0:01:030:01:06

Today we're in South Wales to meet Rhys and his pet cockerel.

0:01:100:01:13

Let's go and say hello.

0:01:130:01:15

-Hello, Rory.

-Hi, Rhys. And you must be Mum? Hello.

-Hi, Rory.

0:01:220:01:25

Now, I've heard that you've got a very special pet cockerel?

0:01:250:01:29

-Is he home?

-Yeah.

-Where is he?

0:01:290:01:31

-He's in the back garden.

-I'm very excited to meet him.

0:01:310:01:36

COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!

0:01:360:01:38

-So, who's this?

-Colin, my pet cockerel.

-He is very, very handsome.

0:01:450:01:49

-Don't you think?

-Yeah.

0:01:490:01:51

A cockerel is what you call a young, male chicken.

0:01:510:01:55

Why is Colin so special?

0:01:550:01:57

Because I saw him hatch out of the egg.

0:01:570:02:00

-Wow. So, you've known him since he was teeny-weeny?

-Yeah.

0:02:000:02:04

What did you do to look after him when he was small?

0:02:040:02:07

Gave him food and water.

0:02:070:02:09

Now, you and Colin like to do something special together.

0:02:090:02:12

-What do you do with Colin?

-We take him to poultry shows.

0:02:120:02:16

Oh, wow. Poultry is a word given to birds like ducks,

0:02:160:02:20

geese and chickens which can be kept as pets, or used for farming.

0:02:200:02:25

A poultry show is a competition where these birds go to compete for awards.

0:02:250:02:30

Have you ever won any awards?

0:02:300:02:32

I've won lots of cards, and lots of rosettes and two trophies.

0:02:320:02:38

Two trophies? Wow, you must be really good at looking after chickens.

0:02:380:02:42

And Colin won all of the trophies and Daisy won some of the rosettes.

0:02:420:02:46

Wow. Well, who's Daisy? DAISY SQUAWKS

0:02:460:02:49

-Oh!

-That's Daisy.

-Here's Daisy, now. Hello, Daisy.

0:02:490:02:52

Daisy is Colin's wife.

0:02:520:02:54

Wow, she's very beautiful as well.

0:02:540:02:57

What sort of chicken are these guys?

0:02:570:02:59

-Booted Bantams.

-Why are they called Booted Bantams?

0:02:590:03:03

-Because they have feathers on their feet.

-Yes, I can see that.

0:03:030:03:06

-It's like little feathery boots, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:03:060:03:10

That's very smart indeed.

0:03:100:03:13

So, what's the proper way to hold Daisy? How do you do it?

0:03:130:03:17

-Put this hand underneath here.

-Ah-huh.

0:03:170:03:19

-Where does the other hand go?

-On top.

-That's to protect the wings.

0:03:190:03:23

-Does she like having cuddles?

-Ah-hum.

-Look at how big her tail is!

0:03:230:03:27

It's quite big.

0:03:270:03:30

-There you are, Daise.

-Well, I think your chickens are fantastic.

0:03:340:03:38

And I have a special surprise for you later.

0:03:380:03:41

Oh, I like surprises. That's exciting.

0:03:410:03:44

Ferne, can you give us some more facts about our feathery friends?

0:03:440:03:48

Of course, Rory. One.

0:03:480:03:51

Male chickens, like Colin, are called cockerels when they are young

0:03:510:03:56

and cocks when they are older. Female chickens, like Daisy,

0:03:560:04:00

are called pullets when they are young and hens when they are older.

0:04:000:04:04

Two. The noise a cockerel makes is called a crow.

0:04:040:04:08

Cockerels are famous for crowing in the morning to wake us up,

0:04:080:04:12

-COCKEREL CROWS

-but they can crow any time of day.

0:04:120:04:16

Three. Cockerels have a special bit on top of their head called a comb

0:04:160:04:21

and a dangly bit underneath their beak called a wattle. Four.

0:04:210:04:27

A cockerel can have lots of different coloured feathers,

0:04:270:04:31

like black and white, orange and red and even green and blue.

0:04:310:04:36

-DOG BARKS

-Care Time!

0:04:410:04:45

Chickens are great pets if you have the time and space

0:04:450:04:48

to look after them properly. Rhys, do you think you can show me

0:04:480:04:52

-everything you need to do to look after them?

-Yeah.

-Excellent...

0:04:520:04:56

-Is there anyone that can help?

-Euan and Jake, my brothers.

0:04:560:05:00

Oh, fantastic. We've got Colin and Daisy walking back INTO the coop.

0:05:000:05:05

Come on, guys. Get out. We're going to clean that out. Come on, Colin.

0:05:050:05:10

-Aw.

-Bye! Let's clean out, come on!

0:05:100:05:12

COLIN AND DAISY CROW HAPPILY

0:05:140:05:20

-OK, where are your brothers?

-They're there.

0:05:200:05:24

-Hi, guys.

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Rory.

0:05:240:05:27

OK, we'll clean out this end and you guys change the food and water.

0:05:270:05:32

You can take that, good work.

0:05:420:05:44

-Daisy laid an egg.

-Wow, no way!

0:05:440:05:47

-Well, we better take care of that.

-Yeah.

0:05:470:05:50

'We need to clean out the coop every day to keep it nice and clean.

0:05:560:06:02

-'We take out the old bedding.'

-Excellent.

0:06:020:06:05

'Daisy and Colin need fresh water every day.'

0:06:140:06:18

COLIN CROWS

0:06:180:06:21

Right, that's all tidied up.

0:06:240:06:27

-Now we need to put more in.

-Some fresh stuff. Where is it?

0:06:270:06:31

-There.

-Tah-dah. Right, let's get the fresh stuff in.

0:06:310:06:35

-Do you think Daisy and Colin are going to like this?

-Yeah.

0:06:350:06:39

-They can scratch about in here.

-Yeah.

0:06:390:06:44

'Daisy and Colin eat special chicken pellets.'

0:06:440:06:48

Shall we put the perch and the frame in? I'll take this one.

0:06:510:06:55

There we go. Let's put that one in.

0:06:590:07:03

-There.

-Great.

-Good.

-OK. Now we need to put that back on, don't we?

-Yeah.

0:07:030:07:09

-We put it in round this way.

-That way.

0:07:090:07:12

Here comes the food and water. Excellent.

0:07:150:07:19

Pop the food in first, Euan.

0:07:190:07:22

Good work. And now, the water. Excellent, Jake.

0:07:220:07:28

Right, that's all sorted. What do we need to do now?

0:07:280:07:31

ALL: Wash our hands! RORY: Let's go!

0:07:310:07:34

Phew, that was a lot of hard work. Is it time for my surprise now?

0:07:370:07:41

We're going to take Colin to a poultry show.

0:07:410:07:44

I've never been to a poultry show before. That's exciting.

0:07:440:07:47

What do we have to do to get Colin ready for a poultry show?

0:07:470:07:51

-We gave him a bath three days ago, so he's nice and clean.

-Great.

0:07:510:07:55

Giving Colin a bath a few days before the show means that there's

0:07:550:07:59

time for the natural oils to return to his feathers.

0:07:590:08:02

That way he's not only clean,

0:08:020:08:04

he's also shiny and healthy as well.

0:08:040:08:06

-What else do we have to do to get him ready?

-We've got to clean his feet.

0:08:060:08:12

-What have you got here?

-A flannel and some water in a bowl.

0:08:120:08:15

You give it a nice, gentle wipe then.

0:08:150:08:19

There you are.

0:08:190:08:23

Let's get the other one.

0:08:230:08:27

-Do you think Colin's looking good?

-Yeah.

-Great.

0:08:300:08:33

Well, I think we're ready for the show.

0:08:330:08:36

My Pet And Me!

0:08:390:08:43

COLIN CROWS

0:08:430:08:45

-We're all ready for the poultry show.

-Yeah.

0:08:450:08:48

-It's going to be lots of fun.

-Yes,

0:08:480:08:50

and I think Colin's ready too.

0:08:500:08:52

But if Colin could do anything, what do you think he would do?

0:08:520:08:56

DRUMROLL GONG!

0:08:560:08:58

If my pet could do anything he would be a rock star.

0:08:580:09:03

He would play a big, red guitar with big, gold stars on it.

0:09:030:09:09

And Daisy would play the drums.

0:09:090:09:12

And the stage would have big, colourful lights.

0:09:120:09:16

And there would be a crowd of chickens, cheering for them.

0:09:160:09:19

CHICKENS CLUCK

0:09:190:09:22

We've come to the poultry show to enter Rhys' cockerel, Colin.

0:09:390:09:42

There are lots of awards for the different breeds

0:09:420:09:45

and since Colin is a Booted Bantam, he's competing against other bantams.

0:09:450:09:50

So, Rhys. What are the judges looking for?

0:09:500:09:53

Healthiest and most handsome chickens.

0:09:530:09:56

-Colin is both of those things so I think he has a good chance.

-Yeah.

0:09:560:10:00

Right. Let's hope the judges agree. Come on, let's go.

0:10:000:10:04

QUACK QUACK QUACK!

0:10:110:10:15

-Hello, Colin. What do you think, is he looking glorious?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:10:170:10:22

I think we should wish him good luck.

0:10:220:10:25

-Good luck, Colin.

-Good luck, Colin. Hope the judges love you.

0:10:250:10:29

Aw. Let's go.

0:10:290:10:33

So, while the judges are making their minds up,

0:10:330:10:36

-shall we go and check out the rest of the show?

-Yeah.

-Let's go.

0:10:360:10:40

'There's lots to see at the show, like tractors...'

0:10:400:10:44

-OK, which ones do you like?

-That one and that one.

0:10:440:10:48

That one's cool, isn't it? I like that one.

0:10:480:10:52

'..dog competitions...' Aw, what a cutie.

0:10:520:10:57

'..horse and pony events...

0:10:580:11:02

'..and loads of other animals on show!'

0:11:030:11:06

Hiya. These guys have done well. Look at all the champion badges.

0:11:060:11:10

-It's nice and fluffy.

-Isn't it?

0:11:100:11:12

Hello. Those guys are the winners.

0:11:120:11:17

And while we're away enjoying ourselves,

0:11:170:11:20

the judges are taking a good look at Colin.

0:11:200:11:25

We have had a great look around but I think we should get back

0:11:260:11:30

-and see if Colin's won any awards.

-Yeah, let's go.

-OK.

0:11:300:11:34

Let's see what Colin got. What do you think he got?

0:11:390:11:43

-RORY GASPS

-Best Booted Bantam.

0:11:430:11:47

First, as well! A rosette and "Best Booted Bantam In Show."

0:11:470:11:51

I didn't think he would do it. I thought he would get a two.

0:11:510:11:55

-But now he's got a first and that.

-Yes, you're a champion.

0:11:550:11:59

-Well done, Colin.

-Well done, Colin.

0:11:590:12:02

Rhys, thank you very much for an absolutely brilliant time.

0:12:050:12:08

I've loved learning all about Colin. It's been great fun.

0:12:080:12:12

-Thanks for coming, Rory.

-You're welcome.

0:12:120:12:15

My Pet And Me!

0:12:200:12:23

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Rory. You've got a big smile on your face.

0:12:270:12:31

I've had a great time with my new friends.

0:12:310:12:34

-It was so much fun.

-That's fantastic.

0:12:340:12:36

Well, Rosie and Milly are getting a brush. Do you want to help out?

0:12:360:12:40

-Definitely. Looks like you need a hand.

-I do.

-There we go.

0:12:400:12:46

Pets are brilliant but remember you shouldn't touch an animal

0:12:460:12:50

unless the owner says it's OK.

0:12:500:12:53

Two pets you can play with are ours. Go on to the CBeebies website and

0:12:530:12:57

play the My Pet And Me game.

0:12:570:12:59

Thanks for spending time with us. We hope you've had lots of fun, too.
