Cecil Finds A New Home

The jungle tom toms within the North Flintshire chicken fraternity must have been banging like good uns for this afternoon an elderly woman who heard through egg seller Eirlys who in turn reads the blog that I needed a good home for Gay Cecil , called me to see if she could have him.
" I have a tiny hen who needs company " she said on the phone " but he has to be small"
Within minutes she had called round and was giving him the once over through huge milk bottle bottom glasses.
Cecil blinked once and screamed at the top of his lungs at the sight of her
" He's very highly strung" I explained  deciding to have a little fun with the whole situation
"Why is that ?" The woman asked " is it the breed?"
" No ... he's gay" I told her
" IS HE.?" The woman sounded surprised " how do you know that?"
I was going to tell her that Cecil loved Barbara Streisand and Celine Dion, re arranging furniture and was particularly fond of looking "FAB-UL-OUS darling" but I stopped myself as I was just being silly
" he's just not interested in sex" I eventually told her
" Well that makes two of us" the woman said brightly
" I'll take him"

  6. awwwwwwwwww.
    I thought Cecil is very pretty chicken but very surprised at his size.
    He is so tiny. hahahahaha opps !
    I really don't know much about chicken beyond what I read here, mrsnesbitt's and of course Weavers blogs.
    Something interesting from Tucson, there was a newspaper story about how many homeowners were removing their pools and putting in chicken coops instead. Not me, I am never giving up my pool !

    cheers, parsnip

  9. Watch him fall madly in love with the little lonely hen..!

  10. I suppose he could fall in love with the little hen, but then, he might fall in love with the little old lady.

  11. Well, if you had to climb the equivalent of a six foot ladder to have sex, you might not be interested either ...

    I hope Cecil and the lady's little hen hit it off completely :)

  13. A lovely story for Valentine's Day John. The moral is - There is a soulmate for everyone out there, be you a gay rooster or asexual woman. A match made in heaven. I hope the woman's lonely hen likes Gay Cecil or there may be a lot more of Cecil screaming, but at least it will be done at someone else's coop.

  19. He should be happy, as long as the hen doesn't pester him for attention.

  27. So, does this mean Phyllis Diller is all alone? I do hope there's at least another hen who'll keep her company.

  29. Oh John - what I love about you is how you manage to make every little episode and incident such fun. Bon voyage Cecil - and you never know what life has in store for you in the future (Cecil i mean, not you!)

  30. Let's hope the poor dear (Cecil) calms down before he gives himself a heart attack.

  31. She sounds a delight....she and Cecil will be happy together...wonder if she runs around shrieking also? I'm imagining that in my minds eye!

  32. "He's just not interested in sex" And many thousands more, I suspect. People aren't nearly as interested as the sex-mad media like to make out.

    And I'd better not rearrange the furniture. Someone might get the wrong idea....

    1. Well there's no shame of being thought of as gay!
      It's a badge of honor now

    2. Oh, goodness, I wasn't suggesting it was shameful, not in the slightest. In fact I was supporting the Gay Liberation Front some 40 years ago!

  33. I think I enjoyed the content of the story as much as the way of telling it. Sweet lady. Sweet rooster.
