Bev continues to raise the chicks - well not really chicks any more. When the dust settled and we saw the bigger picture - the 6 chicks she hatched - 4 were cockerels and 2 were hens. We knew the consequences and set to looking for homes for the cockerels. The first rehoming happened a couple of weeks ago. I was in the farm shop and a lady on route to Sheffield had just rehomed some hens - so she would have a cockerel. Long story but there you go.
last weekend two more cockerels were rehomed in a local allotment and are happily settling in.
From the word go I knew we were keeping the white cockerel - he seemed to form a bond with Bev.
I've named him Barry - ie Barry White...but as Jon pointed out Barry White was Black...all the more reason why the name Barry is a good choice.
Village activities continue to buzz along - watch this space!
