Re: karen's chicken diary

Lovely to hear that The Twins have settled in well Karen. They do sound lovely little characters. Aren't they all so different with their individual personalities? Hope you get the red mite situation under control - there's always something going on with this chicken keeping lark. I don't really kno...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

RIP Olive - my chief bug hunter. Woke up this morning to find my little Olive had passed away. She was not at all good yesterday and I intended to take her to the vets this morning to have her PTS. So, so sad, but she went in her own time at home without any trauma to the vets and in spite of her co...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your blue and yellow ringed hen Bob. Always so sad but you said she was a good age and what a wonderful life you would have given her with your devotion and caring for your animals. Your neighbour sounds like a very unreasonable person. Keep calm and carry on. We have...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Glad you have still got the ducks Bob. Do you intend to keep them or are you still looking to re-home? I know exactly what you mean about work. Been furloughed now for 13 weeks and don't want to go back!! The longer I am at home the harder it will be. I too am enjoying the time in the garden with my...
