Character profile:

Green White Black was timid as chick, but a good follower.  He has no siblings, as his sibling sadly died of a yolk sac infection prior to hatching. Green White was diagnosed as having cataracts prior to the move to Somerset, and has had to be taken into captivity.  He has been moved to Pensthorpe Conservation Trust where he will be well looked after.   His operation is scheduled for mid January 2015.   He has been named Merry by the Pensthorpe team.
