We have an update from Harriette and Ginger! The two chicks who were traumatised after being the sole survivors from a fox attack when they were two weeks old. They now live with my parents. What beautiful birds they have grown into! Harriette, or “Screamer” as we called her when she stayed with us is still very nervous, she wouldn’t come out her housing but is very bright and alert. Ginger is the softest, sweetest cockerel I’ve had the pleasure to meet. He let me pick him up out the side of the housing without a struggle or a sound and let me cuddle him and give him kisses. He’s so fluffy and harmless. He looks incredibly grumpy but I promise it’s just his face! He kept an eye on Harriette and made sure she was safe the whole time. I am so proud of them.
