  1. Not sorted it yet, I'll get a big bowl on Sunday. Thanks
  2. The border/edging will be here tomorrow so I'll have everything ready to go for the new arrivals. I have a clear tarp which covers the complete run. I'm going with a membrane and woodchipd for now, will probably remove the chips and fit slabs before next winter.
  3. Yes they will be told to be nice and calm around them. Looking forward to posting pics when i get them. I've ordered raised edge bedding to keep the woodchips in the run but looks like it wont be here in time so the hens will have to make do with grass and some straw for a week.
  4. Thanks for your replies. The kids are very excited for picking them up, ok me more so 😁
  5. I am picking up my new hens on Saturday and should have them home for 4pm. X 3 bantams. What is the best way to settle them? Should i put them in the coop and let them settle overnight before letting them out in the run rhe next morning? Should i put food and water in their coop for the first night? I have some Nettex Vit Boost + with Added Seaweed, should i give them this to help them settle? will they need worming or anything to ensure they are in good health? Thanks
  6. I've found something that will suit. My coop and run will be in the corner of my garden so it won't be a trip hazard
  7. I'm looking to get my go up ready for picking up my hens. Does anyone know where i can get edging like in this photo?
  8. Probably a repeat topic but as Omlet don't do an automatic door for the go i was looking at this https://www.hentronix.co.uk/mainstore/hentronix-handle-operated-coop-opener Has any used this? If so, any reviews?
  9. Thanks for the replies. What should i use to fill the dust bath?
  10. Quick question, how important is a dust bath and what do you put in it? Would this suffice for the hens i am getting?
  11. Great, thanks very much. Is it best to cover the carrier with a blanket? Thanks for the replies, we're going to see the hens on Sunday.

  13. Will a cat carry box be big enough for 3 bantams?
  14. I'm just looking for placid hens to have for the occasional eggs and for my kids to enjoy. Quick question, what shall i transport them home in? Will a cat carry box donor a cardboard box?
  15. The lady is only asking £10 per hen and I’m travelling 2hrs this Sunday to see them. Thanks for the advice and tips, she seems to know what she’s talking about so hoping all is above board.
