Happy Christmas to all of my forum friends

As I don't have any of your addresses, I've made a donation to Porchlight on your behalf, instead of sending cards. In the past I've bought Oxfam Unwrapped chickens, goats & mozzie nets, but this year I'm supporting the wonderful girls & guys who help the homeless people of Kent.

I hope you approve; if I was a bit more technologically savvy I'd add a link to Porchlight's website, but I'll have to let you look it up for yourselves.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and don't have to wait too long for freshly laid eggs. :)
Chickens are a girl's best friend (though diamonds would be nice too!)

That’s a lovely thing you’re doing. A charity well worth supporting.
It seems that there are more and more people, and animals, deserving of our help. What a world we have created!
And a joyous season to you all.
Eggs, pah, you can always rely on the pullets to keep you going through the winter.
Just remember the days are drawing out now and egg production from those trusty hens is only six weeks away.

Yes, I agree - well done. Icemaiden. As usual, we've supported Shelter and Crisis at Christmas - I can't imagine anything worse than being homeless, especially in winter. Here's the link to Porchlight - it looks a really good charity to support. https://www.porchlight.org.uk

A Happy Christmas and New Year to you all from me, as well. It's been another good year on the forum, with a lot of support from everybody, and all the various conversations - I've learned a lot and had some good laughs along the way as well. There's a lot of uncertainty ahead, as we go into 2019 - let's just keep sitting with our chickens for comfort, and then come on here to talk about everything with our friends.

Happy Christmas and a great 2019 to you all.

I have put out my little growers for next year 2 white purebred Leghorns and a Cream Legbar. Should do the trick. Have an egg a day now from
Gloria, my barred Plymouth Rock. She must have got the message!!

A very Happy Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year to you all. Our chosen charities this year were the British Legion and Salvation Army.

Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas Day and best wishes for 2019. May we all be egg bound from an abundance of them. 😁

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone. My posted cards supported Severn Hospice this year with a donation to the local, privately run, cat rescue.

And 'Bonnes fêtes' ou 'Bonne Noel et Joyeux Nouvelle Année' to all as well (sorry if the French is bad).

Charity stuff doesn't really happen much here, although we have seen a new Catholic charity shop in town- so maybe things are changing? Never seen anyone with a collection box either. As we are officially poor, to the extent that we get free energy-saving light bulbs, don't pay half the equivalent of Council Tax and the TV licence is free, we don't give much to charity. Although we did donate some food to the distribution centre and gave the Fire Brigade €10 for their benevolent fund (Christmas Party), after all, we want them to turn out if the house catches fire!
