    After Elvis our Large Light Sussex Cock expired, our household and the campers were oversleeping as they missed the loud morning call (with no snooze button) so we need to replace him.

    Red Kite Camping now has a new Cock bird. Called 'Red'. So far the hens seem very happy and his call this morning was superb. :Smile:

    Now that is a game bird, fine fellow, but it doesn't look like a Sussex light.

    Will the hens feel that they're being unfaithful?

    He is a Black Copper Maran, he is a French bird, picked up 3 nice Maran hens too. They lay very dark brown eggs

    I thought so, one of our five hens is a French Maran, same colouring as your cock-bird, fabulous eggs, but not as many as the Sussex light.

    I originally said same colour as your cock, but I knew Niggle, OldMo, Yosser and all the other old G*ts on here would have had something seedy to say about it.

    Anyway, showed Jackie the picture, looking forward to a visit next year, she can't wait to see your [STRIKE]coc[/STRIKE] new addition............:Laughing:..:

    Theres nothing quite like a red cock to get the sympathy of all the local birds.

    Cracking photo Jim .. and a great looking cock.. hope to meet him soon.. :thumb:

    reminds me of an old joke..

    The priest in a small Irish village loved the cock and ten hens he kept in the hen house behind the church. But one Saturday night the cock went missing! The priest knew that cock fights happened in the village so he started to question his parishioners in church the next morning.

    During Mass, he asked the congregation, "Has anybody got a cock?"

    All the men stood up.

    "No, no," he said, "that wasn't what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock?"

    All the women stood up.

    "No, no," he said, "that wasn't what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock that doesn't belong to them?"

    Half the women stood up.

    "No, no," he said, "that wasn't what I meant. Has anybody seen MY cock?"

    All the nuns, three altar boys, two priests and a goat stood up.
