Chicken in Charge

Whilst Acorn is moping and Berry is eating I thought I'd come on here and tell you the 'need-to-know' facts. It seems to me that while the pigs have been chatting to you, you seem to have forgotten who the real heroes are ... let me explain ...

My name is Rusty and I am spokes-cockerel for the chickens. This is obviously because I am the handsomest, fiercest, and most importantly superior to all the others due to being a male. We, as chickens, have a very important role in the family business. It is my responsibility to awaken our pets (Emma and family) every morning so that they do not oversleep and forget to feed us and the greedy pigs (a travesty which would not be forgotten easily). Also the others produce eggs to keep our pets in a good healthy condition, so that they can continue to happily run Emma's Pigs. I feel that we do a tip top job, and (of course) if it wasn't for me the poor pigs would starve to death. Why isn't it called 'Rusty's Pigs'?

So you see, really I single-handedly run Rusty's Pigs and am jolly good at it. Please leave me a comment, or maybe a congratulations on how superb I am at this whole enterprise thing.

Thank you for listening, you were a spiffing audience.
Must go, my chariot awaits, can't disappoint the fans now can we?

Fed up!

I'm not very happy with Emma. Yesterday she let me and Berry into a nice new pen with lots of lush green grass to dig up. But then, just before bed time she enticed Berry into a separate pen of her own. We can see each other through the fence but we have our own arks. I was really cross with Emma and refused to eat my dinner, but Berry didn't seem to mind.

Emma said it was for the best as Berry has been getting very fat recently and needed a space of her own.

I just hope Emma's puting her on a diet so we can fit in the same ark again soon.

Open Day - 19th July 3pm

Emma has just told us that she is organising a special day when anyone who wants to can come and see us.

This promises to be a fun packed afternoon, which should also raise some money for charity.
Included in the ticket price will be:

  • a tractor ride to meet and stroke all of us pigs, (hopefully some very young piglets too-I'm not sure where they're coming from!);

  • a captivating culinary experience with local chef Nick Bryan

  • an opportunity to Pig Out (excuse the pun) on our own mouth watering pork rolls and sausages. (I think that's some sort of food)

  • A glass of wine or fruit juice

  • a pig based quiz with a family BBQ pack as a prize (I think that's some sort of food too.)

Tickets cost £5.50 per adult, £3.50 per child and £15 for a family of 4. Please buy tickets in advance as places/food will be limited. Profits on the above will be donated to The Heartlung Transplant Fund (Charity Number 121138)
Telephone 01981 500294 for tickets

I really hope you can make it as I would love to meet you too.

The Ginger Nuts

I really am beginning to wonder about the other breeds of pigs. We've only just educated the Plum puddings about eating their food, when Emma gets some other pigs, who would rather have their tummies tickled than be fed!!

Are these breeds pigs at all, or are they just curly tailed ant eaters?

Take a look at this:




Look they're lying in their food!

We call them the Ginger Nuts (Emphasis on the Nuts) , but they call themselves Tamworths.
