Re: Weed or plant?

If you like it does it matter which it is?
If you don't like it or don't want it there it's a weed. One definition of "weeds" is plants growing where they aren't wanted ... 8-)

The clip where he brings in a mucky old sock is brilliant just for the look on the females face. Don't think she was too keen on the frog either
Missed that - I'll have to watch it again!

Even weirder than meeting me, surely not :D
Yes, definitely weirder! The monkey in Marigold's clip has a horrible grin on its' face - enough to scare a newly hatched chick to death!

Re: barely conscious hen

Gosh I am surprised about the lethal dose for a hen being painful! When I had to have our elderly, blind, cat pts, she had an injection and died almost instantly.

Hate to be a party pooper but when my Welsummer hens were taken by mink they were dragged through 4" sheep netting. So I woulnd't be too sure about trellis with 4" holes keeping them in. I'm assuming you are trying to keep the hens in rather than predators out - that's another thing altogether.

A few flakes of snow and everyone panics! Still very cold but dry at the moment...
