Eddie, lovely to hear from you again, was wondering whether the 'girls' had got too much for you and you had flown away 'skywards' ::)  Will you never learn that us girls have the last laugh and one over on yo u males.  :D

Eddies diary

Its that time of year when most of my tail has moulted onto the coop floor and even with my best impressive posing, I just get giggled at sigh  ::)

Honestly it is just one long round of hassles and humiliations at the moment. Why not have a run in the garden? I get told.  Off I go with Millie and after a protracted going over of all areas, I head home and spot the garden fork. Now what!  Safe bet that blasted human has been cleaning us out, the coop will not be as I left it and the run has been dug over. Thats my favourite sleeping spot and carefully crafted dust bathing pits gone for sure  >:(

Then I see the whole lot is damp. Good grief, shes only gone and hosed it all down for good measure. Now I am going to have to sit on my branch perch and sulk while it all dries out!  Expect some dirty looks and an attitude this afternoon then missus  :tongue2:

I have tried to PM you Eddie to find out what you're doing but you don't appear to have an account! :D  Lovely to hear from you.  It's not the clothes y ou wear that maketh the man, it's what's inside that really counts.  Y our 'human' is only trying to make things better for you and in this rather strange 'hot' weather, surely a 'damp patch, with your feathery coat is a relief.  Love to you and  y our girls, Wighty.

Eddies letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

Please excuse my scrawly writing, but holding a pen in chicken claws is not easy.  Just to let you know that I have been a very, very good boy this year and deserve lots of presents.  My list is not that long and all year I have done my jobs diligently:

Guard the house and garden.
Patrol the area checking all is in order.
Make sure that human behaves herself (well as much as I can)
Eat the weeds and grass - ignore any complaints from this address claiming they are her flowers  :tongue2:
Look after Millie and try and keep the two young hooligan girls in order.

Soooo I would like please some mealworms, some grapes, some more mealworms, extra corn and apples and, and .

Right Millie is demanding strawberries go on the list.  I am not too fussed about them and like the green tops better than the red bit, but she loves them  ::)  OK - happy now?  Better chuck in some tomatoes as well as she goes ape after them. 

anyway, as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, I would also like lettuce, some more mealworms in case the previous lots were not enough and finally an intercom system in case my crows are not enough to get her indoors out here looking after me.  Lets see her ignore that!  :lol:

Please also make sure all the nice forum folk get presents as well and have a lovely Christmas as they are my friends.

Thanks Santa - youre the best.

Eddie xx

We  became good friends as I came armed  with mealworms  so that I could 'sneak' into your humans shed to hide cake and other 'goodies' in there .  I really hope that you get everything you've wished for,  but don't forget Father Christmas will be thinking about  your 'figure' and mealworms are very fattening.  :lol:

Eddies diary also known as you got that on wonky or is it the way you are standing.

It feels like summer, the annual winter flock down for bird flu is past and Im back patrolling the garden  :D

Well I was until the totally uncalled for and rude comments started. Whats with the tail she asks. Are you trying a comb over.  Ill have you know my tail is magnificent and admired far and wide !

Then of course Millie gets involved. You are right she calls over deffo wonky. Conspiring with the human -pah!

Then I inspect the 2 hooligans who are dust bathing and get told my tail is not as straight as last year and they think its funny. How they can tell anything when they are upside down with their heads in the dirt is beyond me !

After this barrage of abuse I use my ninja skills to sneak up and treat the human to my best hard stare. She was lolling on a garden chair drinking coffeee as usual until she finally realised she was being watched and spotted my beady eyes on her. That told her  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
