I do. In fact ‘you get nothing in this game for two in a bed’ became a rather risqué saying back in the day!

Re: Books

I looked as well rick and was surprised at the price. Similarly a CD by Gunhild Carling. There seems no logic to it. DVDs are ridiculously cheap. Yet other things seem really expensive.

Re: Mating Orpingtons

Thanks for your insights. Just a whim thinking about some possible hatchlings in 2022. Was thinking of Black Silkie x Black Orpington chicks in 2023 but makes more sense to go Black Silkie x Black Australorp. A few years back visited a breeder who had a few Gold Silkie x Buff Orpington wandering abo...

Mating Orpingtons

I seem to remember reading years ago that due to their fluffy ‘bums’ Orpington’s should have their feathers and fluff trimmed to ensure fertile eggs are laid. Anyone have any knowledge or experience of this?

Re: Cheery Pics

I'm just going to keep looking for that idyllic little house with an acre or so, just to keep more hens 😉 and not have to suffer hearing a ball being kicked against a fence several months of the year. I don't like neighbours. Moving here when I remarried has been the worst move. I just can't settle...

Re: Cheery Pics

Chesterfield! You’d know Jason Statham then. 😀 The decision where to spend our declining years, once we’re free of wage slavery, is a tricky one. For me the increasing gentrification of rural England was an incentive to move. For every gnarly old farmer there are Tristram and Penelope with a pony fo...

Re: Hello from Sheffield!

Hi Lea and welcome from Scotland. I know Sheffield quite well because I used to live in the Hope Valley.
Anything you need to know we’ll try and help.

Re: Cheery Pics

4CCE64C9-785E-4DAD-BB21-FB1B1DF0F75C.png Just booked one of these for next year. It was developed in Hope Valley, the place I lived for most of my adult life. Must be getting sentimental in my old age! The breed is called the Whitefaced Woodland. That's one heck of a handsome dude, Hen Gen. What ma...
