Yesturday my hubbie went to collect the eggs and found the smallest egg I have ever seen! I spent all evening worrying about the girls. And couldn't connect to the internet all last night! Phew what a relief, I managed to get onto the forum now to find out what was the cause of this tiny egg. You kn...
It must be our LS plucking again then. I have sudocreamed, Violet sprayed and anti fether peck sprayed today. Going to buy some more mealworms today and re started the poultry spice. If that dosn't work, i'm going to have to work out how to sperate the culprit and perhaps put her with our bluebell w...
Hello everyone, Violet my columbian blacktail has some feathers missing from her wings. Our light sussex is a feather plucker, but I havn't seen her picking on Violet. Could she be going into a molt?

Fortunatly we replaced the lawn (well more weed than grass) a few years ago with chippings. The girls love digging huge holes in it when they free range and all I do when they are back in their Walk-in-Run is go around with a rake to level it back again. I hose it down on a reg basis as well. I used...
