  1. Update on chicks!! 🐣 So we only hatched 4 chicks and unfortunately after 3 days our little early hatcher died…..I’m unsure what happened but I think it was killed. Wether that was by mother hen or somehow another chicken got close to the run and pecked it through the mesh, I really don’t know but I found it with blood in its mouth. But nearly 3 weeks on and on a much brighter note, we have 3 beautiful growing very quickly little chicks! And mama hen has now left the confines on her small run and is venturing out with all the other chickens and goats! And they are all lovely with the chicks 🥰 Although I don’t think any of them would dare mess with Marge 🤣 Here’s some pictures….look how big my first hatch of Appenzellers are! They are nearly 13 weeks old and I’ve just sold one of the 3 boys. Picture is of all 3 boys just before the one went to his new home

  2. Great idea - count me in as long as I don't have to cook it THEN send it 😉

  5. 7 weeks might be a tad young to go out. They probably will have some trouble going up the stairs. They don’t need heat and such anymore, but will have some trouble realising the house is where you sleep and getting up the ladder. So do be prepared having to crawl into the run to fish them out and put them into the house at night.

  6. Some of you mentioned that you might like to do a recipe swap for the August Bank holiday. It will be very similar to the Christmas swap we have, but shouldn't take as long, and just needs a recipe you think someone might like to try. All recipes will need to arrive before the 27th August so that we all have them ready to open on the Bank Holiday Monday. I'm sure it is obvious, but there isn't any post on Bank Holidays. You will need to PM me your names and addresses by 8th August if you would like to join in. On the list so far is me, Luvachicken Cat tails Soapdragon Mullethunter HarrisonFamily

  7. I would think that she’s just stopped laying and is about to moult. That was also explain the ‘dry’ comb.

  10. We have just introduced our youngest ones to the Cube. They had already gone to bed in their own house, but just before it got dark we popped them in with our lone, older hen. We did this for a couple of nights and then took their house away so they could only go to bed in the Cube. It has worked out fine so far.

  11. Hi all thanks for your comments. Sandy is Pheobe's 3rd friend so I think she is just a robust chicken! Had a few scares over the years but lucky to have a vet who also has chickens and is always willing to try something. They make me smile everyday whether relaxing or up to mischief!

  12. All is going very well with the chicks! Little early hatcher is growing and doing very well 🥰 Gave the other 6 eggs to my broody hen for her to hatch herself and so far she’s done amazingly! 2 more have hatched with her and another had just pipped. Got 3 left with nothing yet but it’s still early. So then decided to give her the little one. She accepted it straight away!! Here are some pictures to gush over 😅🥰 One in my hand is the little one. Doesn’t actually look that little when its next to his siblings. p.s please excuse my nail polish 😅 only just spent £25 on them last week and already I’ve chipped them 🙈 don’t tell my husband! 🤣
