Yesterday had a call from my friend Mandi very upset, there was a lady who had some time in the past got herself a few Pekins, then as you do, she had let them hatch out a few chicks. This went on until she had so many they were out of control, they lived in mud and were caked in it up to their pretty little combs.
She really was not looking after them. I could go on about how irresponsible she was, or about the suffering caused to these small birds but I’m not going to. Mandi and I put our pennies together and bought the lot.
Yesterday Mandi picked our sorry little band up. My oh my what a mess. We spent from 10am this morning until 3.30 pm washing, cutting mudballs off their feet, de-liceing them, trimming toe nails. They are now all cosy in my kitchen with plenty of food and water. I have never seen chickens eat as if they had never eaten before, sad little girls and boys.
Now they are clean and dry and looking pretty fine, they’ll need lots of tender love and care. So if you’re looking for some nice little Pekins we have some lovely little trios and duos and a few odd boys, by that I mean they don’t have a wife.
Trios: , Black Trio, Buff split Chocolate Trio,
Boys: Frizzle, Millefleur, Salmon,Cuckoos
