Re: That's IT

Sorry to hear this Henwife, If you leave you'll be very much missed. We didn't have any trouble with foxes for years, then someone killed the old fox that only came out during the nightime. We were soon visited by a shedfull of young foxes that were not afraid to come out during the daylight hours. ...

Re: Bluebelle hybrids? Yeah or Nay?

Hubby wants a rest from keeping chickens for a while. If I can find someone near me who boards hens then yes I will.
Only Bettyboo bluebell left now. :-(

Re: Bluebelle hybrids? Yeah or Nay?

I've had a pair of Brahma, my all time favourite pure breed. So gentle, just lost Max day before yesterday. Buffy was always so concerned with everything. When we had our kitten she followed him everywhere gazing at him with her head to one side. Really miss the both of them.

Re: Bluebelle hybrids? Yeah or Nay?

My favourites are black rocks, so friendly and good layers. I've found CBT's flighty. But as jillychick says they're all different. The warrens again are very good all-rounders friendly good layers pretty and inquisitive ....a good basic hen.

Re: blue eye?

When eye is damaged it will go cloudy blue, It's a kind of protection. My little sister had a guinea pig that had a grass seed in her eye and went completely blue-ish white. When I managed to get the seed out it returned to normal over night.
Hope it's just that. How is she today?
