This one shows the Dad (he's moulting at the moment)

Best Regards,

awww the little fellas are so cute!
we were a little suprised today when we arrived at the plot after a few days away from it to find we had a chicken!  he (as we later found out) was strutting about as if he owned the place and seemed miffed by our arrival.  i went into overdrive planning on building a little house for it, wondering if he could live in the shed, furiously trying to come up with a name for it, ian was sightly less excited and far more practically pointed out it had probably come from next door - where there are two hen houses.  then our other neighbour, Keith, arrived and told us he belonged to Jock (the elusive guy next door who i have never seen in two years of being there) it's his young rooster apparently.  i then spent half an hour running around the entire site trying to catch him to put him back in his own garden, much to everyone elses amusement.  i eventually realised he would go home when he was hungry and left him to strut his stuff around all the other chicken shacks.
