    I have raised a fierce woman!

    What a fantastic young woman you have there DM (and what a vile human being she’s highlighting)

    To fall in the apples - I love that! Maybe to do with cider?!

    That’s a really good idea DM

    **Thread of little facts & things**....3

    My job is normally more or less ‘normal’ weekday hours, but Fri, Sat and Sun I was working from 5pm to 6am - so wiped out my whole weekend! I don’t mind in as much as we don’t ever do anything special at Easter (other than eat chocolate eggs!), but I am a bit miffed to have had to sleep through so much lovely weather.

    Easter swap 2019

    HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY 🐣🐣🐣🐣 Thankyou so much Easter bunny for my lovely treats! So prettily wrapped too in lovely chicken napkins. I have an absolutely brilliant easter bunny pincushion - just fantastic and has lots of little bits and pieces in, and a gold bunny who will be coming to work with me tonight and may not make it home again! As you can see Duck and Camilla were as excited to get the parcel open as me

    Why won't they sleep in the Eglu?

    My original girls were happy in a Go, but when I got some new Dutch bantams last autumn they absolutely hated it. They just didn’t want to sleep at ground level. As soon as I moved them into the Cube with the rest of the gang they were fine. It seems some chooks just really don’t want to be on the ground. If the Go is in the WIR try putting it up on a table and see if that helps.

    Hasn’t felt very springlike at all the last few days, but it’s forecast to be lovely by the end of the week - let summer hope they’re right!

    To worm or not to worm?

    I definitely wouldn’t worm at that age. In the past I would’ve probably wormed at 3 or 4 months, but now, following Lewis’ advice I would send a sample off to chickenvet to see if they had worms before treating.
  13. Mine are a bit fair weather too and except for my mad greedy campine they won’t come out when it’s raining either.

    Hen or Cockerel ?

    My favourite game!!! I’ve never had a barnevelder but have had Wyandotte chicks as well as campines and pekins. To me it looks like you have one female (on the right in the middle photo and at the back in the bottom photo) and two males. Could be completely wrong though!!
  15. I have the lo rise run attached to a 2m Cube run. Works brilliantly for me. My lo rise WIR bit is now 4x2 for 9 bantams.
