Yesterday I saw one of the snakes, an intermediate about 2 foot long. So far so normal, however, I got a real fright because it was almost twice as wide as usual, with what looked like a mouse shaped meal inside it. Last night I had an unpleasant dream about snakes. Then today the cat suddenly narro...
Adorable! Are you planning on keeping them all, or just some, or none? Apologies if this has already been covered. On looks I'd go for the 2 gingers, but really I think the acid test is which one is the cheekiest, I want my cats to have personality. I know somebody who got 2 12 week old kittens. Sad...

I used to use them on my big orp girls, as the rooster is so big. I never had any problems (apart from getting them on!). Mine were plain heavy cream canvas and fitted pretty snugly. Sometimes there was only one hen wearing a saddle.

I worked in the City in 1992 (back office) and a more patrician environment you would never come across, old school ties and all manner of sexist nonsense was the norm, so obviously I didn't stay long. However, even there I was welcome to wear trousers to work. So what I hear you ask. Well, my next ...
Red legged partridge live in the forest close to us and I feel gently reassured they are there. We quite often see a pair, as we startle them on our walks. I am slightly concerned for them as although we don't have much hunting around here now, there is a fox. Anyway, todays spot were 2 carpenter be...

As a confirmed carnivore there have been 2 things I have refused to eat - veal and foie gras - for over 30 years because I lived in SW France in 1989 and saw the means of production. I know there are plenty of other horrible animal related practices, but these are my two, although I don't go as far ...
Thanks for the response Rick! At the moment we will just have to wait and see what happens. I get very nervous around poison and pets, no matter how well you think you have hidden it/put it under something heavy. I guess a bait trap might be the way to go. Just this week we heard a continual racket ...
If you remove the food source (I know someone who has rats because they feed the birds and there is spilt food which is a feast for pigeons and rats alike) will rats actually move away? I was wondering if they had become used to the food, and set up home giving birth to more rats, would they move on?
Its not you, HG, its everybody else! Lovely mix of birdies. The MO should be interesting, LF or bantam? When I left the UK they were quite well advanced in terms of being 'typey' for an orp, and I do like the colourway. Also, as I have never fulfilled my ambition of keeping JGs, what colour are you ...
