Well, the bold boy (ha!) has mastered the ladders and can now get himself to bed. We let them out yesterday and the girls, particularly Miss Yellow and Mrs Red, were giving him a bit of a hard time but they did let him have some corn and they did let him go to bed. He'll soon learn that the call "chook, chook, chook" means something to eat.

In fact, he likes his bed. I had to "encourage" him down this morning and he was first upstairs tonight (by a long way). It's been a pretty miserable day here, weatherwise, so maybe he's smarter than the others, who were huddled under the hedge.

I don't know how used he is to being outside - will find out next week. Wind and rain might be a whole new experience for him. Roll on spring!!

Thanks. Hopefully we'll have our own chicks this year,if Hobbes, the hens and the incubator all work. No doubt they will generate many pictures!
