I had to cull the new hen Mrs Muir today. She was off her legs and could no longer walk, so it was a kindness. After I had " done the deed" I sat on the grass reading the news on my Ipad when Max the new cockerel trotted up.
There was method in his madness for the bad tempered field cockerel Moriarty was around, but he surprised me by literally sitting in my lap and letting me rub his head gently.
After a few minutes , I recorded his tame and needy behaviour and if you look closely you can see him closing his eyes in happy bliss
Funny how some animals cross the line isn't it?
Anyhow as for other love ins between species
Here is a minute " lurve in " between Winnie & Albert this afternoon
This behaviour is a daily occurrence
