I clean out the poop from the coop (ooh that rhymes!) every day, and there was nothing unusual around. Also didn't see anything like that in the run.
Can anyone please tell me, do hens go a bit off colour just before they are about to start laying? One of my Point-of-Lay's was a bit down this morning, not wanting to come out of the coop, standing hunched up etc., but by this afternoon, she was looking much perkier and eating again. So, I'm wonder...
Hi again everyone, I need some advice please. I have had my hens for about 6 weeks now, and until this morning I thought everything was going OK. However, one of my Rhode Rocks didn't want to come out of the coop this morning, and is now standing hunched up and not eating, although she has drunk a l...

I say used to, as the first winter we had significant snowfall overnight, it collapsed under the weight and ruined my plants I had overwintered in it. Also, they are much more humid than a greenhouse. I can't co...
This year is the first time I've seen Hazels on the trees round here. I've not seen any squirrels this year and usually there are loads in and around our garden. A friend told me there is a virus affecting them. I'm surprised you're having trouble finding sloes, there's loads round here.
