For Benny!

Phyllis and Rooster 

Well this post should warm the very cockles of fellow blogger Benny's heart!
I do so hope that he enjoys it!
Anyhow!
Above is a somewhat "interesting" photo which illustrates a previous post about some animals' abilities to "team up" when they are in need of the warmth and companionship perfectly!.
Last week the blind Cockerel Rooster Cogburn lost his coop mate Vinegar Tits.
Mz Tits had recovered well from a bout of dropsy and needed to return to her own troupe of "crackhead whores" all of whom had missed the presence of their alpha female.So that left me with the rather knotty problem of who could fill Vinegar Tits' overly assertive sling-backs in providing company for the old cockerel!.
The answer came in the diminutive and neurotic shape of Phyllis Diller, the frizzle cross bantam, and I must admit from her perspective, their meeting seemed like a match made in heaven.from the get-go, as she fussed about him like Charles Hawtrey in a feather outfit.
Cogburn seems delighted with his new coop mate, his daily crowing quota seems to have increased somewhat anyway, and this morning when I opened up his sleeping quarters, the two of them were tightly cuddled up together in one nesting box, like two peas in a pod!

  1. What a heartwarming story, I love the ones with happy endings.

  2. Two peas in pod? You must grow some kind of odd hybrid peas.

    I do hope Benny comes back to share some more of his thoughtful insights with you.

  3. Like Peters & Lee, Renee & Renato, Richard and Judy.

    Ok maybe not Richard and Judy...

  4. Like Sybil and Basil (she had a dressing gown just like that, or should that be "peignoir"?)

  9. Terrific story. (No matter what Bennie says.)

  10. That's an awwwww moment. Rooster is a VERY handsome fellow.
    Benny certainly has a knack for making himself unpopular doesn't he?

  11. Ah, a delightful story, indeed. Cogburn does give a cluck (or, more than a cluck, really) about somebody keeping him company.

    Maybe that's what Benny needs; someone to keep him company. Poor chap!

  15. Oh John, you just make my day with your stories. Benny is a butthead, with no heart and probably no friends.

  16. Aw! Unlike Benny I shan't use unpleasant expletives as I agree with him that you really are the new Dr Dolittle. You should keep the name Benny in mind if someone delivers an unwanted monitor lizard or iguana to your door, then drive into Rhyl and let him loose on the beach.

  17. Love!!! I'm dying laughing at the comments! Bennie might as well troll on elsewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Benny might be a wee bit jealous me thinks...or maybe he didn't enough love as a child.
    Either way, another "feel good" story that 99.99% of us enjoyed thoroughly.
    Toodles from one annoying farmer to another.

  21. True love!

    Glad to hear V.T. has mended, and that Phyllis has found a friend at last. I wonder if she has been hoping for a chance to get to know R. Cogburn all along.

    As Jean said, i too love happy endings!

  25. I get more and more fond of Phyllis. I like to think of her as a poultry version of Mother Teresa.

  30. I've come to The Benny Situation later than most because when I first saw his name headlined I thought you were having a Youtube moment with Benny from Crossroads.

    Being mentally scarred from watching too much Crossroads in my youth (ok, so I was a nanny and it kept the kids quiet) I can only ever think of Bennies as dolts in woollie hats...which is perhaps a good way to think of this one??
