Where is everyone?

It's jolly quiet this week. Where's everyone gone? :-)04

raising chicks, garden, also grandchildren all takes time, but I do read PF every day, even if I have no comment.

I'd forgotten my login details.
Both my layers have died, so I've been buying hens. They're all too immature to lay yet. I'm upto 8 girls now, can't resist when I'm at the auction.

Auctions bigjim! I had to stop going to them because I couldn't resist impulse buying. I mean, who needs a trio of Chamois Campines?

Tell me about it. I went with my mate and we generally split what we buy as he generally only wants the odd bird. Whilst he went back to the car to get the pet carrier I'd gotten another hen. Couldn't help myself. Missed out on some rir. Next time! First year I've not hatched any eggs.

Pretty busy atm Icemaiden, having just moved we are trying to get things ready for Winter. Lots of things needed fixing as the last owner couldn't do anything practical and needed tradesmen for everything. Was going to post about the 'natural pecking order', as we have 4 TNN's truly free ranging and displaying surprising associations, but time is too short to answer any replies to the post.

Good to know that you're all still here. It's like a virtual community of friends. :-)99

Didn't realise you'd just moved again Chris? I thought you'd already found your permanent home?

Any chance of some pictures of your new birds, BigJim?
