Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Hello Amber (and everyone). It is horrible not knowing what to do for the best (been in this situation many times with chickens, cats and dogs). At the end of the day, we have to do what we feel is right for our animals and although a hard decision (so very heartbreaking I know) we have to put the a...

Re: horse

I totally agree with your comments Ilona. It is your lifestyle and what you can afford. I love your comment about living with cats and dogs not no other humans - I feel exactly the same!

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Thanks Karen, I am going to look into how to post photo's (photo bucket account) as you have advised. Glad your girls are behaving well. Mary, Rose and Violet are doing OK with lock-down as well. They are used to free ranging in the garden at the weekends, when we are with them. They know their rout...

Re: horse

Wow Bob, what an interesting thread. Glad that the horse is not being neglected. Sounds as though SWMBO knows a thing about keeping horses. If it is something that she really wants I am sure you will help her all you can. Looks like you have even more discussing to do. I definitely think a small hol...

Re: Louise's Chicken Diary

Hello Karen and Kitty (and all). Thank you for the lovely welcome, much appreciated. Lily who we lost last year was our lap-sitter - she was so full of character and had to do absolutely everything with you. You could not bend down without her jumping onto your shoulder. Mary is certainly top hen no...

Louise's Chicken Diary

Hi everyone. I have been threatening to start a diary for a long time, so here we go. It all started about 5 years ago when I acquired a chicken coop from a friend. Had always wanted to keep chickens so did as much research and reading up as I could. I started with 3 warren girls (Mabel, Ruby and De...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Hi Bob. Yes I totally agree with you, the weather here is absolutely awful. My run has a cover over, but rain still leaks in and it has turned into a mud bath. Getting really fed up with all the mud now!! Roll on some drier weather. Glad everyone seems to be coping with the lock-down, although obvio...

Re: Backyard poultry keepers survey

Hi all, I to was concerned about taking part in this survey. I did indeed start it, but wondered if it was legit and didn't feel comfortable sending off my answers. Looks like it has been OK'd by Manda (thanks for the research), so might try again. Like so many others on this forum, I am keen to exp...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Thank you for your lovely welcome and your instructions (not very good with these things, but going to give it a go very soon). Bob - I am coping OK at the moment with regard to the Flu scare. My three girls have a run that is fairly large to keep wild birds out and them in. When I am at home at the...

Sorry if this post is in the wrong place, just finding out about how to do things here. Just wanted to say that I have enjoyed your diaries so very much for such a lon...
