    Christmas swap 2019

    Anyone fancy the Christmas swap again this year ? I'm happy to organise it again 😊 I thought I'd get organised earlier this year, as I know some of you can't wait, but I have a busy couple of weeks ahead, plus I saw Christmas stuff in the garden centre, so it must be time. Let me know if you would like to join in. For any of you that haven't taken part before, you make something nice for your swap person and send it to them and someone else makes something nice for you, but of course it is all a secret. There will be a cut off date for joining in - this makes it easier for me to sort people out. Also if you decide not to take part any more, letting me know sooner is better. I will put last posting dates up nearer the time and you will need to let me know if you can't post abroad. On the list so far then is Me - Luvachicken Cat tails ( I know she'll be here straight away, so have put her on already )

    When Do You Decorate?

    When DD was small, we always waited until a good few days after her birthday - which is 18th December - so that she had a proper birthday not a Christmassy one. It's only been in the last few years that we now put it up around 1st December, mostly because December seems so drab sometimes weather wise, and because people have sent me things that I like to look at for longer than a couple of weeks. Putting the bells on our tree always reminds me of our dog Daisy at this time of year, you always knew she was having a good rummage under the tree because the bells would tinkle.

    Hmm, you've already though of the ones I was going to suggest... How about Robin or Bell(e) ?

    Just 3 parcels to be sent, but still plenty of time to go. Maybe don't mention if you sent it first or second class

    Christmas swap 2019

    We all usually wait until Christmas Day, unless I have been sent a message to say so that anyone can have theirs early, as in the case of patsylabrador's. I think a lot of parcels have been sent now, just need to tick them off.

    He looks lovely and such a festive addition to the smallest room. I'm glad you let us see him sooner rather than later. I'm thinking Cat tails might know I've posted my parcel

    Aubiose - new product for chickens

    I wonder if they will sell that at Rokers ? It would be good if they do, especially if it is cheaper than the original aubiose.

    That's why I mentioned they were on before 😊. Loads of ideas on there to try. I love her program but there are not always things that you can make at home. I'm sure there used to be loads when it originally started.

    When I first saw that name on a book I thought it was the name of a person - Ami Gurumi I know better now but still haven't done any crochet. Knitting is easier.

    Harkers spot on

    My vet recommended Frontline spray for lice and there was no need to use anything else. Would you say she is correct ? She also said to do it in the morning so they could dry and not to do it on a cold day - as the alcohol would make them chilly while it evaporated.

    Someone else has told me they have also sent their parcel. Ooooh it's so exciting

    Christmas swap 2019

    I guess it's obvious that some parcels have been sent already I have PM's from those that have sent already. Don't panic if you haven't finished or sent your items yet - there is still plenty of time. Patsylabrador, I have a very special PM that says you are allowed to open your parcel on December 1st 🎄 I haven't had any messages for the rest of us.......yet.
  15. I had gravel in the run almost 10 years ago and it was a total waste of money. It just turned into a poopy mess even though I raked it and would hose it down often. Nowadays my girls have hardwood woodchips in their run and it is the best thing we've done - clean and no smell. Pekins will get mud balls on their feet no matter what you do. It's best to help them out and gently pick them off for them. Best place we've found for the woodchips is Flyte so Fancy. Any pictures of your lovely chooks ?

    Christmas swap 2019

    It has been brought to my attention that the dates I put up - which I copied and pasted from Royal Mail - were not quite right, so someone has their parcel earlier than they thought they might. And their poor maker was put under pressure that they didn't need to have been. I'm so sorry about that, but I did copy them as that's what I've done before to make it easier and not make a mistake. I see the dates have been changed from when I originally put them on. I hope this helps with any more parcel postings. Stupid Royal Mail. Hubby says it's my fault for not looking at the dates and realising it was different to the others - I will look more closely next time. Well done to the beady eyed swapper in the first place Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Poland , Italy Saturday 14th December Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland Monday 16th December Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg Wednesday 18th Decembe

    New Feathered Friends

    To be honest, if I was a chicken right now, I'd want to stay indoors in this weather too. I think all of your chickens look lovely. I can't wait to hear about all of your chicken adventures and your first egg 😊

    I don't suppose schools are closed there because of snow. Looks very beautiful though.

    Brrrr, that sounds chilly. I'm loving the vision of a happy baby all snuggly on a sledge.

    I'm in a similar situation except I have 2 small pekins. I'm just hoping they will snuggle together and keep each other warm, but I'm not sure they do.
