Re: The Zen of Hens

Not sure where the evidence behind their assertion that chicken keeping is on the rise is. I think that may have been true in say 2008 or even 2011 when they wrote similar articles but the anecdotal evidence would suggest that the boom in people taking it up is over, certainly if the British based f...

Re: Some people

Watching the full clip I though it was fair comment. If someone describing themselves as an expert consistently produces forecasts that are proved to be glaringly wide of the mark then only fools will continue to put any stock in what they have to say. A good example of this would be the IMF and Tre...

Re: Hospital break..................

Poor Val :( hope you heal up as quickly as possible. Did my tib and fib when I was 12 and had 6 temporary pins in it so you have my utmost sympathies, it hurt like hell. Just imagine what those arm muscles of yours will be like after a few weeks on crutches, no one will be messing with you.

The website not working is a bad sign as it suggests that they have stopp...

Re: What a relief!

Me neither, the biggest I've had previous to this was about 85g, this one looks more like a turkey egg.

What a relief!

It must have been for one of the Sussex to push her first egg of the season out. A whopping 100g, I can't close the egg box on it, will be interesting to see if it is a double yolker.

Re: Posted Eggs

It is a lottery. Personally I've had pretty good results, I've had 100% fertility and hatch rate before, though on one occasion it was as low as 20%. That time the breeder warned me of this as they had been testing fertility and gave me double the eggs to compensate. I've probably averaged out at ab...
