Our two young Welsummer cockerels are missing presumed dead ☹.
We have one cockerel from the first hatch left – he damaged his leg when he was young and has been named Hoppy ☺.
He was destined for the freezer when we killed the Hubbards a few weeks ago, but we mistook him for the one going to Louis’s Little Farm so he got a reprieve.
Now with the apparent demise of the other two, one of which was going to be our breeding cockerel, Hoppy has got a second reprieve – Dan’s renamed him Hoppy-go-lucky ☺
