OK, so no-one wants to buy roosters I know….. 😉
But now I’m GIVING THEM AWAY! :pinch: Anyone?
Almost 18 weeks but STILL not crowing – HONESTLY!!!
I have 2 australorp roosters left – FREE – but must be picked up this weekend or they go to the big chooky farm in the sky …. 🙁
Luvin – I remember the soap saver you made and sent me years ago – I loved it!
It lasted for years too :tup:
I finally learnt how to crochet last year (at the tender age of 41!) and recently made a couple of soapsavers myself for us and our kids. Not so cute as your red heart ones, but I will always remember you fondly as the original…[Read more]
Hi Sprite :wave: always good to have more contributions and experiences.
Can you tell me what you mean by ‘gravel attacks’ ?? From what I have been told and experienced over the past 5 weeks the only way this can happen is if the surgeon did NOT remove all the stones during surgery. Not sure if it is routine but mine included a dye test to…[Read more]
Hi Crystal and welcome! :wave:
Wow you have some energy! I also have twins (age 6) although they are our only children and I feel overwhelmed at times with just 2!
(oh, and a dog, 7 fish and 18 chooks at last count – although I’m bracing myself to sell some of the chicks next year :pinch: )
Check with your local council re: chooks as they…[Read more]
Wow what a switch!
Poor Steve Ryan though – wonder if he really got ‘unceremoniously dumped’ 🙁
The show will surely benefit from Costa’s extra ‘oomph’ and earthy enthusiasm that has been lacking since Peter Cundall left.
I think he will be more in tune with shifting interests towards sustainability and the current demographic of younger…[Read more]
I agree with espinay – check out BYP site for decent breeds if you want ‘heirloom’ chooks. Heaps of info on each breed and a classified section.
Barnevelders are lovely looking chooks, leghorns can be a bit flighty (not the best choice if you have kids or want pets)
I have Australorps, Rhode Island Reds and Wyandottes – can recommend them all as…[Read more]
I don’t know of the legislation but boy, what a pain for you 👿 I’d be ringing another company or service by now if its possible.
Hope you get some joy from them soon.

Oh dear, sorry for getting all your hopes up!! :blush:
But did you really think you were going to find a pudding with no fat or sugar?!! Wouldn’t be worth eating would it? :laugh:
Bluewren – it is amazing the amount and range of patterns out there for allsorts of things– you name it and you can bet someone somewhere has a crochet pattern…[Read more]
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and good wishes :hug: I got home late yesterday, the op went well with no complications but it was quite a bit more ‘major’ than I expected. Took about 2 hours.
I am still in a bit of pain from the incisions (4) and the drain site (which was horrendous coming out :jawdrop: ) and also hurts when I breathe in…[Read more]
Wow – I can’t believe it is nearly 4 months since I started this topic :ohmy:
It is finally time to go into hospital tomorrow to get my gallbladder out! Luckliy I haven’t had too many problems in the waiting period, nothing major anyway.
All things going well, I should be in overnight only and back home before I know it. I hope so otherwise…[Read more]
Nice one Byrmark :tup:
It just struck me how lucky we are as home-chook owners to get surprises like these — but what do you think happens to eggs like these in commercial settings? :shrug: They certainly couldn’t go into a standard egg box.
I suppose large-scale battery farm chooks pump out a much more ‘standard size’ that could sell as…[Read more]
Oh, and Steve – my husband thought you WERE that Tassie farmer! 🙂
Well, you guessed it …..
it was a double yolker of course :tup: Unfortunately 1 of the yolks broke in the bowl, so it looks almost like a triple :S
Very pleased with our Lady right now! We never get double yolkers so its a real treat, especially for my little kids who were amazed :jawdrop:
Mushroom mini quiches tonight…. mmmm…[Read more]

….erm…. oh yes, of course….. me too :whistle: definitely NOT every night …. :blush:
Mudhen that’s great! :tup: Can you buy coconut oil in supermarkets or health food stores? I haven’t seen it.
I gave in to temptation only last week after wanting some Ice Magic for ages…. even though I know it’s so bad … :dry: I have memories of being amazed by this when I was young and now my kids are too, much better if I can make…[Read more]
What is it about this man??? Every time I hear him speak I have an incredible urge to run out and do something positive and worthwhile! :tup: He is so motivational but in such a down-to-earth (literally) kind of way.
Thanks for the book info, I reckon I’ll be buying myself a present 😉
Nice looking ‘non-Isa’ chook there :laugh: I think RIR cross too. Lovely colouring.
I have a new flock of pure RIR’s here just hatched 3 weeks ago (SO CUTE!)
If your chook is serious about being broody and accepts the eggs (keep a close eye on her for the first few days in case she leaves them) she should know what to do when they hatch and…[Read more]
I was going to sugges the same to Kristy but you beat me to it BV :tup: I’ve just ‘broken’ a broody by using the cage. No nesting materials, just food, water and a perch. She had been broody for 6 weeks (but wouldn’t accept the eggs we bought) 👿 and finally came out of it after a day and night in the cage.
BV- sorry to hear about your…[Read more]
Third apron (lime cosmic) sold :tup: Thanks RW, hope she like it.
Other 3 still available
How exciting! :clap: well done, now the next 2 weeks will seem like an eternity! (unless you are packing, then it will fly!)
