My new chucks causing a problem


By donnah


I went to the Rackheath bird sale last week to buy a Female stanly parakeet. Their was not one female stanly in sight . I sat for ages watching the sale when a couple of little bantoms came up. They looked very sad and they had been put into a very small box with wire on the top,Well I had to bid . And I bought them for the grand price of £6.50 I felt so sorry for them.

These little chucks are the breed called English game and my rooster was well pleased to see them. I have kept them separate for about a week now And this evening I thought to myself its time to inturduce them. It was a nightmare Chickens all over the place. Sorting out the pecking order. As they do.

This is the new girls on the block

She might look a lot smaller but she sorted him out (sorry can not show photos as they are a wee bit rude )

Ethel who was the new chuck on the block is really put out .She is not happy. Bless

Must be lovely to have hens. Wish I could keep some. Bylaws in Kamloops say no way. Ridiculous, I say.
