Hyperventilating ............

Recommended Posts

panic has struck. :shock:


Had call last night from the Wernlas Collection to say my ladies are ready for collection (deep breaths).


Will be collecting them on Saturday afternoon (running round the kitchen panicking now!!!!!).


Have been out today and bought layers pellets, Verm-X, Mite powder and about a dozen other things that looked quite nice but have nothing to do with chickens :oops: Forgot to get grit (even though I bought containers for it while I was there :oops: ) and they were out of garlic powder.


Need to take a deep breath and calm down BUT I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED and so is my daughter (OH just rubbing his head in amusement!!!!!).


Hopefully I will calm down before Saturday (yeah right) :lol::lol:


If there's anything I have forgotten please let me know (have got champagne to launch Cluckingham Palace).


I'm going to be a fully fledged (sorry) member of the forum. :lol::lol::lol::wink:

Great news! 8)

Now then, have you got ...

garden chair to park at the side of the run

garden umbrella in case of inclement weather

digital camera with an empty memory card, charged and ready to go

photobucket account set up and tested

batches of meals for the family cooked and frozen (you won't be able to look after them and chickens for quite a while)

the children trained in how to wash, dress and feed themselves


I think that's the most important things, if I think of anything else I'll let you know! 8)

We're having a Buff Sussex (Ginny), a Light Sussex (Hermione) and a Rhode Island Red (Lunar) - can you see the theme.


The RIR is for my OH - an easter present from Eleanor - boy is he in for a shock. :lol::lol::lol::lol:


Absolutely agree with you Chillicat the people on this forum are brilliant and I wouldn't have been so organised (yeah right) if it wasn't for them. You feel really at home really quickly and feel as though you know everyone really well. Am totally addicted to this forum and chickens (do you think there's counselling available). :lol::lol::lol:





Oooh and I'm also getting better on this computer lark too!!! :lol::lol:
