They’re a dime a dozen
The floodgates have opened since news of the Kerikeri feijoa that was doing a very good impersonation of a kiwi (But they can perch, May 9).
All sorts of freak feijoas have come to light, including Kerikeri couple John and Sue Willetts’ ground-breaking photo of a small family of feijoa birds — mum, dad and junior — which had set up camp on a piece of firewood in their packing shed.
Jessica Jack had a photo of what she said was just one of many feijoas resembling the national bird that her father Peter Jack had found in his Kerikeri orchard over the years, while Shontelle Mustchin, of Christchurch, contacted the Northern Advocate about another kiwi-shaped feijoa that a friend was selling on Trade Me as a fundraiser for the Child Cancer Foundation. It went for $20.
Some come with accessories.
