Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Great to hear your updated Bob and glad that everyone is doing OK. Still no news on your retirement - they really want to keep you don't they? The land sounds interesting and would be a very exciting prospect, but I suppose you have to see where you are work wise. Don't mention rats - I saw one this...

Re: Sandy's Pink Ladies

So sorry to hear that you lost Ronnie. What a wonderful age she was and you were so kind to give her another chance at a wonderful life. It's lovely that the person you rehomed her from really appreciated you giving her this wonderful life and what a kind gesture to send you flowers. I know the feel...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Hi all. Bit sad news about Violet now. She was doing so well for the last couple of weeks but she has slowed right down now and is very wobbly walking. Still eating and drinking OK but I think she is very, very tired now and really showing her age. Bought her some sardines today and put some cod liv...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Don't believe how long it has been since I have posted. Just a brief update for today. My two new (not so new now though) girls Vera and Agnes are absolutely lovely girls. Their little personalities have really come out. I think they now realise we are NOT going to eat them. Agnes is such a cheeky g...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Hope workwise everything turns out for your Bob and that you can enjoy all your time with your critters. Hope you still carry on writing though - love your adventures and stories and would really miss them.

Re: karen's chicken diary

Nice to catch up with you Karen and glad everyone is doing Ok during this moulting period. I was wondering where everyone had gone // forum seems quiet at the moment. My Violet is also slowing down and we were a bit concerned about her a while ago. She would amble around the garden and then stop for...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

So sorry to hear of your loss Bob and that Freezer is not doing well at the moment. Always such sad times, but they are all lucky to have 'found' you to love them and take excellent care of them.

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Think you are both right Mo and Bob. She is perfectly safe so will let her do her own thing. Roof over run and coops is finished now and it looks really good. Hopefully this Winter I will not be soaked so much or covered in mud (and neither will the girls). Thanks Mo and Bob for your replies.

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Hi everyone. Well Agnes and Vera are coming on a treat I am glad to report. They absolutely love their time in the garden and are so frisky and love chasing the pigeons. It's marvellous to watch them having such fun. Ivy still likes a little peck when she can get the chance but I think Vi is too old...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Well my two little babies are doing well as we have only had them now for just over two weeks. Husband has even had a cuddle with them and they have been eating sunflower hearts out of my hands - so we are not the bad scary people they first thought we were. They have had a couple of 'plays' out in ...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Sorry to hear that you have lost some girls Bob. Hope you take comfort in knowing what a wonderful caring life you have given them and that they passed peacefully at home. Always such sad times though. Take good care of yourself.

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Thanks Karen. Vera and Agnes are little brown Warren hens. I know I am biased but they are absolutely beautiful and a much needed pick me up. This morning all is quiet - what a difference to yesterday (day one). Keeping them separate for a while just to be on the safe side. So pleased that Ivy has c...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Terrible news Bob - what an absolutely awful shock for you and the poor hens. Can't believe the fox actually came into your house. I definitely think that lock down is the only way to go at the moment with the fox still hanging about. What a worry for you. Hope the injured hen survives. This chicken...
