Chatty Chicken

Chatty Chicken (7/19)



  1. Hello peeps I received an Omlet email saying someone had left a message but it only showed briefly and vanished when I opened it so didn't see what it was about. Could who ever it was please try again or pm me. I think (but could be totally wrong) that the name Connie was part of the name. Apologies to monitors if I can't ask this on here but wasn't sure how to find out.
  2. Really cheeky ask but I'm wondering if there is anyone who lives in Huddersfield that is going to the National Poultry Show at Stafford weekend after next who would be willing to bring a pair of Japanese down to the show for collection? I know it's a long shot but worth a try. Profuse apologies if it's not allowed to ask on the forum.
  3. My lot leave my Heuchera (think that's how it's spelled), flag irises dahlias, peonies, scabius, roses, lavender alone if that's any help for some green ideas.
  4. Mine pant a bit when they've got an egg brewing.
  5. Haha the Fareham brood fever is confirmed as a highly ontagious airborn virus. Three of mine have chicks, 2 to go. Had an accommodation sort out today took all day too.
  6. I've got a couple of OEGs very diddy talkative wee things, Tweet has just gone broody and is on Japanese eggs. Twitter is, well odd, kind of in another world and is prone to doing a goose stepping thing when she walks. They are both good layers and would recommend them to anyone. The boys can be agressive as is what they are. Love them to bits.
  7. Now Dolly who's been a pain has at last settled where I want so she's got a bundle of Japanese eggs. She didn't want the rabbit hutch nor the greenhouse so we've gone for the dog crate in the corner of the kitchen like last year. The Madame came in took one look and was straight in there. Peace can return to the biguns house.
  8. Lisa-Marie mourned for he no2 Paxo when she went she took to the nest box for 3 days and was very subdued. She's still top bird bird I can't say that she has a best friend a year on and she's not close to the Orloff that's now no2.
  9. It's contagious, I've got 2 broody Japs and Persil on eggs and then Dolly is trying to be broody but not where I want her to be so she's not getting any eggs. Then there's 30 chicks in the greenhouse and 10 in the lounge. Fed up of cleaning out chickens. AAAAarrrghh
  10. Flooring will be fine whatever you use. I'd give her the usual pellets that she's used to, I also put a little pot of chopped fruit near so she can have a snackette without leaving the nest, the juice in the fruit doesn't go amiss either. If she doesn't eat it in a few hours chuck it away.
  11. It should be 21 days unless they're Barbu d'Anvers which are 20. (You probably know that anyway.)
  12. I normally do this kind of thing when they're out to see to themselves. They're that keen to get back to the nest they don't notice.
  13. OMG one of the Crevecoeur has actually done 2 eggs in 3 days. That's 2 more than the pair of them put together the last couple of years. I shall make sure I do something special with them, they're almost as rare as hens teeth!
  14. So final tally of 12. 2 welsummers, 3 Pekins, look to be lavender or blue, 2 orps and the rest are my Japs n crosses. All very tiny and cute.
  15. So far there are what appears to be 3 Japs and a JapXsomething. So diddy, luffs them chickies
