Penny Pea Hen lives in our street along with Percy Peacock, poor old Percy has been alone for a number of years as a fox killed his last bride.
Recently someone purchased Penny from a garage sale ( as you do!) as a companion for Percy.
According to our 85 year old neighbour Connie, (who incidently taught me at school) they will never mate as one is an Indian and one is an Asian. Connie feeds them and sometimes they sit on her fence together.
The other day a small boy came door knocking asking who owned Penny as she was in their chook house. He was delighted to discover that no one owns them they roam free but we all keep an eye out for them.
