    I think i forgot i lost a lady last year (evil twin numero 2) but today added 4 more, so that

    3248 - 1 = 3247

    3247 + 4 = 3251
    I grow 70% for us and 30% for the snails, then the neighbours eats them

    3251 - 1 = 3250

    Added a few more chooks to my menagerie. I used to look after a cockerel and a small white bantam which wasn't being treat right. I now have these chooks plus another four brown hens which were being ditched by another plotholder because they were sick of them.He has about another dozen which i am hopeful he can rehouse or i might finish up with even more!
    As chook keepers are aware its hard to rehouse a cockerel. I had to help this guy though because the cockerel is a sweetie and is not too vociferous. Once i ve had him for a while and he's back to his normal self I'll post a piccie. I had to throw all my clothes straight in the wash after retrieving these chooks as the conditions they were in was deplorable. The first thing they did in my comparatively dry portion of the run was have a dustbath. The bonny lad is stopping any bitchinness between his chooks and my other chooks and all are blending together well.

    I'll let someone else do the maths!

    3256 - 1. Viola our Speckaldy stopped eating last week. Vet couldn't find anything wrong with her and said it was probably old age, (she was 6) He gave her a steroid injection to make her eat but to no avail. Total now 3255

    Minus another one. Bluebell aged 5. Right as rain Monday. Passing blood Tues, had a prolapse. Vet said impossible to treat so put to sleep. I'm now down to two hens. Not looking forward to when it's just one but going to give up when they've all gone.
    Total now 3254
