Update on new chook and mental Bluebelle pic!

Recommended Posts

The new girl has settled in great, she now seems to be accepted by the other 3 albeit waaaaay down the bottom of the pecking order, the other Bluebelle was horrible to her and we had some head-pecking which got dealt with by applying lavish Tee Tree Oil to the back of Bizmillah's head. It did make me laugh :twisted: watching Fangango gargling madly with water after getting a mouthful of feathers, and we took the bully out of the group for a couple of days which really made a difference.

She is already crouching and having sits in the nesting box which is fantastic and is chatty and friendly, so despite her unconventional colouring she is a big hit all round!



Speaking of Bluebelles, here is a pic of Fandango....... :shock: does anyone else's chooks lie down to eat or is she just a bit 8.gif?


couldnt resist posting this- my shetland pone and her boyfriend snogging awwwwww!

Ponies extra cute as wasn't expecting them after chicken photos :D

I love really hairy fat native ponies :D

Abbie sits down a lot in general like standing up is too much effort, and mine stop eat anything of interest around them when dustbathing. Not generally when eating though. :lol:

So my suspicions are confirmed Fandango is being weird- she has a kind of Roman Banquet pose going on doesnt she? I should have called her Cleopatra maybe :lol: she doesnt do it all the time but she is the 'unconventional' chook of the bunch.

The pones are cute eh?

Is the black pone yours Rhapsody? That one reminds me of a black shetland called Napoleon that I used to look after for the RDA. He was an absolute horror but an angel with a child on his back. I even taught my son to ride on him. I used to try to exercise him on a lunge rein when no rider was available and he just used to take off and drag me round the field :twisted: He had the most gorgeous, kissable, wobbly, velvety nose ever. OH used to be :shock: at me kissing the pony! :lol: Sadly developed a large tumour on his neck and had to be put down. I still miss him. :(
