Guess what I came home to today....
« on: July 08, 2010, 22:32 »
As you all may know, I lost one of my girls to, I think was sour crop.

We tried all 'home' remedies but it was too late  :(

BUT...

Last night I came home to...




These girls... 

OH didn't want me miserable. I noticed she'd posted questions on here on what to do etc..
And so decided to get a replacement (er, or two  :blink:)

What a lovely thing to do  :happy:
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

1 Penine Black Tail

And 1 Black Rock

The chickens are taking over!.... What next, the world???  :lol:

Oh, and I better ask now they're here as I know they're gonna be spoiled.  ::)

What is a healthy weight of a chook??

Our first chooks will be about 22 weeks old now, and the new arrivals are 12 weeks old.

I don't want 'chunky' chooks. (they don't lay as I.ve been told)  ::) ::)

Oh they are beautiful and knows to roost too!
When I die I will slide in sideways, a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming, "Whooo hooo!  What a ride!" as life is to be enjoyed to the fullest!

Just checking them tonight, they're getting a bit bullied off our Goldline mainly, the others have had a peck yesterday but they don't now, just the Goldline!  :(

Do you think it'll pass, or should I get some anti-pecking stuff??
