  1. Got 4 new chooks in april and 2 have already died.Lost Grace last week she was ok in the morning then found her dead in the coop I think she died whilst trying to lay.I found Hetty dead this morning,she had been off her food for a couple of days.They have been wormed and have no mites etc.I've been keeping chickens for 2 years and 6 have died out of 10. I think the longest one lived for 18 months. I feel more like sad mrs chicken than happy mrs chicken at the moment. :(

  2. Hi everyone,got my 4 new hens 2 weeks ago and they had been living in an old wooden coop and run I use for introductions and they have been freeranging with my existing 2 hens.On Monday I put them all together in the omlet wir.When it was bedtime my existing 2 hens went into the (purple eglu),one of the new girls attemped to enter and was soon chased out.Since then none of the hens have attemped to enter.They all sleep huddled up together in the corner of the run squashed up against the weldmesh.I am worried that a fox might try and grab a wing while they are sleeping.I have branches in there but they prefer to sleep on the floor.With the wind and the rain today I really don't want them sleeping outside so not sure what to do any ideas anyone?

  3. Thanks everyone for your kind words.

    really sorry :( have you thought of giving ex batts a home?

    I have thought of getting ex batts if theres anywhere near me,i will have to get a couple of new girls soon to keep Popcorn company.

  4. Sadly i lost my Miss Pepperpot today.She hadn't been laying for a couple of months but she was eating and drinking yesterday.She was just sat in the run when i went up to feed them today.I went to check on her later and she had passed away.I have only 1 chicken left now. :(
