    MyWifesBrassicas, do you have the option of keeping a cockerel? Like Scarlet says, spring chicks should grow to become winter layers.

    Not only foxes you need to be prepared for. Badgers are stronger so are the sledge hammer thieves. Stoats and weasels can get in to all manner of places and will pluck young stock from the rafters.


    I don't have any stock at the moment, Neighbour has the badger problem. I have a stoat stealing my mice traps (i.e. carry off the mice & trap), - keep finding them in some strange places.

    Hi, thanks for the info.
    Would love a cockerel, but its the allotment agreement, I'm contractually obliged not to have one and I'm sure the overlooking neighbours would object.
    To my knowledge, I only have issues with foxes.
    thats really funny regarding the mouse trap thief, id set up some sort of video or go pro of that, would be wonderful
