    The Weather Thread # 6

    Horrified this morning to get up, look up garden and see the chicken's 12ft x 8ft run flipped over on its back. Thankfully the was still standing and the chooks safely locked inside so could have been much much worse. A lot of damage has been done to the run, and all the inside perches broken, cube ladder disappeared...god knows where thats gone!! We were out at 7am with head torches trying to right it back up which we just about managed to do, as the WIR is sooo heavy. Got to sort out in insides now and somehow repair the damage done. Not a nice way to wake up

    Bewildered chickens

    I did the same too.. , shut them in as didnt want them startled by any fireworks.... and didnt want them clucking too early this morning in case any neighbours were having a lie in.

    Guinea pigs tomorrow!

    aww bless... congrats on your new pigs. Am sure they will settle down soon, and will be bolder as they get to know you and their new home. You could alway take the hidey house out and bribe them with tasty treats, that usually works well xx

    Rehoming a guinea pig

    aww so glad you have got him now and look forward to the pics when you get chance to post. As a suggestion if they are not taking to each other too well, I always found if you gave them a bath together (using small pet shampo) and then a blow dry (low heat) it always helped mine bond. The dont like it overly much but it gets rid of their smell and they will smell the same afterwards. Its worth a try. xx

    Chickens from Country Fairs ??

    Hi thanks for the advice and experiences, I had never thought of some of the things mentioned. Glad I posted the query now as it has put me off getting any from the show. I will resist. Will have a looksee for some reputable breeders near me. Any recommendations for the West Mids / Shrops area. I know there is Wernlas but have heard they are selling up or retiring. I admit am torn between some different breeds or some more exbats. I was out with my exbats tonight and thought have had them 10 months now and feels so right to have given them an extra lease of life. xx

    Chickens from Country Fairs ??

    Hi its at Weston Park, just off the M54. Its not the bigges one held in uk but think its the last one of the year so if you are free worth a visit. http://www.countrymanfairs.co.uk/midland-game-fair Oh no Spacechick can I ask what happened ? xx
  9. I am off to West Midlands Game Fair in a couple of weeks as a visitor this year, not working it so get to have a good mooch around. Last year I remember there were chickens for sale and am so tempted to take a large cat carrier just in case there are some this year. Has anyone ever bought from a similar event ?? xx

    fish pedicure

    I know a few people that have had it too but it doenst appeal to me at all and am grossed out by the idea. Poor fish. Not surprised its been banned in some places, really dont think it should be allowed. xx

    My poor chickens are 'scared'

    poor things are still scared of all the noise and vibration and are spending a lot of time in the cube. Wish I had another spot could move them too but alas not. Bought them some maggots today to try encourage them out a bit, even though am grossed out by them big time but it was worth it to see them enjoy the wriggling treats... ewwwwww I am down to one a day too
