    Recommendations for France?

    It shouldn't be too bad. Even if we go by cab in traffic it's only taken us 30 minutes before. On the way back we have nearly 2 hours, so I'm happier with that.

    New style Glugs Q.

    I did try them with one before, but they seemed to make a dreadful mess when they had one? Thanks. I quite like their new trough-like look. Maybe I'll order one now.
  3. Hello, Does anyone know: do the new style Glugs still fit the Mark 1 style runs? I need to get another drinker for the girls to make sure they definitely have enough while we're away. TY, Andy

    Take one whole free range chicken

    No, no - I'm not offended. It's not up to me to tell other people what they eat. T'was just a joke.

    It's ok. I'm not one of those veggies who judges. And I've only been veggie for 2 years myself; I was no stranger to KFC either.

    We have an hour and a half change over in Paris. Unfortunately we've got to get from Gare du Nord to Gare du Lyon in that time. I have a plan, though. Basically, I just drink until I don't care and just hope by the time I arrive in Montpellier that there are still 2 children with us.

    I'm a vegetarian, so I'll just watch my chickens play in the garden while they sing "We like being alive!" over and over. lol

    I'm not even sure they have the attention span to make it folder to folder. lol I cannot impress enough how easily distracted these children are. Taking them to a vineyard and giving them a glass or two might shut them up, though.

    hybrid hens lifespan?

    Ours are about 3 years now, so truthfully I'm expecting them to start popping off shortly. I'd always read that 3.5 - 4 years was pretty average. I think anything over 5 and they become a village elder.

    Annnnnd, it's official: we're all booked in for Montpellier in July. YAY! If you know how to keep a 5 year old boy and an 8 year old girl contented for 8 hours of travel, now is your time to shine. lol

    I don't know if you've done Tuscany, but there are some really nice little towns in that area: Montecatini, Figueres, Girona, Lucca.

    Heritage Breeds (TM)!?

    Well, the picture on the box looks like what I can a Bluebelle hen, which so far as I am aware is a hybrid based on an Orpington - but maybe someone can correct me? I've never heard of a 'Royal' Legbar, but it could be a hybrid strain they have created themselves. It mentions they are based on an Araucana, which is a heritage breed, so far as I am aware. It sounds like it is just marketing waffle which is loosely based on some truth.

    Heidelberg is really nice. And I quite like Mainz too.

    Recommendations for France?

    We've just had to inform our Brexit-voting family (the people coming with us) that they need to get new passports and may have to fill out the visa-waiver forms and pay fees etc. They seemed most surprised that leaving meant we couldn't just do what we did before. 🤦‍♂️ Oh, well... C'est la vie. Hopefully all the EU countries will sign up to the new scheme and we won't need various documents to move between them! Have you been round Germany? A lot of the 'old' cities are nice. I love Berlin but it is obviously quite 'new' in terms of buildings etc., as it was virtually obliterated during the war. A friend lives in Luxembourg and she loves it there. Not sure what there is to do, though. I also love Croatia - it's beautiful!
