Re: Hello all. Newbie from Nottinghamshire

Hi Marigold Well, we set up a small extended manmade run today and opened the door of their enclosed run. They took a while to realise they could just hop out, but I coaxed them with grass. Once out, they were digging like coal miners LOL. They didn't try to escape, nor fly off, so you were right ab...

Re: The Jokes section.

A man takes his children to the zoo. One of the children sees a loaf behind bars, sobbing. The child asks the zoo keeper "why is that loaf crying"?

Re: Hello all. Newbie from Nottinghamshire

Hi Icemaiden I think I may have droppped lucky with the two girls I got. If I go to the pen, they come straight over and if I make clucking noises, they answer back. I am so surprised how they interact, as I expected them to be very shy. Tonight, again, at 8.30pm they both walked up the ladder to be...

They're so funny to watch. Another egg this morning from one of them. Hubby us going to ...

Re: Hello all. Newbie from Nottinghamshire

I expected the worst, having googled information and looked on youtube, so was surprised that these girls were fully-feathered and chirpy. I collected them at 1pm yesterday (Saturday 12th May)...
