Something in the water?

I meant to blog this photo the other day but totally forgot about it, what with the pigs and then the Big Fights.

It’s not just Flint who fancies Willow…

This is Dolly, our Pekin Bantam hen. Below her is Willow, the Buff Orpington hen:

Ok, time to ‘fess up. Who has been putting stuff in the water?!

    That’s odd; usually with a cockerel around this sort of thing doesn’t generally happen.

    When we ended up with a penful of female-only birds (one particularly unpleasant & aggressive set of neighbours forced us to get rid of our cockerel; which was such a shame as no-one else minded him becuase he very seldom crowed) one of them did become hermaphroditic. She displayed full male tendencies: such as she stopped laying; started trying to mate with the oher hens; & even attempted to crow.

    As you can imagine the nasty neighbours were furious…which had much to do with why we ultimately sold up, & moved here. Whre life takes you, eh?!

    I wonder what’s set Dolly off? Particularly odd, considering both she & Flint, are bantams.

    OK, so you need to change the name of your blog from “Bring Me Sunshine” to “Random Animals Doing Weird Stuff”! 😀

    Oh dear, definitely something in the water. Hope my three don’t try anything like that.

  4. Dolly’s definitely laid at least one egg since then so I’m hoping it’s just a one-off! Besides, I’ve now split them all up, with the bantams in one enclosure and the big ‘uns elsewhere. Hopefully, this will calm everyone down and we can all get back to normal… Fingers crossed!

  5. Hahahahahaha! I’ll do anything for a laugh!!!
