Sometimes when you love something you have to set it free. I love Sir Sparky D'Uccle so very, very much. I love everything about him from his cute fuzzy cheeks down to his feathered feet that make swooshing noises when he walks like he's wearing corduroy pants.
His wife, Lady Millie D'Uccle is every bit as sweet as he is. She never wants to leave his side and is very demure and lady-like.
Her maidservant, Twiggy, is just a wee little thing. So, so precious.
My girl Pearl is a goofball. She kind of wattles like a duck when she runs.
And Minnie won the Mother Hen of the Year award this year, taking the best care of her babies.
Her baby girl is almost all grown up and will need a name soon.
I love them all dearly. But Old Jack's side of the coop is getting crowded. Jack doesn't like Sparky. Even though I love them and would be willing to stash them in my closet, the right thing to do would be to find them a new home. A new home where Sparky can be the man of the house. As you can imagine, I couldn't let them go to just anybody.
No. Somehow, someway, I would need to find The Best Chicken Momma Ever. Only she would be allowed to take my precious Sparky. It seemed like an impossible task. I mean how does one exactly go looking for The Best Chicken Momma Ever? But luckily The Best Chicken Momma Ever just happens to read my blog! She took notice when I mentioned I would need to start looking for a new home for them. She had her Momma send me an e-mail and ask if I might consider her as a candidate for Sparky's new Momma and attached the following photo.
And then waited anxiously for a response.
And then I said "Of course! Of course!" I recognize The Best Chicken Momma Ever when I see her! So Sparky and all his ladies are going to move to Wisconsin to live in their fancy new coop near a cabin in the woods where I just know they will live happily, ever, after.
