Re: Post holiday behavioural changes

Just one question Tweetypie. Are the perches higher than the nest boxes? Sorry if this seems an obvious question but hens invariably go to the highest place they can to sleep. Hi Hen-Gen - sorry for late reply - the nest box is lower than the perch. Ive been blocking off the nestbox at night and OH...

Re: Weather

But to lighten the mood even further, a shower cap was found on a bus this morning with pink hearts all over it, so I am wearing it whilst controlling For those of you who have met me or seen my pic on the forum, you can imagine it.

Re: Weather

Just to lighten the mood, (or lower the tone), being in the middle of the menopause, I don't feel the cold so much these days. Every cloud....😀

Re: Hoopoe

I have just recorded the sighting on www.birdwatching.co.uk. I sent the video footage to RSPB via Facebook app, too. I am still shocked. I am just sooooo gutted that I dont have a decent camera and also wish I had taken a photo, rather than video, as the footage is terrible. It looked so clumsy in f...

Hoopoe

This is no word of a lie but whilst out walking today I saw a Hoopoe!! I have only seen them in photo's or my RSPB magazine, but they are so amazingly distinctive. It was more than 50 metres away, so my phone footage was useless. I decided to video it instead of taking a photo, but it wasn't close e...

Re: Post holiday behavioural changes

Thank you Marigold, I have just picked up your post and will try putting them on their perch at dusk, starting tomorrow. That's a great idea. I also took out some of the aubiose which is on the coop floor, as it's quite deep, so they might be laying there as previously I only had it around the edges...

Post holiday behavioural changes

Since my hens came back from their 10 day break with another hen keeper, whilst hubby and me were on holiday, they have not been the same. This is not the same hen hotel I usually send them to, as she was unavailable on those dates. They have been home now for almost 2 weeks. They are all in a moult...

Re: Izzie, Skye and Morag,

Beautiful hens and equally beautiful scenery. My bluebell is going through a moult so looks terrible at the moment. She's the quietest of my hens. I also have the same feeders as you, too. :-)
