We All Like a Happy Ending

Remember the sad tale of Nellie and Nora, well some stories DO have happy endings.
Nora and Nellie...sisters?
First out of the henshouse in the morning to check for worms and grubs, then straight to first pickings off the Layers Pellets tray. There's no keeping him back now. Still wonky of gait but with a confidence that is blooming more and more. ~
After Nellies' switch to being Norman, life has got better by the day. After a slow start with the ladies, he is now in the very priviledged position of being loved by two of the girls with a devotion that is sweet to see, one Hyline and one Speckledy think the world of him and he nows sleeps side by side with the un-named Speckledy, in fact her name could be 'Norman's Number One'.
~

The others all give him a level of respect only someone this handsome deserves.

(The only thing I have to watch is that Lovely Hubby picked Norman up last week and realised what he weighs.....I could almost see a cartoon thought bubble above his head with a picture of Norman popping his head out of a giant chicken pie!!)

  1. What a gorgeous looking chap! Could his "wonky gait" be more of a swagger now? :)

  3. "After Nellies' switch to being Norman, life has got better by the day"...I have a girlfriend like that- well at least she was a girl friend, but I'm sure life for her is also better now- she went from Janet to John, like in the titles of the old childerens school books, which always makes me smile because I don't know whether the ironic play on words was intentional!

  9. Hi - great to meet you - not sure how, but I just came across your blog (as one does) and it seems a good place to stop for a cuppa! Turqoise eh? I remember our last house had a turqoise bathroom suite - in perfect condition too - cast iron bath etc none of your cheap plastic type! The matching tiles were a tad overpowering put hubby replaced them with white ones with thin pastel shades running through - it looked great!

    Nice to meet you! Will be a regular now.
