Well, I managed it. It took a while but I did it. I found Reggie a new home.
It wasn't easy and it involved a 150 mile round trip to drive him there and check his new home was ok.
He now lives at a stud farm, which is probably somewhat appropriate. This one is for horses. At his new home he has a large amount of new Pekin wives and is allowed to free range over the farm. It is a brilliant outcome - I'd like to live on that farm, never mind Reg!
But at home it is quiet.
And I am sad.
