Within the pen at the allotment, where I found Tanundra Turkey, were chickens and geese. So today I wish to introduce them properly to you. I must warn you that there is a little rivalry between the cockerels which adds an edge to their day to day living…..
Calvin Cockerel was king of all he surveyed with his hens dancing in attendance at all times!
Hilda Hen could be annoying though, bowing and scraping behind him all the time!
Calvin is a Latin name meaning ‘Little Bald One’!
Here is his greatest rival!….
Chuck knew he had one up on Calvin….”Hah!” he said unpleasantly to no-one in particular , “That Calvin the Little Bald One will soon give up his reign when his harem see the whiskers I have been growing!”
Chuck is a Teutonic name meaning ‘Manly, full grown’!
Calandra quite lost her head when she saw Chuck and his whiskers!
Calandra is a Greek name meaning ‘Carefree, the lark bird’! I’m wondering if we might have a little bit of a floozy on our hands here!
Now the promised Geese….
Gertie and Graham Greylag knew that if they practised enough, they could make that romantic heart shape with their head and necks like the swans down at the river did!
Gilliam Goose loved it when the water was calm and serene and his reflection was as perfect as he was!
And That’s All!
See ya xx
