  1. Hi My 2 pekins are both broody, I have put duck eggs underneath them 1 will this be ok 2 i believe 28 days is the incubation 3 will i have to remove mother and ducklings from eglu and cube on hatching away ffrom the other chickens sorry for all the questions, this wasnt planned, i couldnt let the eggs just die Sarah
  2. hi i leave the eglu open, the 2 pekins live in there within the walk in run i have had to close the cube door because they would get up at 5ish sometimes and wake us and i was worried they would wake the neighbours they get let out at 7am now and seem happy enough, they are allowed all day freeranging so they are spoilt sarah
  3. hi i put pellets in the grub and make them up a bowl of porridge with the mash and warm water every morning, they love it. i use the wiggly wigglers mash with bokashi sarah
  4. hi i have 2 pekin bantams and a cat and i too was worried because the lavender pekin is tiny but they have been fine with the cat, she is frightened of them all. it is fair to say she is a bit of a scaredey cat though sarah
  5. ness what are shoesnow cats i am intrigued sarah
  6. hi dont worry you will love having them, i have had mine nearly 2 years now and touc wood no health problems they are low maintainance but you cant help spending time outside them as they are so funny and entertaining to watch. just try to relax and enjoy them, if you do have any concerns there is always someone here to answer questions however silly you might think they are. sarah
  7. thanks for your help indie i dont know where the boy found it or how long he had it, he did look for mum though. anyway as posted on chickens, the poor little thing died. thanks again sarah
  8. hi thanks for the replies, unfortunately it started flinging its head back then had a small fit and died. i wonder if it was unwell which is why it had been abandoned, anyway we did do our best but it was not meant to be sarah
  9. it is at a marina, there are lots of seaguls and mink about so i know it would not survive, the boy found it in the water on its own, it is very quiet, i have wrapped it in a soft cloth to keep it warm. i have got a broody lamp at home, so i thought i would put it under that, and get some chick crumbs, how would i get water into it. sarah
  10. i have kept it warm i will get some chick crumbs later sarah

  15. hi i dont think you will have anything to worry about they will be too busy wrecking your garden to even think about escaping i have never clipped my girls wings and they are out all day making a mess, i dont think they know there is any more world to explore over the fence good luck, it is very stressful the first freerange i remember, but sweetcorn always rules the day sarah
