A Happy Birthday! Another year gone and hopefully another year forward full of the joys of chickens. )t'
I know what you mean when you say about not having picked up a chicken.When we had our first 3 girls they were delivered and i had never held a chicken and had my eldest Grandaughter to help for moral support..
4 lovely girls~~ Clover, the oldie and top chick Bonnie second in command .new girls Bluebell and Blossom.
2 lovely new girls 19-01-2015~~ Chelsea and Ruby.
Eva , Florry , Poppy ,Annie and Rosie R.I.P

Elsie the top girl. Quite a few months ago she nicked her vent on something and it bled so I cleaned it up and put a bit of gentian violet on. When I went on hols my neighbour saw blood over her and panicked, he sprayed her lots but the blood had come from Amanda-Jaybe's comb when she had been pecked when she went broody and would not vacate the nest! No idea why it has turned pink >coc<

I'll try and get this over with now, why have chickens! I have realised all the photos I have of older girls are on my old phone and cannot find thingy to put them on my pc }hairout{ They then addd 2 golden flecked girls and went on hols the nextday. Well you can imagine, I wont go into great details but one girl was eaten when I went to check why there was so much npise, their son was looking after them but I found they had no water, slices of white bread chucked in and the newbie was being terrorised! I locked the new girl in the coop with water and food and fed and watered the other ones unfortunately I was off for 3 nights and when I came home the situation was the same. The other girls had been laying and sleeping in the run. I was so lucky to be telling a customer I met in a shop who knew of a lady who took in any birds. She came and took away the newbie but she died within a week as she had had no nourishment. I wont go into any other deaths I knew nothing about them so was useless. They came back a year later with 2 rangers who were suffering the same fate as the other poor souls and yes they were away but i was in charge so then I went out got a run and kidnapped them when they got home they replaced them with 2 rhode stars Rhoda and Brenda who they monitored! Rhoda and Brenda I took up the vets yes they were eggbound but a few months apart.Anyhow then there was Stacey left from the first lot and of course Silkiebabe plus 2 silver sussex Millie and Lucy,2 amber stars Amber and Star and a bluebelle Bella(they named them this time)Stacey passed on this year and later Bella. All happy in the run with the 5 remaining cause I keep a very firm eye on them and I found Lucky Ducky(yes a duck) a new home when she was hurting the ladies. So sorry cmon wake up! the 2 rangers became my Alice and Abbie on Sept 21st 2008 and I found this site )t' I will have to put picks in seperate posts cause I am stupid +f+
