Glad you got them home.
We had a problem a couple of weeks ago, we were blocked for a day or two. Then it was ok. We did a full system scan on the computer and everything was ok. We just put it down to a phone glitch

If you haven't already, start a compost heap. Chicken poo makes fantastic compost!
Chickens are a girl's best friend (though diamonds would be nice too!)

Especially mixed with grass clippings. The dry bedding takes up the moisture content of the grass and aerates it, so it heats up without going slimy.
