 Ore Oduba with A Busy Day for Birds

You can have loads of fun copying Ore as he pretends to be busy birds for a day, wiggling his feathers and saying 'Cock-a-doodle-doo!' Just watch out for the swooping starlings! There's a British Sign Language version of the video, too.

So, snuggle up together, hit the play buttons below and enjoy.
