intros - a happy story :-)

Recommended Posts

a couple of weeks ago Spot died - non-specific chicken-drop-dead-itis, leaving Miggins on her own.


fortunately I was due on a BHWT rescue the following saturday - so booked a couple of hens, but i was nervous that miggins (huge brute of a bird) would simply eat them for pudding...


so I set them up a temporary pen so they could view each other...


here's Miggins eying up Windle Pooms..




but Miggins soon found her way in - and bl.oody murder was not done - so I said stuff it and let them all out together (sleeping together having been no problem)


less than a week later - with no bloodshed - Miggins and Duracell sit happily together under the bench as if they have been friends all their life - about to go off handbag shopping together:




and the usual introduction flashpoint - food in a confined space - seems to be no problem at all 8)





chicken introductions?? nowt to it!! 8)

Sorry to hear about Spot Revnev but glad the intros have gone well!


Duracell looks fully feathered compared to Windle Pooms!!!


yeah - my daughter picked them out - we decided to have a feathered and an oven-ready


i reckon the feathered ones (there are always a few) were the top chooks in their cage - all the rest got pecked!


though - of the two - Windle Pooms is the bolder and the more confident - perhaps cos she thinks she has less to lose! 8)

Lovely hens Phil (she says writing through her laughter as Milo dribbles on the duvet cover watching hubby eat his croissant) Windle is my fave despite the silly name! :wink: How you and Carys chose i'll never know - there were so many! Glad the into's have gone well! Though i still think Robin and Emanuel would have been better names! :wink:

Im so sorry to hear about Spot - its always a shock when you lose a good chicken friend. :(


I love the pictures Phil - they remind me of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly but not too sure which is which! :wink::lol::lol::lol:


Windle looks like she needs a lot of love but if Duracell and Miggins are being good friends then she has it made already. :D:D:D

So sorry to hear about Spot. It's so hard to lose a loved chook. :cry: I know what you mean about the 'drop-dead-itis'. Patty died in January, our first loss so we paid £150 for a post mortem to discover that nothing obvious was wrong - apparently they can just switch off! :shock:


Good luck with your new one! We have just bought 3 Bantams so watch this space!


All the best.
