Re: Utility white Leghorns - 19 weeks old

Flighty could be an other word for their attitude to life. I've never had a pullet lay at 19 weeks, they are a joy to behold, I would call them cheerful girls. Alongside the Croads, 3 times their size and bulk they look so slender and elegant. Black and white always look good together I think. The C...

Utility white Leghorns - 19 weeks old

My two lovely girls have each presented me with an egg!

One is long and thin and the other is round and fat, the eggs, not the pullets. It was a lovely surprise. Love those girls to bits, they are so lively and noisy, but very pettable.

Re: Organic Pellets

My girls thrive on A&P layers pellets ordinary, I'm not too sure I always believe the organic bit, probably with A&P it is true, though.

I keep going with them as my girls are large and healthy, also my bantams, small and healthy.

Re: Weather

I've had frozen water for 3 days now! - poor me. This morning is a white out, everything covered in snow, and still currently snowing. Yesterday morning, squeezing between a tree trunk, the hut and the fence, I found a cache of large eggs, in a hollow in the ground behind the hut, and about Croad si...

The blue egg layer, another purebred is also growing apace she does appear a fearful creature though, very nervous and timid. I will persevere and ...

Silkies are bantams, but do they come in 2 sizes?

I believed that Silkies are one of the few true bantams, but I keep seeing ads for miniature Silkies in the ebay eggs for sale section. Can some very kind soul enlighten me on this subject please?
