  1. Hatching questions

    You can find clips on youtube about this. Made someone else google it for me once... not sure why I didn’t want to myself. But then again, I bring all animals to the vet for a soft departure.
  2. Pfieuw! I was starting to get worried about getting it finished! Although for the sake of the swap... I might be finished already and sent it! Who knows! One thing I do know for sure: I received a parcel already!!!
  3. Meet Josephine

    The pretty ones are always the highest maintenance... she is a real handful! Doesn’t listen to anything. Is oblivious to the meaning of “No!” And a very sensitive madam when it comes to aches and pains...
  4. We've decided to get chickens!!

    Well you are on the Omlet forum, so most here have Omlet coops. So plastic ones. I have the Eglu Go Up.
  5. I think I need to show this to my spoiled chickens! One snowflake snd they won’t come out of the coop, into the run, for days... They are terrified of snow. I literally have to give them breakfast in bed.
  6. The joys of being a 60 year old

    Happy birthday Valkyrie!!! 🎈🎈🎈
  7. Introducing one chicken to existing two

    I think you might need to take her back and get two new ones. Like Beantree says, it’s down to luck trying to integrate her, but that’s not how you should want to start your chicken keeping life.
  8. Introducing one chicken to existing two

    Introducing new birds to an existing flock can be very difficult, although some manage without much fuss. Adding a single bird is not something that is generally adviced and I think the chicken breeder shouldn’t have let you leave with a single bird, aspecially as new chicken owners. Personally I have never added a single bird, so someone will probably be along shortly to advice what to do now.
  9. You remember that clip with the goat screaming like a human? Pickwick is the chicken equivalent...
  10. I don’t wonder, I know. Also coming back to the egg laying business makes them on edge. Pickwick is always really antsy about laying and it will take her the best part of an hour, popping in and out of the coop, running around screaming and sitting on the nest screaming... With her I really do understand why her previous owners dumped her. The sound she makes is a ear piercing screeching...
  11. If you have Cube outside in winter, definitely keep clearing snow off the roof. I have A Go Up (yes I know, totally different coop) and even a little snow moves the plastic panels and makes it hard to open the back door.
  12. I think Beantree is right. Sleeping in the cube won’t be a problem I guess, but the chickens running around in -30 would in the long run. Their exposed bits like their comb might get frostbitten.
  13. How frustrating! It really is the strain of Spring! They are so on edge about everything! One of mine has declared a war against pigeons... all the racket they make about it!
  14. Herefordshire here we come!

    At least us Dutch know how to keep (most) from flooding! But really my house is about 1 metre below sealevel and having rivers and canals running in their beds that are higher than your ground floor level is very normal here. Pretty sure the local lake water level is higher than the floor of my house. Edit: I checked, street level is actually 3 metres below sea level...
  15. i need to get cracking! Have been very busy at work and on a schooltrip to Rome. And it turns out my project is more labour intensive than I thought....
