Hello old friends

Recommended Posts

Hello. I used to be on here many years ago but had some health issues and ended up having a liver transplant just over a year ago. My girls are very old now and we've dwindled from 4 cubes, 4 eglus and 49 chickens to just 3 cubes and 7 chickens in a massive walk in run. It was 4 chickens but we adopted 3 more last week. Hi by has had to do the main work due to my restrictions after the transplant but its all going well. 

I just wondered how many of the old gang were still on here.

Hello Janty I think you were before my time but it's good to hear that your health is improving and that you still have chickens! Welcome back!

I'm not sure I was ever more than on the periphery of the forum, but I was certainly around whilst you were. I'm glad to hear things are going better for you.

I can't ever imagine being without them. One of the surgeons said my cats, chickens and quail had to go. He got told straight.

Oh goodness you need something to keep you going,  always have a cat I will not be without one I dont think.   No more dogs - bit more of a tie and we have no chickens now.   Probably just as well as poorly husband for over a year so the cat keeps me going.   Quail eggs are so nice.

I remember you had lots of chickens.

Hey! Think I remember you building that massive Walk in Run and lots of concrete being poured, do you still have the same run?

Glad all the transplant went well, must have been a difficult time. 
All going well here, I graduated just over a year ago and loving life as a small animal vet :D

Hi Janty!  Good to see you.  I remember your wonderful WIR very well.  I was green with envy- still am.  I too have had health issues, including a liver resection.  Not as dramatic as your transplant though!   Thank goodness for the NHS.  Yes, I was told animals were unhygienic by the liver doctors, but my lovely oncologist told me to ignore them.    So I have.  But down to 3 bantams now.  Only one laying.  Still undecided if I should restock.  Great to see you back.  It’s a bit quiet.   Omlet seems to be focussing more on the FB page Omlet Community Chicken keepers Forum.   And did you know our own DM is a FB star now?

Hi Janty

glad to hear transplant went ok, I remember you having lots of chickens and quail. I am still waiting for my WIR promised to me by my husband many years ago 🙄 I am about to go out into the garden to shift more soil around to level the area for it so getting closer. 

Otherwise it is quite quiet here these days, Cinnamon is keeping those of us on Facebook uptodate with their amazing French barn conversion and as Lewis said above he's now qualified 😎

Hi Janty, I do not remember you from distant pass , but I do remember you from about eighteen months ago, you posted and mentioned you were waiting for a transplant. My daughter also had transplant of liver in May last year in Kings and I often wondered if you had been lucky enough to get a chance. So pleased to hear all went well, it is a tough time.

Hello Janty - how lovely to hear from you.  We shared a room at Omletina’s - must be 10 years ago. Hope you are keeping well after your transplant. x

Omletina!  A blast from the past there.   Wonder how she is.   I seem to remember she was another with a nice WIR

I remember you too Janty :)

 

I too have been gone for a while but missed having chickens so much  (moved house and garden and neighbours did not permit) but now I'm back and have 2 lovely ladies who make me smile every day :D

Hello Janty!

i remember you and that we’d hoped to catch up while I was visiting my aunty in Lowestoft many years ago. 
it sounds like you’ve been through the wars and come out the other side:  strength and health to you!


I’ve not been on Omlet for years either.  This summer I raised my first incy hatched brood and came on for advice (I’m leaving it to a sound broody in future....never again). 
 

hello to the rest of you.
