I've just been let down with a buyer for him. DH nods his head to cull him. I've culled cockerels before but they never A. Lived in the house. B. Sat on my knee everyday making cute sounds. C. Learn't their names and come running. D. Untied my shoe laces for fun. He's just such a - PET!- & I've got so attatched! Even the dogs and the cat view him as a friend & not food anymore. He's a Pekin bantam & everything about him is adorable. Now I'm a really practical person, but the way he's behaved - I let him out with the others & he just ignores them & trys to come back in the flat. And when I say ignore I mean apart from a little flirting with the hens first thing, he then just stands apart from them all and follows me when I go out, flops at my feet and makes those stupid noises to be petted or picked up. He started living indoors at night because we moved and didn't want to upset our neighbors with his crowing. So I (stupidly) decided he could come in and be indoors at night until he was rehomed or culled. Now he's a good lad & sleeps until the afternoon (lazy) under the stairs. Except for when we go to bed, he has full house access. I'm talking his own bed, own dishes in the kitchen etc... I feel such a muppet. The practical side of me says; He's too tiny to eat properly, I can breed him with my Pekin hen, I have limited space, I should cull him, I can't cull him, I want to keep him, it doesn't make sense to keep him, I have nobody to cull him for me, I wouldn't let anyone cull him etc, etc, etc :-( Oh, dear! What to do. My poor, pompous pekin. I call him my Trouble In A Bubble, He knows his name. Crazy.
