Re: The value of poo.

We see loads of signs in newsagents for "£1 a bag, pick it yourself" horse manure, we also have a small local shop that buys veg and fruit from the allotments to sell outside is summer. You could try either of these, or your local allotments might be happy to have it, or maybe even a car boot sale?

Re: Bald Hen

Not the expert in any respect, but best guesses would be that she's either moulting (are there loads of feathers strewn around the pen or house), she's broody and pulled them out to better get skin contact with eggs (sounds doubtful if she's running about), or one of the other hens has pulled them o...

Re: Airedale and Chickens

I agree with Marigold, when I got my girls (although my dog is 7) I kept him on the lead and made him sit in the grass with us whilst the girls wandered the garden. If he got interested, a shap command and a tug of the lead stopped him. He's now (1 year on) able to be left in the garden with them qu...

Re: those all black chickens

When I think of you and you chooks karminski, I imagine you with an allotment the size of a football pitch, with sentries carrying guns marching around the outside to protect a huuuuge number of every single type of chicken you can get and more :D :D

Re: Baby wobbly on feet

Well, she's still here :) Underweight and weak, but back her back in her box tonight in the spare room and added her sisters (been outside for today as at work and they couldn't be trusted indoors). Hoping there is no bullying when they all go outside in the morning.
She's such a brave little fighter

Re: Chicken speak

Nancy gives off a giant BAAAWK if I seperate her from the others. Sounds very much like a huge protest call. I also love the wonderful purr they give out when they're happy. Mine have all spent the day in the kitchen and as soon as the radiator kicks in behind their box, they purr away to each other...

Re: Baby wobbly on feet

She made it :) Quiet, but eating breakast of warm mash in her crate and burbling away to me. Seems no signs of the wobbles so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for hypothermia...

Re: Baby wobbly on feet

Thanks guys, just checked on her and she seems ok, big black fluffy ball. Husband now laughing that bets are off at work due to everyone saying they'd take his place upstairs before long :D I'm presuming that they don't need to perch in their boxes? I've got them in plastic crates with a towel drape...
