Lisanne I love your salmon faverolles are they full size or batam? Thanks!! They are full size but in those photo's they were still less than 16 weeks old possibly even younger. They are heaps bigger now

a gf of mine used to fill cool drink bottles with water. put them in a plastic bag and store then in the freezer. they'd be removed from the freezer and bag and added to her guinea pigs cage/ dwarf rabbit to keep them cool Another great idea! Thanks guys :D :D
Another great idea! Thanks guys

i cut milk containers in half, fill them with water, freeze them, then morning before i go to work, i put them in the coop. (ice by itself removed from container) They huddle around them, then sit in the ground around them when they start to melt. seemed to work very well, didnt see them panting at...

They are very cute and fluffy which has has me worried in today's 40degrees but they seem alright :D I honestly find it amazing how instincts just kick in - they don't have anyone showing them what to do and yet they work it out. It's pretty awesome

Good question! :th: All I know is that if you put them in a bowl of water and they sink they are OK but if they float toss them! I know that's how you tell if an egg is old cos the older they get the bigger the air pocket but not sure if that would work for this. :th: :th:

I mulched my vegies today and also the transplanted tomatoes - the chooks love scratching around in the mulch so I can't mulch the small seedlings when the chooks can get to them and they end up damaging the plant. Off to buy more seedlings this afternoon. I went to get them this morning but they ba...

Hi there Cassie! :) We are about to extend the chook run a further 20m along the fenceline-it will allow the hens to forage under some of the fruit trees during the day-at the moment their run is 6m & 6m-so the extra room will be appreciated I'm sure! We are also about to add some more hens to ...

About 3 weeks ago I cleared out 3 of the 4 vegie beds and they needed planting out. I had let the chooks into them for a bit to scratch around and so on and then 1.5 weeks ago I bought a heap of seedlings. Fortunately I only got around to planting them today. I say fortunately because of the big sto...

Today I got my first egg from my chooks!! My chooks are almost 21 weeks old now and should be laying eggs but they aren't, so around lunch time today I had a stern word to them to let them know that if they didn't start laying eggs soon that there would be trouble! They are still really cute and fun...

Thanks Fu. I do have heaps of eggshells on the bed but I think cos I planted them so closely that the moths probably couldn't see them - oops! hahahaha
