Hello and welcome back to the Animal Park blog. At long last the chickens are allowed out after their own pandemic. It has been long stint inside due to avian flu. It is just fantastic to see them stretching their legs again foraging away. I popped in to see the O’feather family who are in pen 1 today. Here is what Mr O’feather had to say.
“It is great to finally be out of our last isolation at first it wasn’t too bad, I managed to get a lot of work done around the coop and Mrs O’feather really honed her domestic skills’ after a week or so it got a bit tiresome. Luckily we were given things to do to keep our minds active. Ive never thought of myself as an avid branch picker before but I cant get enough of it. The main upside was the time we had together, we are both usually busy all day but we could finally stop and talk, remembering what brought us together in the first place. Let me just say a lot of eggs were laid in the last few months. In those moments we felt we needed different company, I would cockadoodle-call the other families in the area, it really helped keep us connected. Its great that we can finally get back to some normality'
It was great to see Mr O’feather with a twinkle in his eye and a spring in his step, looking forward to a lovely summer.I can honestly say I have never seen the O’feather coop so tidy and Summer Ready!
Keep an eye out next week to see who I’ve had the chance to interview over the weekend
Hello the whizz-bee here, I have started this blog to keep you up to date on all the goings on at the animal park!!! I will be talking to all my friends down the park and let you know what they have to say. Bare in mind the chickens can be quite talkative and don’t let each other get a word in edge ways, some times the big boys start shouting at each other, no doubt you have heard it.
I might even be able to get the donkeys to tell you their latest plans (between you and me their are some masterminds in that pen) escape attempts are usually successful, walter the alpaca will no doubt want to share what he has been up to, trying the latest tik tok dance craze or working on his memoirs.
The goats of course will be busy with their latest fitness regime, they tend to eat as much as they exercise, there is a lot of energy in that pen,luckily they can run and jump to their hearts content to burn it off.
When it comes to the pigs i will try my hardest, unfortunately there is only a small part of the day they tend to chat, between eating and sleeping, hopefully ‘tank’ will give you some of his tips to romancing the ladies, he is a dark horse that one.
The sheep are always good for a chat, taking on life’s big questions, eating all the weed in their pen and then sitting back and thinking deeply, its all about mindfulness and woolness.
Once i catch up with the peacock, wallabees and deer i will let you know. Look out for an interview with the swans, what really makes them tick.
Thanks for reading
