    Hamster with a cold

    We had a lovely little hamster once who was as good as gold at the vets. DD had gone to clean him out on a Sunday afternoon, only to find blood in the sawdust, and we knew we needed a vet. The vet was worried about being bitten but soon realised he was a very sweet little thing. We think the hamster had some kind of manic attack on one of those salt block things and it damaged his kidneys. How is your little hamster today ?

    Poor fox cub

    Valkyrie, I know net curtains are old fashioned, but I've found they do help to stop the birds crashing into windows. We used to have a lot of birds crash into the windows but not any more. If you do manage to get a bird that stays alive, you can pop them into a box and put them in an airing cupboard for a couple of hours to recover.
  3. Aww, that means they are all safe together 😊
  4. The only thing to suggest is to cover your run with smaller gauge wire. We did this to stop a rat getting in, mind you I only have the lower 3m cube run so didn't need too much.

    Poor fox cub

    Poor little thing. Your colleagues are probably the kind that would see the little fox cub on the news the other day, that was tossed into an enclosure of hounds, as fun
  6. Me too, although they do all look very happy in there. Was it second hand ? It looks in very good condition.
  7. Golly, how did any creature manage to do that I wonder ? Do you know what time of day or night it happened ?
  8. That's looking great Now just to get some chickens.
  9. That's really sad, poor chicken and you. Was the attack through an Omlet run ?

    **Thread of little facts & things**....3

    I agree magpies are a nuisance. Noisy bullies. Earlier, a starling was collecting my soft, fluffy chickens feathers only to be bombed by a magpie. A black bird also got jumped on by a magpie, not to mention a poor baby blue tit on it's maiden flight, snapped out of the sky by a huge beak. Then they were making so much noise at 4.15 am the other day and again this morning. And don't even get started on the wood pigeons.....

    Hammer toe surgery

    I hope the antibiotics kick in and that your infection goes away soon. How mean of your boss to ask you to do stuff At my previous pre-school I was known as the cupboard Queen. I was off sick for a couple of days and they couldn't wait for me to get back because they didn't know how to fit all the toys back in the cupboard. OK, it was kind of like The Krypton Factor, but that just showed who it was that tidied the toys away every day.

    can chickens have coconuts ?

    Thanks for that DM, I won't bother getting them one 😊
  13. My DD is travelling all over the place and she was at the Cook Islands the other day and sent me a photo of a resident chicken pecking at a fresh coconut half - not the bird ones filled with fatty stuff. I was wondering if our chickens could have them for a treat or if it was actually not very good for them. I like to vary the things my girls have and a hanging coconut half could be a great distraction from pecking. What do you think ?

    Remember me?

    Welcome back 😊 Will look at your French pics later but I can't wait to see photos of your new chickens when you get them xx

    The mystery of the missing eggs

    I'm glad she is OK. I've had chickens for 10 years but they still cause worry from time to time. I also have some that pop into the nest box but forget to lay an egg, silly things.
