Under siege...

I am feeling a little under siege! Downstairs, in the spare bedroom, are six ducklings - my foster-charges from the Animal and Bird Hospital. Next door, in the garage, are two boxed roosters - their overnight confinement the outcome of complaints (one in writing, one in person) from neighbours. I am trying very hard to find homes for the roosters. Not easy, no one wants a roo! I make a dark and totally inappropriate comparison with the sometime/somewhere custom of disposing of girl babies in favour of boys. In the poultry world the girls have it!!
