Help......Doris has died

Recommended Posts

Alan went out to check on the chooks as usual...as Doris was lethargic all day yesterday and even had to pick her up to put her in the eglu.... anyway as being rather upset... we both would like to get another friend for Mabel so she does not get lonely.... our question is any breeders/farms in Leicestershire?

We know we have to take Doris to the vets.....just waiting for them to open this morning.

Really sorry to hear about Doris :(

I don't know of any sellers of hybrids in Leicestershire (although I am sure there are some) but it might be worth ringing omlet to send you another (or even 2!). I hope the vet is able to tell you more about what happened to Doris. :(

we have just bee to collect a new hen to keep mabel company.... found a lovely lady that has some hybrids for sale she also runs a company called leicestershireemus.com which deals with emu oil products... anyway we bought a rhode island chicken from her and have called her Flo... Mabel is telling her who is boss at the mo... but we have decided to let her run around the garden

anyway thanks for all your kind words and advice!!

Hi Sue & Alan,


Sorry to hear about Doris. Hope you have lots of fun with Flo. If you were pleased with the breeder you got her from, perhaps you could add them to the list of recomendations on this forum. It's a "Sticky: Where to buy chickens" topic and it's in the "Chicken FAQ" section.

Hi Sue and Alan.

So sorry to hear about Doris: :(

Glad you have gone out and found a new friend. Fingers crossed for a happy, trouble free introduction!


I'm moving your thread to the Chickens section... Hope you don't mind....

Do let us know how they are getting on! :D
