Chicken Eggspert

Chicken Eggspert (2/19)



  1. I eat free range chicken, I get my ‘other’ meat products from a good local butcher who gets (some) of his meat direct from a farm about 30 miles away. I normally eat vegetarian when out, after quizzing the waitresses for ages about where the products have come from. I find it almost a challenge to see if they know anything about the product they sell. I’d love to have birds and pigs for the table, but we don’t have the room. I’d still like to experience what it’s like to cull a bird – just to see if I could. Is that wrong?
  2. Feel a bit silly asking this one but... Is there a Super Grub? In the descriptions of grubs under Classic and Cubes they state that they hold different amounts of food, but I've never seen a 'Super Grub' like you would a 'Super Glug'. More curious than anything else...
  3. I really dislike people that make such comments! I believe your mom has a great life (well it sounds great to me!!). I know several 'older' ladies that enjoy baking, aerobics, cycling, gardening, campaigning, sewing - oh the list is endless! I can't wait to retire to 'get a life'. You're mom sounds great. I love the sound of the pudding, but I'm still mastering cookies at the moment to move onto anything else!
  4. Mine is my white star (I think) Rose. She was chosen by the other half. I find her flighty, hard to pick up (I rarely do anyway) and doesn't even take sweetcorn if I'm holding the pot
  5. I use an 'under bed' storage container with a few holes poked in the bottom...without the lid Nice bright pink. My ladies perch on the sides of this too.
  6. It is very distressing when dog attacks happen. I know Tommy can be quite unfriendly if he's on lead, especially towards SBT's (he has been attacked a couple of times) but is fine off lead. I will always put him back on lead if I see other dogs are. I wish people would take more responsibility over their dogs & I wish 'some' dog owners would realise the difference between friendly play and aggressiveness!
  7. Ivy did the first time she got on it, but now they all jump up - it's quite funny watching them jostle for position
  8. Sorry to read this...an awful way to loose a flock Hope you had some help in sorting this... ((hugs))
  9. I’ve been worrying about my ladies being bored after being moved from grass to woodchip over Winter, so taking inspiration from here I made a swing over the weekend http://i1098.photobucket.com/albums/g379/LisaCora/Chooks/DSC_0040-1-2-1.jpg The photo shows Ivy, my top hen, having a swing as soon as it was put up. Its a bit blurred because I didn't want her to think I was spying on her ... She has now allowed the other two to join her
  10. All these pictures of Bantams! I hope I dont get struck down with morehens disease
  11. That is the cutest thing I've seen for a long while!! Congrats...
  12. I also thought the Cube was huge when I first put it up. I have a small garden and was thinking to myslef I'll never be able to keep hens again and burst into tears! OH told me to calm down and leave it up for a few days before I made any 'rash' decisions. Two days later I'd got used to it. Next day I bought a 1mtr extension. Within a week I have three hens
  13. Oh Teabag! I'm another stranger wishing you well - my thoughts are with you this morning. What an awful thing to have happened...Life is such a precious thing taken for granted by too many... Big (((((hugs))))) to you and your family. xx
  14. I think you're right...
  15. Subaru Forester here. 4 wheel drive, large lugage load (can fit a cube and run in ), reliable (touch wood), goes like stink.. Bit expensive to insure, but then, I do live in the Bronx
