Things have been busy up here on the mountain.
Mum is making up for lost time, after her trip to the vet, dad is working hard. Murph is doing his Murphing and Ash is much better and more relaxed.
Charlie Rooster and the girls are chickens so they do what they like really. We have had two more fox attacks on the chickens, Charlie and I saw the fox with sixpence in its mouth and they went over the wall, I tell you that bird can make a noise. Anyway dad let me off Charlie was in pursuit already and between us we caught up. Poor Charlie was out of breath but swung his claws into the fox's rear. I caught up and I grabbed hold of its tail. Dad heard it call out. Dad was coming through the wood by this time, and we were all gone. He looked for Sixpence but there were just feathers. Charlie came back and let Dad pick him up and check him over and he was okay, he lost a few feathers but nothing to harm him. Dad was just wondering how he would tell mum this news as she was at work, when I came over the wall. He was so pleased to see me, and checked me over, I was good breathless but good. Then over the wall came sixpence.....yes when I got the fox to call out he opened his mouth and sixpence got free, and made her way home. The fox could not stop for her as I was hot on his tail "literally" Oh you should have seen dad's face when she came back, these peeps are so funny at times.
Anyway sixpence did not lay an egg for a day but she is all right now and back to her old self.
I am now keeper of the flock, and it is a very serious job I have.
Mum say's we are all remarkable and Dad agrees, which means Ice cream for me, treats for Murph and Ash and corn for the Birds.
Got to go and see whats going on outside.
Be back soon
Woofs and licks and thanks to you all.
