Re: Cheery Pics

No decision yet on the kittens although if I keep them all I will then have 10 cats! I'll wait and see whether any of them has a strong bond with mum or develop a strong bond with me. Lily lets me pick them up and pet them for no more than a minute. This morning I moved them into a different "enclos...

Re: Cheery Pics

Expensive, but then I suppose they are a lot bigger then the feathered variety. £1 a brace, in the feather here in season. I don't bother plucking etc, just remove the breast fillets and the legs. Pity none of the cats seem to like pheasant, at the moment the kittens still just want mum. Taken yeste...

Re: Has the world gone mad or am I just out of touch?

I can see now that I jumped in on the headline without properly getting to grips with your point Margaid. Clearly there are socially appropriate ways to dress and some forms of self expression send intended, or unintended, messages of various kinds. Its all about making assumptions about others bas...

Re: Chicken saddles/aprons

I think from the point of view of the poultry saddle the fact that chickens are tetrochromatic is probably the mot relevant. If the material is "flowery and colourful" to a human it will look even more so to the other birds, so she will look like she has some huge strange mass on her back. If there ...

Re: Chicken saddles/aprons

I fitted a plan cream one to one of my Welsummers - I had seven other hens and there was no problem.

Re: Cheery Pics

:lol: :lol: Reminds me of all the folk tales where the faeries take the baby and leave a changeling! Five kittens are much easier to cope with than five babies!!!!! Kittens manage to condense into about 8 weeks what humans take 2 years to do. They are still, at 3 weeks old, at the crawling sometimes...
