Re: Negleted chickens, or am i being to soft?

Tweetypie I wouldn't want to have 12 chickens in that hen house; from what I can see the perches are really close together also to some extent you get what you pay for as the wood may be quite thin. I agree, Margaid. Its the same size coop, more or less, I have for my 4 hens and there's no way I wo...

Re: Some People

Unfortunately, the whole world has gone mad with compensation claims on anything they can think of to make a buck! Its shocking. If the farmer had caught the culprit and slapped him, he would probably have ended up in court for assault, the culprit would probably claim compensation for stress and an...

Re: Lost a hen

I was surprised to learn that a hawk could take a hen! Now a couple of months ago, a hawk was sat on the fence where my hens live, so it could have easily taken one, I wonder why it didn't?

Re: New to Chickens - Advice please

Hi Tricky. My coop is similar to this and I have 4 hens who share it comfortably. My OH made a 20 foot square run with tall fencing. It has a large dustbath for nice weather and a small home made shelter with apex roof covered with thick plastic sheeting and soil inside to bathe in, to use in winter...

Re: Have you all been blown away?

Awww Marigold, I just watched that mini video, so innocent and lovely. Do you remember the "Clangers" with the soup dragon? Reminded me a little of those.

Re: Bluebell in winter?

Thank you so much. It looks very untidy at the moment, but I am gobsmacked that the lithodora I have planted at the front still keeps on flowering. The large conifers were already there when we moved, but I have built the small walls with old stones. I wanted a whole blue fountain of flowers cascadi...
