So sorry to hear you've lost some hens. I suppose if we should choose a way for them to go, quietly and of old age after a very happy life would be the one we would choose.
Hope you're looking after yourself as well as the flock!
Huge condolences for all the hens lost recently, Bob's hens and Ivybelle. May their days over the bridge be spent with the sun on their wings and peace in their hearts
Dory Grey, Pokey, Smudge and Coco
Yes, mine are dying back now too. I've dug most of them up, but left a few in the hope (vain I think!) that they may get a last burst of life
This is a really interesting thread! I don't believe that history is history - the past shapes the present and we feel its effects far into the future. Also I believe the past offers us lessons if we would only learn them (but as humans we will continue to make mistakes anyway!) Definitely we are fe...
It's the rest of the unnecessary plastic packaging that also gets me. Why does everything have to come wrapped in plastic, insde plastic or cardboard boxes? So much waste and pollution
For the 4th day running Dory has been out in the run and has not gone back into the coop so I think FINGERS CROSSED AND TOUCH WOOD that she isn't broody any more! It's so nice to see her pottering about and causing mayhem with the others, and she's stopped making that funny noise and fluffed up head...
Agree with you completely Mo. It's classic divide and conquer, stirring up hatred to other groups in order to deflect and disguise from what is really going on, and that is the continued transfer of wealth and assets into the hands of the already excessively rich. We don't need new planning laws, we...
Do you mean Columbian Blacktails? If so, they aren't a new breed

Indeed LL, a no deal Brexit is going to create some supply chain issues there's no doubt about that, on top of issues that the pandemic will cause too. I'd already been putting aside some staples anticipating some shortages in the short term, like pasta and such, even before the virus hit. I think w...
My plants are dying off now so mine won't grow any bigger. Normally you 'cure' the rind by leaving it out to dry somewhere warm & sunny for a couple of weeks - this helps to preserve it through winter, but I haven't ever had any success with this really. Mine have always gone rotten but maybe th...
How wonderful to hear Poppy is doing well! And the rest of the opolouses of course. It's so worrying when they get ill. My guys spent the heatwave sitting under the trees & bushes near the back door, and luckily for them I'd manage to bag a whole galia melon for 20p, so that kept them going for ...
Egbert! I was thinking about Egbert the other day! I'm not sure I want to encourage her though. How long did MissPiggy sit on Egbert before she gave up? She bokked around the garden semi happily when I locked her out, and I did the same again yesterday for a couple of hours but she's still broody. I...
