Re: I have a chickalick!!

You'd be able to hear them moving around or trying to pip...you can hear tapping and scratching...but if they're a lot lighter chances are she's (hopefully a she) going to be an only chick. Yeah I can't hear anything, no movement or anything, tbh I'm surprised even one has hatched, she got off them...

Re: I have a chickalick!!

Oh bless...well if she has the one she has the one ...she will be happy because she has it...chances are if the others don't hatch within the next day she'll get off them anyway. Anyway you can get them to your ear and see if you can hear anything (because you can if they are viable at that age). M...

eeek i hear cheeping!

Day 21 just for home from work and I heard cheeping! Lifted Martha hen up to have a look as she's sat on the eggs and there are no chicks and no pippings, couldn't even tell you which egg it had come from, I lifted then up individually and had a look but no joy, so I just sat here back on them - I'v...

day 20 (ish) of hatching (unsure)

Well Martha is a day 20, BUT we've had issues she's got of then before now, they've gone cold, then she's got back on them, she keeps kicking one out and then putting it back under her.....i don't know whether they'll hatch or not because she's got off them a couple of times..... Any ideas??

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

Well done manda. I have undoubtedly potty on this week as I've not been to the gym and have eaten rubbish all because I have yet another ear infection and swollen tonsils. More antibiotics more sleep than usual and I decided it was best interest to not go to the gym {cry} xx

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

What a nice lady you are, Helen! That's a lovely way to put it. I think it's down to habits and rituals very tied into 'what we always do' at the weekend, ergo it's not only my own behaviour I need to change. Also stress and social eating. Normal life, really, but if I'd lost 4lbs every week instea...

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

Lots of exercise boosmummy! Maybe it is the time of year, I am craving chocolate too and gave in a few times recently. Am getting fed up with myself as I have gained about 4lb over the last few weeks, not a lot but I am scared it is a slippery slope..... 4lbs is easy to put on and not so easy to ge...

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

I'm so better thanks. I got to the gym on Saturday did some weights and I went tonight and did 40 lengths a 20m pool by my reckoning that's half a mile! I'm still at the same weight every week of 14s7lbs but I'm losing the inches. I need to pull my finger out and eat properly unlike today's 10 choco...

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

I've been rubbish this week, I've not eaten properly or gone to the gym because I have sinusitis and vertigo! It started a week last Sunday, ignored it, and then on Sunday gone, I was in so much pain I went to the emergency doctor. Monday was spent in bed, Tuesday I did my half a day at work, annual...
