    Chatty Chicken
  1. So sorry to hear this news and wish Rosie a very speedy recovery. Sounds like she is being very brave x
  2. Just a quick piggie update. She is doing so well and is loving being an indoors pig. She is still living in the Lounge and has become an avid TV watcher. Every time someone chops something in the kitchen she squeals so loud we have to give her some of any fruit or veg we are chopping and she can count up to 4 now as every evening when we go to bed she has 4 white chocolate buttons. She knows exactly how many 4 is! She gets such a lot of fuss and she is a different Pig, she was always the quiet shy one when she was with the group. Not any more!
  3. I dont post much these days but often pop in to the nesting box and have a quick scan through. From my point of view there are a number of reasons I dont come on here much. When I first joined I was reasonably new to Chicken Keeping so sucked up everything I could regards tips and advice. A lot of the friends I made have migrated to Facebook and we have a 'thing' going on over there and keep in touch this way and Im probably busier now than I was 5 years ago. You do tend to see the same subjects coming around again when you have been here for a bit Those Forum members who endlessly answe
  4. Sheila, that's a lovely post. She would always go that extra mile to help. Justine's funeral is taking place on Friday 6th July in Widnes at 11am. PM me if anyone needs any more details. Ian has asked me to walk with her. I'm sure lots of you will be thinking of her on the day so I'll take you all with me 'virtualy'
  5. Hi all. Ian has been in touch and he has read this thread with your tributes to Justine. He asked me to pass on his thanks to you all for your lovely comments made and that they had met some lovely people via the forum.
  6. Hi all, I dont get on here much these days but did just log on wondering if anyone had put up a posting to let all the 'older' forum members know that Justine had sadly passed away. Im sure she wouldnt mind too much that she was remembered as sometimes a more controversial poster on this forum. Its lovely to read that so many of you were also touched by her kindness and enjoyed reading her blog, musings and use her recipes. Her Marfans meant she did tire and hence found the forum and facebook a great diversion and enjoyed banter with us all on the net. She was a great friend and I know no one
  7. This is not her first outing on tv. I happened to catch a bit of the programme 'Snog, Marry, Avoid' some while ago. She was on that. She looked nice when they gave her a makeover but then she went straight back to being a Geisha girl. Obviously keen to be on TV, whatever.
  8. I think the result was his Mum ruined it for him. He is 16 now. I think I might ask him later and see if he remembers
  9. This thread has made me laugh. Just the usual mouldy lunch for me in my kids bags. However, I pulled out the bottom draw in my sons room once as it was stuck and found a number of mouldy items stuck to the carpet. I cleared it up and questioned my son when he got home from school (he was about 6 or 7 ish at the time) only to be told it was a 'Mould Farm' and an experiment to see how long different things took to go mouldy I used to have a 'corpse collection' when I was about this age. It was a long thin box which had a bracelet in and in it I had a dead butterfly, a moth, a bee, a wasp,
  10. Claire Hun, I'm so sorry. I haven't really got any advice for you other than to echo what others have said that you must look after yourself and make sure you eat. Take care. Hugs from me too x
  11. Thankyou for the advice. I have been keeping her in as it's gone blummin cold here over the last week. I'll start putting her out again when the weather gets better. She seems to have settled into indoor living and looks happy and healthy. I'm still really pleased with her progress and she seems her normal self. I was trying to look at rehoming without getting emotional about it on my part. Obviously I want to keep her and was only looking at rehoming so she wouldn't be lonely. I feel better about her being alone now people have told me they have had lone pigs. Although not ideal it does seem
  12. Thankyou. It is. I have been beside myself with worry. It's good to see her back to her normal old self. The cucumber in the fridge is disappearing again
  13. I'm really enjoying this too and defiantly will be downloading the first of the books to read. I love books with a modern history vein and if they are true stories all the better. Fantastic. I love Miranda anyway. Win win for me
  14. Thankyou for your advice, I had not thought bringing her in at night may make her moult. She has always been an outdoors piggie although the hutch is in the garage overwinter it is still cold. We put a blanket over the hutch at night. I think people do successfully keep piggies outdoors. A friend of mine always put hers in at night and out everyday come what may and has had a piggie live till 8 years old. She loves being outdoors and seems to thrive on it, comming in at night is a new thing and more so she can have company. I will be keeping her in when the weather is extremely cold. I guess
  15. Thankyou for your advice. The thing that worried me about sending her to a GP rescue was really that Im sure they are snowed under with unwanted GP's. Im sure that they would rehome her in a good home. I have a rescue cat so Im aware of the procedure you have to go through and that its very thorough. After about 4 days of greiving she seems to have really turned a corner. She seemed in total shut down for a few days then has gone right back to normal. She is a quiet, gentle piggie in nature and loves a cuddle so we have been doing all we can to help her through. We have got her an ind
