I know it's not art but this made me laugh, and made my husband jump!

I was just finishing posting on my blog when my husband shouted 'Oi' - something had landed with a thunk on top of the roof where he was sitting, and giving  him the beady eye!
Can you see who is tapping on the window?
It's none other than........

Zola Buddy Bantam - her namesake was a runner who always ran barefoot.
She obviously thought that it was time her and the others got fed.
The clocks have gone back - so the bantams queue up outside the door at 3.45pm now - which in their body clock is their usual feeding time of 4.45pm
Gozzie - who is a black Rosecomb bantam has the habit of sitting on the windowsill and tapping on the window to tell us that they want feeding.  She also does it when we are eating too!

This is a new trick for Zola!   I'll have to clip her wings again.
I called her down when I went out...

And she flew right across the lawn, almost to where their run is - in an attempt to get to the food first!
Cheeky thing.

Bad Bantam, hope you smacked her bum x

She is obviously well trained Lottie. The others must have put her up to it!!!


Lynn Stevens said...

hahaha, must have been quite a scare!

LOL, Lottie - I love birds - they can be such characters and it sounds as if yours certainly are! Far more sensible to stay with their body clocks instead of interfering as we humans do. Missed your blog and had to go searching for the link again to make sure it was back on my blog roll. Don't know how it was deleted but it was accidental - so sorry. Hope you're well. Cath x

Oh wow! She isn't the little slip of a thing she was when you first got her! Sounds like she is still winning a few races to the food though. Lovely pics x
