    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Very timid?

    Just purchased 4 POL....2 white Sussex, 2 copper Marian's. Bought from a local breeder, so more a business than pets. Had them just over a week now, very timid so not yet feeding from my hand, (as I have experienced in past)..they tend to move back when my hand advances with some feed...are they still getting used to me, they are very unsure...just a matter of time??
  2. Expecting eggs?

    Collected 4 POL a few days ago. Is there a settllng in period before they start laying?.....also how often should I add AC vinegar to their drinking water..thanks
  3. Just purchased 4 POL.... Roughly how many grams of feed should I be giving per hen? Using Pellets.
  4. Firstly I am sure this question has been asked many a time so I apologise. Just put together a Cube with 4m run on grass. Not yet chosen the girls. I know the grass will not last too long. On reading, I do like the description of Aubiose, being easily compostable (a bonus) I guess Easichick is similar...Could I use Aubiose (or either) in nest box, or should I use something softer?....thoughts please...
  5. I have found decent ones in QD...with eyelets!!
  6. Our first chickens are home!

    Lovely looking trio!.. just put together a second hand Cube...just need the chooks...plan to get these when back off holiday.
  7. Thinking of getting a few bantams. Would possibly like a Bant cockerel. I also have neighbours. Volume wise can I expect as much as a standard cockerel. Are they generally a quieter bird?
  8. I'm looking for either the ''Classic'or ''Go'.... don't mind traveling a little way. Thanks.
