Fairy Nuff's Avatar Actually he's picked a forest walk to set up home but they should be lecking soon so hopefully he will bog off somewhere with more girlies and less people.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar The top male sets himself up to attract a hareem in a bit of the forest, often a small clearing with a mound in it which is called a Leck...which the other males then try to oust him from making the most gawd awful clucking sound like beer glugging out of a bottle only louder.
