Chickens may be CLASSED as livestock officially Looby, but remember, to many of our members they are much loved members of the family, so are thought of as PETS, and are treated as such.

I couldn't and wouldn't spend the amount of money on a chicken as say Lizzie and Aunt Sally have, but they love their birds and surely it is up to them what they do?

Ain't that true Grannie.

One of my hens has cost us 300 today  :ohmy:

OH went to the vets to collect some special feed for her because she's pooly.  On the way home he put petrol in the car - it's a diesel.  Luckily he didn't drive it  or it could have needed a new engine, it was just 200 to drain the tank, plus the price of a tank full of wasted fuel plus a tank full of fresh deisel.

There's more than just vets bill when you have pet hens  ::)

Anti siphon tank, and there's a complex pump and recirculating system to pre warm the fuel which has to be drained too.
