  1. Yesterday
  2. Well I was wrong - one has hatched!
  3. Oooh I love to see those! How exciting!
  4. A kidney would have been a pretty random guess - maybe useful to have in the freezer just in case 🤣 All your other guesses were right though - no @SeramaSilly I couldn’t resist - more fertile eggs 😁😁😁😁 I thought I’m more likely to be taking a couple of holidays next year so if not this year it could’ve been a long wait. And yes!! They are Barnevelder bantams! I finally got the uk Barnevelders Facebook page to let me in and I found a breeder straight away. They’re in the post now and should arrive tomorrow. So I’ll put them in the incubator on Wednesday and if they’ve survived the pos
  5. Isn’t it all great that we decided it must be hatching eggs? For all we know, @mullethunter bought a black market kidney! 😂😂
  6. Maybe I could send you one as a swap @Cat tails
  7. I wanted to like your post @mullethunter but apparently I have been over reacting to some other posts earlier and it won't let me like any more 🙄 so I highlighted you instead.
  8. I'm glad you like it - I will tell my dad 😊
  9. Oh my goodness, that is a huge box. How many eggs are hiding in there ?
  10. Ooooooo - you couldn't resist then!! My button quail should be hatching today - day 17 but I'm not convinced they're going to as I've had a hell of a job with the humidity!!
  11. They all look fantastic. We just put them in egg boxes in the fridge (at this the of year as it's rather hot). Bunk bed scores best: most eggs in smallest space.
  12. Mesh is definitely not small enough to keep wood chip in. Mesh is even big enough to let mice and rats in. But some old wooden boarding along the underside will do the trick. It has some rounded shape to the roof. My dad doesn’t have any issues with water collecting in the tarps. Think the door is narrower than the drawer of a Go. But you could easily take a tub/large bucket into the run and empty the drawer in that.
  13. I am considering the omlet WIR, but given the price have some niggling doubts....I currently have a run made of fence posts but needs some adjustments so am debating whether to modify this or splurge: - why does it not have a pitched roof? Will plastic tarp not just fill with water? I have metal tunnel runs which I put tarp over and in heavy rain ( Which seems to be all the time) the tarp has to be lifted to get excess water off or it pools - is the door narrower than the coop tray? I have a go and want to be Able to take the tray out of the run. Have read that this is not possible s
  14. Eggers!!! Barnevelder perhaps??
  15. What’s on its way to me?!
  16. I love the screaming of swifts too. I grew up in the countryside and we didn’t have them so I’d never really heard them until I moved to the small town I live in now. Now they really do herald summer - and always leave too early!!
  17. I have the beautiful Emma Bridgewater ‘Hen on Nest’
  18. Thanks to whoever sent me these lovely decorations! I shall eagerly await Christmas and pop them on the tree. Yummy chocolates too and a sweet blue tit card. Everybody’s gifts look super. Thanks to @Luvachickenfor organising.
  19. Oh wow @HarrisonFamily and @Cat tails those are beautiful gifts !!!! The postman came but didn't bring me anything I really love all the chicken material that things have been made from 😊
  20. Had myself a cup of tea and some apple cranberry oatmeal cake. Opened my box to find such lovely things! An amazing blue kitty with little legs that move. A colourful rainbow hanger. A beautiful notepad with guinea pigs on it. And a mystery pouch which contained the most amazing chicken bunting! I feel so spoiled! Thank you secret swappee!
