We pounced on him as soon as he opened our barn door. Baby White was zipping back and forth dementedly - but then he was over-tired, it being well past his bedtime.

"Dora got a third prize in a class of 14. Gilly came fourth out of 14 Gold pullets. Syd came 4th in the Silver cock class - and young Will Boden won with his bird!"
Again we applauded - as only chickens know how.
"Lisa won her Silver hen class! And Gabriel, Gloria and Grace won the Trio class! The best trio out of 5 lots of Golds!"
It was time to get out the Chick Crumb cake and celebrate like we have never celebrated before - and that, as the saying goes, is as only chickens know how! Gordon xxx
