Re: And that's why I never wanted ex-batts

I agree too - of the ex-batts I've had one died soon after I got them - the others survived and blossomed for on average 12-18months and had a lovely life. But eventually their rotton start somehow seems to catch up with them and they just fade away. The way I look at it is they have something good ...

Re: Julie's chicken keeping diary

All the others are going strong and although I dont really need anymore chickens from an egg point of view I bought two more today. One is...

Re: Time for a new run/enclosure how high though?

If you can make it a bit higher you might find will be much easier to clean - changed my life when I got a tall run - it's so much easier to clean. If you cant though 4ft high will be fine for the chickens. )t'

For people in Lancashire

Can recommend it if anyone is looking for a supplier. It's also next to Barton Grange Garden Centre so ret...

Re: Garden Hens Cheshire

I've bought hens from them in the past (near Pickmere) very nice people and lovely hens. Shame they're closing - I was going to get a couple of more from them this year.

Re: Endeavour - last night

I love knitting fair isle and find the history of knitting around the world fascinating. I think all the beautiful fine lace patterns are wonderful - one thing I've never had the patience for!

Re: Our new Shetland Sheepdog

She is beautiful - made me feel quite nostalgic for my grandads dog Spotty Maldoon whe looked just the same. Spent a large part of my childhood running round the Cheshire countryside with him :-D
