We kept a lot of chickens on our farm and we loved checking the chicken coops for freshly laid eggs. It was always tinged with slight trepidation however, as we had to dodge Peck Bottom the Killer Cockerel, a fearsome beast who guarded his harem of hens fiercely.
We don’t need to explain how he came to be called Peck Bottom, suffice to say he tried it once too often and a bit too aggressively and he met with a swift, but tasty, end. Our Cockerel greeting card and notebooks were created in his honour. Peck Bottom, we salute you.
