Henry and Rosie

Henry and Rosie are in Decembers Practical Poultry, along with Henry's Silkie Swimmer.

Also I've just had a phone call from Practical Poultry to say that I have won Novembers competition as well.


Swimmer has a scabby shoulder.

Rosie was fussing swimmer last night when she felt waht she thought was dried poo, turned out it is a very crusty dry scab. I popped some wound powder on and have spent the last few hours trying to get hold of a vet, but no luck.


George has had to be locked in the garage at night now, as it is the only way to stop him crowing at 4am.
