Re: Martha's done it again!

It just amazes me how fast they are growing up! Like you said Marigold they look older than 12 days (well 16 days now) and yet they are still babies! And you realise that when you find them still trying to fit under Martha's wings at nap time 😂😂 still too young to go in a separate enclosure, but rap...

Re: Martha's done it again!

Just a quick update on the chicks... Well they already don't look like chicks but sure behave like chicks still, constantly in their mother's wings lol. https://youtu.be/8zobeeKn1os Penny has been sat on eggs too for a couple days - well Martha and the muffins were in the nest this evening actually ...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

It would seem the heat was a factor in Peckford long winded recovery... Up to last Saturday / Sunday he couldn't jump still and so he was stopping outside of the coop unless we'd give him a lift in... Which he seemed quite happy to get so that he was with the girls. Since Monday he's joined them on ...

Re: Eggless wonders

Very interesting thread I must say as I was also wondering about the hot weather and much lower egg production... We have also had an egg with no shell some few weeks ago - though nothing quite like the above photos... Unfortunately I can't offer any insights as I was speechless when I saw it... I h...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Thank you Shadrach.
This looks interesting but you can't get it from any UK suppliers... Which raises a whole of questions...
However that's a vood point worthy of more research.

Re: Martha's done it again!

Oh and... If anyone is interested, these will have to go to a different home because there's no room at the inn for another 4 fully grown CPQ.

Re: Martha's done it again!

Also.... She was sat on 22 eggs!!! (Includeing the chicks). I have removed them now because she is very busy with the four chicks already, and simply isn't interested in the rest of the eggs, in fact she's using the other hut now. I couldn't resist and check the eggs I had removed, and they were all...

Re: Martha's done it again!

The log cabin gives them more space in a way... They love gathering on top and walking on it... I have closed the back of the smallest part it makes more private and better for nesting... None of the other eggs are going to hatch so I will remove them. I had to rescue one of them twice today. He'd c...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Oh wow... So much catching up to do on this thread!! Only two of them show the same symptoms (snuffly and on the weak ish side when it comes to jumping up... ). Peckford and Dodo (one of the new girls). Doris and Booboo didn't show any of the symptoms before they died, and only Booboo was on the sle...
