#038 gilbert the pheasant


"Gilbert is a classic country gentleman running through life being as politically incorrect as he can get away with. With his home-brewed slow-gin filled hipflask tucked under his wing, he pecks at people’s good humour with his controversial wit until he has the room in a complete flap, declares he’s won the argument and moves on. His confrontational spatting is far more than just a game; it’s a way of life! Be wary of starting up a conversation with this confident cock, as whether man, beast or bird he’s sure to find just the issues to get to you, leaving you offended, angry and gunning for him." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
