    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Hi, I need to extend my Omlet mark 1 walk-in chicken run. If anyone is selling any pieces, please give me a shout. Happy to pay postage or travel to collect in person

    Can chickens hiccup?

    One of mine burps after wolfing her treats down, (usually it's just one burp, but it's a 'builders burp' so to speak, and not very ladylike). I don't know what I'd do if I saw a hiccup! My motherly urge would want to try and get her a drink, the rest of me would probably think it was cute and get a fit of the giggles! Hope Rose is okay with her hiccups and they're not causing her any problems! x

    Chicken laying asteroids

    Thank you all so much for taking the time to reply. I've ordered the worming stuff, so fingers crossed that'll help her out a bit. If not, well she's had a tough life, if it's time for her egginess to tail off so be it. She gets live out her days with TLC come what may. Really, appreciate you guys helping me out here. Big thanks again!
  4. Hi, I'm a newbie - so really sorry if I'm breeching any posting ettiquette here. I've had 3 ex-battery hens for a couple of months. They all seem to be happy and bouncy, and at first all laid fine. For the last month or so my tattiest little hen seems to be having problems. She's always laid healthy eggs around 65 - 70 grams, but now she's laying 75 - 80 gram eggs with terrible shells. I've been putting calcium powder in her mash, and for a few days she laid smaller eggs with good shells, but now she's back to asteroids again. Is there anything I can do to help her out a bit? Anything I can do to help her keep her eggs small and more manageable for her? She's obviously been bottom of the pecking order and had a rotten time in her battery cage, but now she's feathering up nicely and gaining weight. I wondered whether this feathering spurt and weight gain could be causing the egg problems? Any ideas very gratefully appeciated!
