There’s a white rooster going up the steps. This guy is walking into the yard with his mobile phone. His phone is playing music. The chooks are following him. What’s his name? The big fellow himself? Oh Golly I better tidy that up. The big bloke in the yellow shirt is named Pedro. He’s a Pied Piper. He has music on his phone which he is holding in his hand. This is taking place in the garden around here. There is a statue in the background. He’s so happy. He’s saying “The team is all here today this morning and they’re all in line.” The chooks in the background are saying “Where are all the little chooks?” He’s a teacher of some sort; he’s got a determined look, his arms are outstretched and he’s got them all under control. He looks a happy bloke because he likes what he is doing. He looks like he is posing for a photo. He is saying “look at me, look how good I am with all the chooks following.” It looks like all the big roosters have turned up with their offsprings. Pedro looks like he has looked after them for a long time. I don’t think Pedro has a family; he might be a student travelling around. He’s content with his lot, happy with all the little ones he has produced. There are a lot of them… about 18. The white one is called Snowy. Snowy is walking away because he’s disgusted with the other chooks. None of the other chickens have Christian names. They don’t mind because they all live together and they know the love is there. Pedro is saying “I’ve done everything I‘ve needed to do to raise these little ones. Now I am moving off to a new adventure!
