(This is the Big Posh Bird in Hand project that wasn't ready in time.)
During the "Ask Spanky" coffee morning held at Ferdinand's Flotsam and Jetsam Emporium earlier this month, Mrs Pippy piped up and asked
"Hi Spanky, My sister Buffy and I are identical. I need some individuality, can you help me?"
Mrs Pippy is the Buff Rock Bantam on the left.
"A bird in your hand is just a bird,
but six in your hair is a masterpiece."

It is so hard to get a good shot of shinyness with a camera (well I can't do it). The background is loud gold and silver and the headdress is edged with shiny bronze but I can't get it to show up without making the rest of it look like smare.
This is the best I could manage for shinyness (Sorry Spanky, don't sulk) -
But with messing with the colours it could look like this:-
My youngest son says that he can tell which hen has laid each egg by the egg's smell.
Amazing huh? (That's ma boy!)
Alas, along with most everyone else, I don't have this talent (perhaps it is a gift that skips a generation?) .
So Spanky bless her, has fixed it that every human bean can tell which eggs Mrs Pippy has laid.
