but apparently he used some sort of weed killer/other dangerous substance rather than anything like cAuliflower fungus!

I feel I should also add the guano spread veg bed was/is lying fallow awaiting some Spring planting :D
