Not Just Yet Son!


Wednesday 10 September, 2014 by Uncle Spike

After the demise of Nigel, young Duke-Cock-a-Locky assumed the position of Number Two rooster, second only to Pablo, the resident boss chook around these parts. We do have 6 other roosters, but the are not in contention for said crown, mainly due to the fact that they live in a coup, and all go by the name ‘Soup’.

Almost unheard of normally, but young Duke was never considered a threat to the monarchy, and one never even saw him being chastised for being overly romantic with the ladies right under Pablo’s nose. Until now that is…

The other day saw young Duke launch his inaugural bid for the top job. I guess it had to happen one day, although it seemed to take Pablo by surprise at first.




They fought a fair fight for about an hour. There was no nasty bullying at all; the whole act was almost gentlemanly to be honest. Certainly no comparison to the 2-3 hour bloodily fought battles that Pablo and Nigel used to have.



Round one to Pablo. Like political battles at the ballot box, it’s rare for a challenger to succeed at the first or even second attempt to dethrone an incumbent overlord – but I’m sure Duke’s time will come…. watch out Pablo.

    They are very handsome lads … but the fighting would really bother me!


  4. I would post an English translation for that bit of cockerel-ese but it would require many *********** symbols. One of those two contenders for the crown sounds as if he has got a sore throat!
