Let me in!

Gutsy9 (the 5-month-old peachick I raised inside the house because none of our peahens were interested) is thriving outside now. He sleeps in a pen with the ducks, Zaruma and Tapper, but every morning I find him in the adjacent pen with the turkeys, Bubble and Baby Turkey! Oh well at least he doesn’t venture into the geese pen because Godfrey hates him.

As soon as I open the three pens to let them all free-range for the day, I am met with a cacophony of excited noises and then G9 actually sprints after me to the house and follows me inside.

Until today. Today I decided to say no to him, and tried to explain that his peacock poop is the reason. He wasn’t happy!

Oh and G9 is definitely a boy because our friend, Mike, who raises peas told me so. I’m not as thrilled as Anthony was when Ming was born and he yelled IT’S A BOY!

Secretly I was hoping for a little peahen – ha!

  1. Well, at least we can go back to calling Gutsy9 he – that was confusing πŸ˜‰ It’s a grumpy look alright!

    Oh come on let him in the house… what is a little peacock poop… I can’t smell a thing…

    But think of all those glorious feather displays you’ll get when Gutsy9 is all grown up and out to catch the ‘girls’.
    (like Bulldog, I can’t smell any peacock poop either – are you sure there’s poop in the house – LOL).

  4. He *does* look peeved, Julie! πŸ˜‰

  5. Awww – such an indignant look on his face. Poor Gutsy9, but it’s just another step to him growing up – he’ll get used to it. πŸ™‚

    I adore Gutsy 9 and who doesn’t Godfrey hate ?

  7. Hope this isn’t duplicate msg…. but anyway…I can just see Gutsy as the door closed ‘in front’ of him…hope he adjusts… I can appreciate ‘why’ he can’t come in anymore though…Diane

  8. He’s turning into a fine-looking bird.

    Everything’s relative. I went to the circus yesterday afternoon, and one of the elephants decided it was time to go, right in the middle of the ring. G9 surely can’t make that kind of a mess!

  10. fgassette says:

    WOW! Look how Gutsy 9 has grown.


  11. Your audience is quite hilarious! Easy to poke fun when the poop isn’t in your house just waiting to be stepped on. The look on Gutsy-9’s face is priceless! If there were diapers available for birds I’d let him in. He has gotten so big, I ‘m so happy that he is still sooooo cute.

  12. Gosh Julie. He’s growing

  13. lucewriter says:

    Aw what a cutie!! He’ll be brilliantly beautiful when he finishes growing up.

  14. He is a credit to you Julie, and he is looking peeved because he does love his Mummy.

    Next thing he will be wanting to sleep on your bed!

    Julie, I can just see Gutsy clicking his heels together going “There’s no place like home, There’s no place like home.” Take care and have a great day. Bill

    I can’t blame you. I wouldn’t want to go behind him all day with the pooper scooper either. poor baby though, he just doesn’t understand

  18. sbcallahan says:

    oh how can you say no to that little face??? well if i had to clean the poop i would say no too! he is adorable though.

  19. Awww, lovely little friend. πŸ™‚

  20. Love his angry face! Priceless.
