    Feathery Fanatic
  1. Yeah, through the nostrils and between her beaks. I didn't read your post until now! I did get a mouthful but thankfully the stuff I used didn't stain! I'm now considering getting a cheap wooden coop to keep the feather eater in
  2. No, the feather loss is on her bum and the back of her neck. I catch the other hen doing it. Bumper bits do not stop the culprit either
  3. Hi Dogmother Long time no see I've got a feather puller/eater I'm at my wits end with her. She even manages to do it with a bumper bit on I've got some anti peck spray so will try that. Any other advice?
  4. Its very frustrating, isn't it Pearls007
  5. Thank you for the great advice sjp I've blocked the hole, so will see what occurs overnight Ill pop to my local farmers feed merchant and get some bait blocks. First time I've ever had this problem
  6. Ive discovered yesterday that I have rats coming in under the fence next to my hens run My neighbours compost heap is piled up high against the fence the other side and I believe they are living in there. Thankfully my hens feed storage is secure but I'm now bringing in the grub at night. I will tell my neighbour today but I hope that he doesn't blame my hens for attracting them He needs to get rid of the compost heap before we can get rid of them I supopose
  7. My Amber Star feels very under weight to me. Her breast bone is very prominent. I had a feel of one of my other hens and she feels "normal". I wormed them last week. Any ideas for fattening her up and improving her condition? Thank you
  8. This is work in progress. You can see in the top right corner the tattoo I had covered up. When he said that he can cover it up I didn't think that he would just colour it in Finished but you cannot see the larger flower in this pic. Sorry about the size of the pics guys
  9. Your tattoo reminds me of those fantastic pictures in the botanical books that record different species of plants I am not sure I have a finished picture of my tattoo I will have a look. It was done in 3 sittings. Two 4 hour sessions and 1 two and a half hour session.
  10. Only just caught up with this thread Love your new tattoo Anne I agree regarding not going for tiny tattoos. Mine took 10.5 hours
  11. Oh ANH, I am so, so very sorry to hear (((((hugs))))) x
  12. I didn't even feel a thing
  13. We lost poor Cookie during the night on Sunday I found her dead in the eglu on Monday morning. I had taken her to the vet on Sunday as she couldn't breath. She was fine on Saturday, no sign of illness that I could see. I think the vet was surprised that I was prepared to pay the £106 emergency appointment fee for a hen. I explained when I saw him that she was part of the family. She has left behind Pixie, who is not a happy chook. She was calling for her early hours of Tuesday morning and keeps on popping into the eglu to look for her. She only usually goes into the eglu to lay her eggs and to sleep at night. Its heartbreaking watching her On the plus side, I have ordered a run extension to arrive on Friday and I hope to pick up 2 companions for her on Saturday
  14. Prob is with my eggs they are always covered in poop I always do the float test too, even the ones from the supermarket
