Well, good news really.
I managed to contact the breeder yesterday and she has said that she will take Tallulah back and he will end up going to a poultry auction.
So-I am thrilled that it is sorted, happy that he will end up at an auction rather than on someone's plate, grateful that I managed to get hold of the breeder and she will take him back yet I cannot help still feeling gutted that he is going.
Yesterday morning he really went to town trying to crow. It was still not a full crow but boy it was loud. I know that the miserable people round here would not tolerate hearing him for long. I just wish I didn't live here then it wouldn't have been a problem and we could have kept our much loved pet.
Anyway-I am pleased that it is all sorted and no doubt a few tears will be shed this afternoon as I put him in a box and have to say goodbye. He has been a brilliant bird and will truly be very missed by us all.
I wish for him a long and happy life wherever he may end up and I pray that he brings as much joy to his new owners as he has bought to us.
