  1. Hey Everyone, I found out today that she is a girl. So I am happy to say I don’t have another rooster 🤣!

  2. My second jab booked next week! Then I gather we oldies are having a booster in the autumn. Fine by me. Anything to get back to normal

  5. I love Devon and Cornwall but don't want to come on holiday this year. When we've been in the past, it is usually quite busy, but add that amount to all the other people who want to come because they can't go abroad and it is just too much. I feel safest at home and at school where I work.

  6. I would pop them in the Go Up when you get them, with the door open into the run, so that they might know where to go to bed later once they have come out. Make sure they have plenty of food and water. Leave them to investigate their new home - they will come out eventually. You will need to leave them to get to know where their surroundings are for about a week - then you can let them potter round the garden. Obviously spend time in their run and handle them when you can. You won't get much done when you first start watching them - make sure you have lots of cups of tea and a comfy chair. I think one of the things people are most shocked about is the amount of poop. Keeping chickens is a bit like learning as you go along. I've had chickens 12 years now and still needed advice yesterday. Lots of us on here like seeing photos so post some when you get your chicks

  8. @Beantree many of the local centres are open for the over 55 after the health minister announcement and are booking on doctolib or keldoc. I had my first jab at the pharmacy yesterday it was the AstraZeneca and my second is booked for 1st July, I turned 51 this week with no comorbidities and the pharmacist was happy to give me the vaccine and basically said that the medication I take for my migraines has far worse side effects. He also pointed out that many people who worry about the vaccine never worry when the drink alcohol, maybe taken banned drugs in the past or even taking other prescription medication as these can also cause reactions and effects.

  9. Good morning. I took her to a vet who specialises in poultry ( a 50 minute journey each way) He was brilliant. He popped it back but it did come out again when we got home. Unfortunately she has an infection but he gave her a dose of steroids and anti-inflammatory meds and antibiotics. I have to give her Baytril drops once a day for 10 days and use an ointment twice a day. Interestingly the ointment is Isaderm, used for dogs. She looks fine but has to be kept away from the others in case of pecking. I have two walk in runs at the moment so no problem there. But can’t use her eggs for 10 + 28 days. After that she had better earn her keep!

  10. A tail would help with my balance which seems to be getting worse and worse. lol I had the Pfizer jab, so I wasn't caught up in the AZ drama... although for all I know, that one might be worse. I'm just pleased that I've had it - and so quickly. Never been so pleased to be considered a key worker!! The only reaction I had to the second jab is the fact the nurse didn't mess about with that needle - she meant business. It felt a bit sore for a couple of hours, but other than that, completely fine.

  11. Completely agree, mullethunter. I live by a tourist spot on the River Thames and find myself unable to walk there as it’s so crowded. So your situation must be 100 times worse. Stay safe

  12. Well. Four days on from the rules being relaxed to allow overnight stays and Cornwall is just completely overrun already 😔 I completely understand why people want to come here - it’s just that far too many do.

  13. I guess a tail would be better than a blood clot - you'd certainly make more money from it! Glad to hear you are now fully protected (although my theory is that we'll all be having yearly boosters like we do with the flu jab now!)

  14. Well, it's official: I am all vaccinated as of yesterday, both doses. Pleased to report that I've had literally no side effect whatsoever. Still waiting for my superpower to develop... or possibly a tail to help with my balance!

  15. I’m sorry to hear Peggy is feeling poorly. I hate it when they just look miserable and you know it’s more than likely that the vet won’t be able to tell what’s wrong even though something clearly is. I’d do the same as you are though and take her anyway - it’s worth a try. I would definitely give her some nutridrops. And I would just monitor her really closely to make sure she is eating but even more importantly drinking. Tempt her with something treaty if you think she might not be. My Polly was very poorly this week - I think she was either stung or punctured by a poisonous thorn - I thought we were going to lose her but I managed to tempt her into eating some scrambled egg (just egg, no milk) just to keep something going in, and now she’s absolutely fine.

  16. Hi Girly. My 8 year old Wyandotte had a prolapse a couple of weeks ago. I tried and failed to get it to stay back in - it would go in but wouldn’t stay for more than a couple of seconds. I kept it as clean as I could but really couldn’t get it to stay in so after about 24 hrs (during which time she laid a slightly larger than normal egg which made it neither better nor worse) I took her to the vet. He put it back in and it has stayed. She was completely back to normal as if nothing had happened within about half a day! That was 9 days ago. She hasn’t laid an egg since then - I guess that will be the real test.

  17. Sugar can help as an astringent and hold it in for a few minutes. If it keeps popping out I’d give your vet a call, she may need some anti inflammatory or possibly a stitch to keep it in.

  18. Just so adorable - I hope it is a girl so you can keep her.
