Flash the cockerel and his ladies

    This is Flash, his son Lightening and his ladies. They are Porcelain sablepoots.
    Unfortunately his owner passed away and it was a while before they were rescued. They were kept in hutches in a barn and for sometime no-one knew they were even there.

    By the time they came to live with us they were very sad and in a sorry state. Their toe nails were so long and their little feet were so very sore.


    Four months on and their story has become a happy one. Flash has come out of his shell and is much more confident. He is considerate with his girls and gracious with his son.


    Sometimes love is all you need.

    I am about to put some of their eggs in the incubator. I cannot wait to see what the fuzzies will look like I have a black and white Poland who is in love with Flash and kept flying into his pen. After a few days of putting her back I decided to let her stay so their chicks will be interesting too !
