Chickens!

Gonna send them the game out tomorrow, also sending your thing, Kirrus, sorry it took so long. :p

Tera your guinea pig is almost finished but I might add a bit more to it.

I need to clean and polish my boots. The weather has been getting better recently, a lot warmer but it’s not good enough to wear easy shoes yet. I have switched the outside tap back on through the little valve inside.

Jenny has offered me a greenhouse from her old place, but despite the fact it’s only a couple of streets away, the house is empty, we have a key, and I’d only have to go round the back anyway, for some reason I can’t go round there and get it until she’s got free time, and she’s sooo busy at college! I think she’s just stalling for time to see if she can sell it instead. It doesn’t have any panels in so I’d have to buy some, but that shouldn’t be too hard. I assume I can either buy dedicated panels or I can just get the right glass/plastic cut to size somewhere. If there’s anywhere you should be able to buy glass, it’s St.Helens

I want a greenhouse so bad, and if she keeps dragging her feet I might just buy a new one. Can get a decent looking one for like, £200 with panels and a 5-year guarantee. Plus it’d have assembly instructions.

Oh yeah, this post title is “Chickens!” that’s because we got another one. The RSPCA have our phone number, and a woman phoned wanting to get rid of a chicken, because she had two but one had died and the one that was left was lonely. It’s from the same farm/batch as Thorax and Abigail, and I can’t tell the two girls apart now, apart from the fact the new chicken, Daisy was she was already named, is a lot shyer.

We’ve had her a few days now though and she’s settling in, not running around with the flock yet, she goes off on her own a lot, but they’re not pecking her or outright rejecting her, and they all sleep together. The first day Emmy noticed she was new and went over to inspect her, at which point Thorax PECKED Emmy and Emmy hasn’t been near her since, but none of the other dogs even noticed as far as I can tell. They’re all scared of Thorax anyway. She’s also laying an egg every day! (The chicken, not Emmy)

  • Well she has had some grief at the old house, and if the garden’s still in the state it was left by her tenants, then you certainly don’t want to be venturing into it in boots that you like… Plus it might look suspicious someone turning up and taking things without her being there.

    Anyways, if you don’t mind plastic, you can get a greenhouse for £55.. probably less than the glass for the other would cost: http://www.selections.com/GF7753/walk-in-greenhouse-3-bay/ – although how long they last might be a different matter entirely.

    Nice to hear Daisy is settling in, and being protected as well.. I still can’t keep the film “Chicken Run” out of my mind every time you mention them, though: I hope your defences include an anti-aircraft battery!
