Re: Too many chickens, too little time.

Beautiful birds, HenGen. I would like some, if you didn't live hundreds of miles and a lot of water away from me!
And I hope and expect you've got at least another 30 years for experimenting.

Re: stormy weather!!

However my copse is now leafless and ready for winter. Even so a neighbour was putting out cat food yesterday for a hedgehog. I read that as 'my corpse is now lifeless and ready for winter.' Glad a second reading was reassuring. Down here in Hampshire, our hedgehogs are still stoking up with the fo...

Re: Help working out breed please?

What a gloriously coloured bird. I bet that foxy-golden plumage looks fantastic in the sunlight.

Re: free range cockerel moving to small space

I totally agree with Rick. Three birds would need an absolute minimum of 6 sq. metres, more would be better. The smaller the run, the larger the space each bird would need, to make room for getting away if threatened, and also to accommodate equipment such as dustbath, feeder, drinker etc. I think t...

Re: good article on red mite control

Hi Chickenfan, I expect you're thinking of articles on the main Poultrykeeper website, see https://poultrykeeper.com/external-problems/ All the Forum threads about red mite are now in the Pests and Predators section, towards the bottom of the list on the Index page. Do let us know how you get on. I ...

Re: Help working out breed please?

How interesting! I hope you can get some photos on. If you have problems you could download the Tapatalk app, it's really easy to upload photos from there. They just come as a text link that people can click on.

Re: Not quite an Osprey

i like jackdaws, too. They used to be common round here, until gradually everyone got bird excluders on their chimney pots. On holiday in Lynmouth, having a cup of tea in an outdoor cafe, we spotted notices asking people not to feed the birds as it 'only encouraged the nasty jackdaws.' They are such...
