Re: Our Hen Adventure

The girls really enjoyed their pumpkin today. I thinks it's still under attack at the moment. Peep loved it the most, she's been pecking at it all day. I felt a bit silly carving a chicken into a pumpkin this morning, but was so worth it watching them have so much fun with it. I also never realised ...

Re: karen's chicken diary

What lucky girls Karen, butternut squash and pies! Good thing my girls can't read or they'd be demanding a pie as well.

We have the tapping as well on our door, but I think it's more of a head butt as they as try and look through the glass bless them.

Re: Our Hen Adventure

Thanks for the reassurance, google was making me go crazy! Limestone flour sounds good and if it's powdery probably to get them to eat. I'm really going to miss them in the dark evenings, I'll have to watch them in my camera when I'm at work instead i think I'll add butternut squash to the treat lis...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

I feel like I've not got much to update on lately as I don't see much of the girls in the week now. We used to have some time before work and after work, but now they get up so late and are on the way to bed when I get in. They do get up again when they see me though to check for treats! After loosi...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

It still feels very strange only having three girls now, it's far too quiet and manageable! Although saying that they have nearly eaten a whole banana tree now between them over the weekend. I definitely think they've noticed a change. Sweetie seems a lot more grumpy with the other two and Dollys be...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

Unfortunately little Mellow had to be put to sleep this morning I found her really floppy and eyes closed as I got them up this morning. The vet said something about an infection and going intoshicj. She was nearly gone by the time we got her in. I can't believe here's only three now and this time l...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

Just a quick update to say that poor Lolly had to be put down tonight I came home and only saw 4 chickens so knew something wasn't quite right. I found her huddled in bed and then could see she'd had a vent prolapse, which looked a lot worse than what Dolly had the other week. The vet thinks she was...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

Thanks Sandy and thanks Kitla for advice re the fumer. I've saw one in pets at hone yesterday and it looks quite scary, but will give it a go if the mites hang around. I don't know how they're still surviving! Dolly seems so much better in herself already. One day of rest and she couldn't wait to be...

Re: Our Hen Adventure

Hi Karen, girls are ok thank you. Sorry it took so long for a reply! Update: my husband and I have been on holiday (at home) so the girls have had a lovely couple of weeks being outside all day and digging up our garden! It's lucky they're so cute that they can get away with these things The red mit...
