Don’t go breaking our heart – meet Kiki Dee
If you hear a loud bleat and turn a corner, you may be surprised to come face to face with this 1.9kg spunky lamb, Kiki Dee.
Little Kiki Dee is petite, there’s no doubt about that. All 1.9 adorable kilograms of her! She literally fits in the palm of our hands. Although we must say she has taken up far bigger real estate in our hearts. But do not let size fool you for this spunky lass has a set of lungs on her like no other as she leaves no one in doubt when she wants her bottle, belting out her melodious “baas”.

Born the weakest of triplets, Kiki Dee got the rough end of the stick right from the start in more ways than one. With survival rates for wee lambs such as she poor, and even poorer for those who have come off worse for wear on the receiving end of a bird’s beck – her right eye its victims. But nobody is telling her that, for the last thing we wish is for her to go breaking our heart. And so, we are doubling down, medicating up, and we’re giving her our heart because “it’s up to us, babe. Whoa, we think we can make it…”
Little did we know, on the first night we met Soldier, that the inky darkness of the sky above was to be foreboding of her fate. She, patiently waiting roadside with the humans who had come to her rescue after the vehicle collision that had rendered her immobile.
With his glistening red comb flopped outrageously over his eyes and his body ensconced by the most silky soft of feather boas, made of the real deal, Earl’s haute couture may not look out of step on the catwalk of Fashion Week or even the cover of Vogue.
Whilst it is hard to define, it is easy to feel, just what makes Special special. For it takes but a moment with this happy-go-lucky little chap to intuit this.
With no need for a Coco Chanel creation or Gucci accessory, our Paris and Nicky Hilton are glamourous girls.
Having difficultly seeing his new world around him, at first Peaky Blinders would scoot away at the mere hint of our presence. But now not so.
Within metres of the road the tiny bird fluttered and flipped. At first thought to be a grey pigeon clipped by a fast-moving car.
As farmed animals, in the scheme of things, it never ends well for them. And every action thus far afforded this mother and child had fuelled their point of view.
There is little doubt Brunswick is a beautiful bird. His magnificent plumage captures the eye, whilst the brilliant radiance of his comb and wattles sets the heart a-flutter.
Around 4.40 pm on the 11th of January 2023, hope met the reality of our promise, as the last Silkie rooster was removed from the tiny wire prison that had been his home for heaven knows how long.
