I thought I'd update about my girls who are now with Ace and say a heartfelt thank you to Ace for taking them. They have been gone a few weeks now and have been a big miss in my life. However I am so pleased they have gone to Ace who is so caring about her hens who are so special to her. Thank you t...
Good news for my girls, Ace is taking them and her friend is going to have the two Silkies. I am so pleased Ace responded as I know how she cares for her girls. We will let you know when they move to their new home. Thanks again Ace it's a weight off my mind, I will be sad to see them go but very ha...
Hi, I'm moving home and sadly I can't take the hens with me; I need a good home for them. I have two hybrids (a Rhode rock and an Amber) 2 black Silkies; 2 Pekins(1 lavender and one millefluer). All of the hens have laid all summer and the hybrids are still laying every day. I'm currently getting ab...
Glad you got your new girls, they all look very happy together. I think most chicken keepers will agree you never stop tweaking their home....usually making it bigger, taller etc!

I'd be prepared to introduce the new girls gradually b...
It was interesting although I liked some of them much more than others! Also the programme as a whole I really enjoyed, but there were bits/things said that really irritated me. Oooh, seems I am turning into Victor Meldrew Tell us which bits irritated you Helen, I lime to hear other people's perspe...
Thanks for that Richard...I think Seriously though a fox has been snooping around my girls (I've posted about it in chicken keeping) and he made a determined effort to dig his way in last night, there is always a chance they are there waiting for us to take our eye off the ball!
How scary for you! Its very interesting to hear exactly how it tried to get in, its so helpful to us all when we try & fortify our runs! This proves how vital the anti dig part is, I shall check mine tomorrow & make sure its fastened down properly & there's no gaps. I've often wondered ...
