It suddenly got busy around here on the catering front. I was preparing homemade rice pud for my other half, and feeding the chooks, and then heard a familiar squawk. I was delighted and relieved! I’ve not heard or seen my feathered buddies since mid-July, and at the time I was concerned for Soyuz; the older of the two, as he appeared to have a problem swallowing. It’s unusual for them to stay away for so long, especially in the bad weather, and I wondered if they were okay. But here they are, asking for food! I wish they were being looked after properly at their home, bless ‘em. Nonetheless, it’s good to see them both safe and sound.
