Hector's lame; Harvey has obviously seen his opportunity to usurp him and there has been the most awful fight. I came back on Wednesday from the stables to find both of them covered in blood - mostly Hector's, I think.

He's now in isolation, with a hen companion, and I've bathed his wounds in Dettol. His right eye keeps closing and has to be bathed so he can open it, poor boy. Fortunately, he's a canny big soul and, apart from pecking at Felix when he got too close, he's been very easy to handle.

He's eating fine, but is completely silent, while Harvey is proclaiming to the world that he's now King of the Dunghill. I'm going to have another go at rehoming Harvey, so that Hector can be rehabilitated.
