Life As An Undercock


In school there was always a few poor souls that were always on the receiving end of systematic and merciless bullying. They were usually the weaker pupils, the lonely, and the different.
The animal world is no different. You just need to add to the mix a need to remove any potential genetic rival , a need which is exceptionally strong with the male members of a community.

Meet Harry.
Harry is a teenage cockerel who is not only a sad " ginger" but has proved himself to be an out and out " big girl's blouse " of a cockerel.
If he was human
He would mincing, screaming, silly young Queen.
On a regular basis , one of the ordinary hens will take a sharp beak to him, and amid a flurry of red feathers, Harry will scream hysterically like a girl and run shrieking in dramatic circles with his wings  held high above his head.
Think Jack out of Will & Grace 

Now a camp, cockerel is bleeding useless when the protection of a flock is concerned and
all the hens seem to sense this. They have no use for Julian Clarey in a chicken suit
All they want is beefcake
.....it's a case of choosing Russell Crowe over Russell Brand

Poor Harry.......he's neither fish nor fowl

  2. I think you ought to bring him indoors, poor soul, where he'd be appreciated more.

    2. No, Iris. I was thinking of J.G.s bed (for example).

  4. Sounds like my Dixie. He's a boy dog with a girl name and it's so appropriate! In my defense, I let my nieces name him.

  5. I think nature is beautiful but also very cruel. For eample: Domino our cat played with a live mouse last week. He let it scurry away and then caught it again. I much prefer dogs to cats. Far more loyal and faithful.

  6. Poor Harry. Just put him in a pair of Doc Martin boots, cockerel knuckle dusters, leather jacket and helmet and I'm sure they won't mess with him again.

  7. Poor Harry. This is why bullying awareness is important.

  8. Russell Brand is way more interesting than Russell Crowe, in my books anyway. Yes, poor Harry. He's going to have to be tougher for sure.

  9. But isn't he beautiful!

  10. I love Jack in 'Will and Grace'. Few men can flounce as well as he does. As to Julian Clary: My my - ain't he just the thinking woman's crumpet. Come to think of it: What's it with me and gay men? Tennessee Williams taking pride of place, not only on my book shelf - on the wall too. Will send photo of him at his most lascivious.

    I don't know the private Russell Crowe but dare say that I'd prefer Russell Brand any day. I love the devil, particularly a brilliantly articulate one with long curly hair.

    As to Harry. Can't be easy for the poor sausage. Hens thinking you are one thing only to find you are not. Rum-Punch Drunk's advice excellent. As they say 'clothes marketh the man'. Which is why sometimes wonder what makes the likes of Johnny Depp (as Captain Sparrow complete with eyeliner) and aforementioned Laurence Llewellyn Bowen in his Renaissance flouncy shirts so terribly attractive.

    Swooning yours, best wishes to Harry,
    U

  12. He's a pretty boy though....what a shame he has no friends. Will he live long do you think?

  13. Your visual is the best. I can see his flurried state all the way here in Illinois. You should write about sissy cocks full time John.

  14. I hope he thrives. That would make him a survivor. The world needs more of these, men or cocks.

  16. I had a little trouble picturing his wing-flapping antics, until you mentioned Jack of Will & Grace. Then the image snapped into sharp focus! Of course, Harry is much better looking.

  17. Is that Bingley exiting stage left? Recruiting a friend who is bigger than the bully is a good plan.

  18. I agree with KK, and I was glad to see your reply to him. Bullying brings out the protector in me, no matter what kind of animal, human or otherwise, is being pushed around.

  19. Can't you feed Harry with steroids so that he ends up looking like Rocky Rhodes in "Chicken Run"? Then he'd become a babe magnet for the crackhead whores and all would be well in the Ukranian village.

  23. Why don't you let him live in your house and sleep in your bed? Obviously, he needs protection. I must ask a favor of you. Will you please send me a birthday card to pass on to my (former) mother-in-law? I want to send her 80 cards from all over the world for her 80th birthday. I'm not getting as many volunteers as I thought I would. And spread the word please please please? Details are in my post for today.

    Love,
    Janie
