Re: Dead chickens...ferrets??

We think we lost one of ours to a mink. I'd seen it a few days before running across the road but decided the mesh on our run was small enough to keep it out. Sadly mistaken and like you found a headless chicken in the run{cry}

Cream Legbar cockerel chicks

Just seen a post on our local Facebook page. A lady is looking for a home up to 4 Cream Legbar boy chicks. They have been hatched at her child's nursery and the company who provided the eggs and equipment have told them they will despatch the boys when they collect them. Poor children are upset and ...

Re: Steiffs

I have a beloved Steiff pony called Mary. She belonged to my uncle who came here from Hungary as a boy in the war. He gave her to me when I was small and she went everywhere with me. She's in a bit of a state, the leather on her hooves has worn away revealing the straw stuffing. I've often wondered ...

Re: Query about dog food

Eddie isn't keen on eating dry food on it's own. We always mix in a forkfull of tinned meat in gravy to moisten it and we add some chopped veg too (raw carrot, green beans etc)
