Freshly Laid Egg

Freshly Laid Egg (1/19)



  1. it happens some hens are just more adventurous than others older hens tend to be a bit to heavy to fly and jump over fences, and most are just to lazy to try. Yes they seem to have some spring in there legs
  2. Yes she is they haven't got out since
  3. Hi thanks for the reply everyone we looked for her this morning but there's was no sign and we have finally found her up the park lane where the other one was. We used to clip both wings but now we have realised that your only supposed to clip one, we are going to get a higher fence but it's strange these hens are getting out because we've had 10 other hens and they have never got out. Many thanks
  4. I came home to find 2 of my chickens out on the grass so I lifted them back in and I realised only 1 in the pen and I'm supposed to have 6 after I put the 2 back in i went looking for the others and I found one up the park lane and another on the feild next to me. I've been looking all night for the other one and I can't find it, does anybody know how to get it back or where to look?? Also how to stop them getting out because I've clipped there wings and they still manage to get over the fence?
  5. You cut the first 7 feathers of the wing to make it the same size as the top of the wing.
  6. Thanks mrs_B I now know how to do it and will be adding it in a minute I always wondered how to do that
  7. Pleased to say we have successfully fitted the bump abit to 2 of the chickens that we're pecking the other two. We managed by soaking the bits in warm water first and having a firm hold on the chicken and a no-nonsense approach. They easily went on, without the use of the pliers. They were not too happy and sulked initially but soon came round. Hopefully that will sort them out! Charlotte Carrie Miranda Samantha
