Re: Blind Giblet & friends at Chickenopolous

Oh I am so sorry Kitty. The thought of losing Giby so soon after Poppy must be awful for you. You have done a marvellous job of looking after them as they have reached such tremendous ages. Giby is in the best place with you cuddling her, knowing she is so loved and safe in your arms. Take care Kitt...

Re: My little dog Angel

That's really good news Spreckly. So glad to hear that Angel is doing well and the lump has not progressed. Must be such a relief to you. It's nice to hear some good news for a change.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Hello Bob. What a marvellous update. You are certainly having interesting times and it is great news that you have (nearly) secured your dream home with land. I hope it all goes very smoothly for you and you can move in as soon as possible. You must get some photo's of your new abode and of course a...

Re: My little dog Angel

Oh Spreckly so sorry to hear this news about Angel. Must be another dreadful worry for you. I will keep everything crossed that it is not a serious issue. Like Mo said, they are part of the family and are very important in our lives. I am sure she is in the very best of hands and that the vet will g...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Bob if Simon Dawson can do it, who wrote Pigs in Clover and The Sty's The Limited, I am sure you can. You could sack work completely and write your book whilst looking after all these animals.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Oh Bob sounds like you are having so much fun with this farming lark!! Your stories are wonderful. You really should write a book, you never know it might make you a millionaire.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Again, lovely to hear your update Bob. Sounds like you have been getting yourself in some trouble though!! Are you thinking about buying the farm? Seems a perfect solution for you and your critters. If so, you will have me green with envy. Good luck Bob and keep us updated.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Lovely to hear your catch up Bob - I have missed reading about your antics. It may be a hectic time at the moment but you are following your dreams (not mad, but a very brave thing to do). I wish you and your animals all the luck in the world and keep chasing that dream because before you know it, i...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Well I have actually decided that there is no room at the Inn, unfortunately. Because Vera pecks everybody and has to have a run on her own I have got no where else to put another coop and run. Space is an issue for me so the two girls I was offered are finding alternative accommodation. They will g...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

I think I may have a decision to make. Last week, before I lost Violet, a friend of ours rang to say the woman over the road from him was getting rid of two hens and would we have them???? At first it was a definite NO NO because with Vera having to be on her own I wouldn't have the room for them. A...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

The other girls are OK Sandy apart from Ivy does seem to have lost some of her sight, but is still coping and eating and drinking on her own. As for that Vera ....... well I don't think she w...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Hi Kitla - vi was five and a half years old. I have always had Warren hens and she was actually the oldest girl I have had as they are not really known for living long lives. I have lost them at just over two years of age with egg laying issues mainly. I've loved them all so much but Vi was very spe...
