Re: noise: please help :(

I find with mine they're noisy when they know I'm about - as soon as they hear me open the kitchen door they start chunnering to be let out/given something to eat etc. If I manage to creep up on them they are usually quiet just making a noise when they lay or are frightened by something. So they may...

Characters

Do any of you have chickens that are particular characters? When I got my last two chickens a few weeks ago - one has turned into a complete character - never had a chicken like her - she's into everything and frightened of nothing. Under my feet all the time - I nearly took her head off in the pati...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I've not posted in this thread before but I've struggled with my weight all my life. About ten years ago I managed to lose about 7 stone but some of it gradually crept back on again. Anyway the last three months I've been attending "Choose to Change" - my GP referred me and it's a weight l...

Re: Julie's chicken keeping diary

Lovely Rita laid her first egg today ... she's been stooping down the last week so knew it was on the cards but she still looks a baby so was a bit surprised. Think she's my favourite chicken ever - she never stops talking and follows me everywhere - she's adorable :-D

Re: Happy Valley

It's fantastic isn't it? Two more episodes so sure there'll be lots more nail biting moments. Sarah Lancashire is a really good actress and its so well scripted. I was really looking forward to "Prey" but think this is so much better.

Re: Baldy Bums !!

My white star has a bald bum and has done for a few months now - no sign of pecking, mites nothing like that. Showing no signs of growing back. All the others fine. A mystery :?

Re: Fox warning

well said - I've spent the afternoon in the garden with mine but just put them back in the run - they're grumbling but you're right it's easy to slip up then the sun's shining and no sign of danger about. Better safe than sorry.
