I was contacted last night to see if I still had some Legbar cockerels for sale. I said yes and arranged for him to be picked up today. I think there was a little misunderstanding as to what ‘dinner’ was, but, when we arrived home from lunch, our potential customers were ready and waiting for us.

Dewey was chosen over Chico out of the Legbar boys.

However, my teenage customer is just starting out in the poultry business- a budding ‘Bernard Matthews’ in his dad’s words – so his eyes lit up when he discovered I had the Buff Orpingtons up for sale as well. He took the three for a cut-down price and I was only too happy to encourage a young chicken keeper.


Just wondering what Mum says when he returns home with three birds ….
