Re: Surge in keeping chickens interest

We'd booked a re-homing in April but we've been informed that it's been cancelled by the farmer. Don't want to think about what will happen to those girls now The email also advised about the surge in chicken keeping but also warns about keeping your girls safe as apparently some have been going 'mi...

Re: Wet windy and wild

Very excited >fi< Just reserved 6 caged hens for the next local re homing on 25th April )t' Hopefully it will be a bit warmer and dryer by then and it gives us time to prepare the quarters - stock the minibar and spring clean {rofwl} {rofwl} {rofwl}

Re: Storm Dennis

We've been really lucky. We're in North Shropshire so the worst has been further south from us. The fields are under water and our lane has been flooded on and off but thankfully it isn't near the house. The girls run is a mud bath though, we keep trying to dig it over (which they love) to get rid o...

Re: Wet windy and wild

Ahhh, you are good Sandy. We've been keeping chickens since 2012 now but never re homed mainly due to not having the facilities to keep them separate from the other girls and the time really to spend with these fragile girls but we've now decided the time is right and have registered with a local re...

Did anyone watch this dramatization and the documentary that was on too? I'm too young to have know what happened. What an almighty stitch up for that poor Steven Ward.

Re: Call the midwife is back!

Yes me too {cry} You wouldn't think they'd axe it as it's so popular. I love it too and there was a picture on Googlie the other day showing the original cast, they looked really old fashioned even compared to the 1960's episodes that are on now.

Re: Advice for stubborn Lurcher!!!

Its' hard to tell Gwen as he doesn't do it on every walk just when the mood takes him. Sometimes he'll stop and if you turn the other way he's go willingly, it's when he stops and you just can't get him to move in any direction that it's a pain He looks up you with his adoring big brown eyes like he...

Re: Rodent Problems

The ferret litter comment was very interesting as I'd never heard of that. We were plagued with rats last winter and caught quite a few in the cage traps we bought (there are always more around than you think). We also bought a rat proof feeder which is great but if you take the food in then they ar...

Re: Feather Eating

Hi Gwen, yes I put some posters up yesterday and also my friend put it on FB(I'm not on it) and a lady came back to say it looks like her neighbours cat who moved a couple of months ago not too far from us so that sounds quite likely. She said it was very friendly and would go into other people's ho...

Re: Feather Eating

Forgot to post my experience last Friday when I 'tried' to give the girls some sardines Took out a tin of sardines in two small bowls, I left them outside while I went in to poo a scoop. When I went out to get them there was a very satisfied looking cat with a big grin on it's face and no sardines E...
