Chicken Eggspert (2/19)



  1. thanks for that we might put some rat poison down the alley way if its ok with our neighbours
  2. i was just making some lunch today when i heard one of our chooks squaking so i went outside to find both chickens safe and sound in the garden. i then saw a huge thing scuttle throuhg the run . i went over and saw a rats head peering out of the house. i shut the rat in the house and then thought that the only thing i could do was to let it go so i let it come out of the house and it ran into the alley outside our house. any suggestions on how to get rid of this rat because i thought about putting poison down but then that would harm the chooks. any help would be appreciated thanks Tom.

  11. hi sorry i have been using the forum lately i ve been away i just posted in to tell you about what happened on wednesday we were watching the simpsons when suddenly we hear a knock at the door its our neighbor asking if we have chickens i said yes and he then said to me that they had escaped onto the main road. iwas in shock but i was delighted to find thatthey were unharmred
  12. Tonight I went to say hi to our girls, Hilda and Betty. However Betty was not herself, no 'bok bok', and she stayed in the run (despite the door being open) and seemed reluctant to move and was lethargic. Her rear/topside feathers were raised, almost like a bump on her back. Do these symptoms mean anything - or is it just being overheated from a hot day? Any ideas welcome, as I do not want to find her in the same state or worse tomorrow as they are now in 'bed'. Thanks.
