  1. Brilliant photo. There are definitely some positives about these strange times. Xx
  2. A rather belated happy new year to you all. I hope this will be a good year for everyone. I hope to be a bit more active this year. I doubt if I will get any chickens too scared of neighbour kicking off again. I do miss them.
  3. I’ve not been on for a while. So thrilled for you. Many congratulations. I feel like I know you even though we’ve never met. I have to agree with DM you look so grown up. Well done. A great achievement. xx
  4. After just over 11 years tonight is the first time that I have not had a chook to shut up. Our last little bantam died during last night, when I went to let her out this morning, there was no gentle quiet clucking and she didn't come trotting out as normal. She was the last one, I hatched her from eggs from Redwing over 7 years ago a little Welsummer bantam. She out lived all the others and quite a lot of hybrids too. I had intended to get some more to keep her company a few weeks ago but a neighbour who moved in about a year ago complained that my chickens were keeping him awake and he'd been woken up at 3.00 every morning and hadn't slept for over three months. He had also complained about the cockerel last year but shortly after that the cockerel passed away. He really upset me by the way he complained in front of granddaughter leering over garden fence at 8.00 in the morning as I was doing the school run. Granddaughter cried all the way to school because she didn't want our chicken killed so it wouldn't make a noise. I was all for moving but as we have spent lots on the house doing up the kitchen, bathroom and ensuite over the last year or so my OH said no. Immediate response by OH and DD to the loss of the chicken was you must get some more. I would love some more I've missed eggs and the funny goings on of chooks but am very worried about the neighbour. I was scared of him coming around to have another go and it brought back all the memories of being burgled and being worried of them or others coming back. It's been a difficult few weeks. Stupid really over a lovely little chicken.
  5. It isn't windy here yet. Pretty wet though. The rain turned to snow at about 7.30 enough to settle on the car but thankfully didn't settle on the roads. After 10 minutes or so turned back to rain.
  6. Oh dear should have read the date. It came up as the next post so I thought it was recent 😀😀
  7. Lovely day here too. In the afternoon we took the girls to Ferneleys Ice Cream and sat outside eating delicious ice cream. Then talked puppies with the couple on the next table. Then watched the younger two granddaughters playing and climbing in the outdoor play area . Lovely family afternoon.
  8. I'm sure they will like your application and if they don't it will be their loss. Good luck. When are you home next?
  9. Good luck Lewis. I am sure it will work out in the long term even if you don't get your favoured choice. Fingers crossed you get the one you like.
  10. I've got two of the Omlet stands in my WIR. I haven't had any problems with stability. Shame if they are out of stock.
  11. Oh my mum was rather partial to those. I didn't know they still existed. I hope everyone gets what they hope for on Valentine's Day.
  12. I think I read that Redwing was doing more with her ponies and not showing chooks at the moment. Both times I've hatched I got eggs from Redwing. Still got one of the bantams from her eggs. That is my only chook left now.
