Re: I need to rehome my girls

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...

I need to rehome my girls

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...

Re: My ex Bat Girls.....Pictures..

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 don't have any ex bats just now but they do have big personality's and it is surprising how trusting they are. Look fo...

Re: Since Lizzie died ten days since

Aww Spreckly what a hard decision. I'm sure you will do what's best for Ruby. You're right chicken keeping is harder in the winter, I'm dreading it brrrrrr!

Re: What type of other Hen to mix with my ex bats ?

Hi CD, if you are planning to get more hens, personally I'd advise you do it sooner rather than later before they settle into a well established group, introductions are likely to be smoother if all hens aren't too familiar with one another yet. I'd be prepared to introduce the new girls gradually b...

Oooh, seems I am turning into Victor Meldrew Tell us which bits irritated you Helen, I lime to hear other people's perspe...

get your dog to stand on a chair & pee high up on the fence, fox will think he's a huge dog then!

Re: Looking for Mr.Fox

Thanks for that Richard...I think {rofwl} 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!

Re: Visit From Foxy

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 ...
