I love the first pic, would be a good advert for Weight Watchers!
Good advice Cab. If you observe your birds and get to know them you will soon know if anything is wrong, long before it becomes a major problem.
Hi icemaiden. All our coops have two coats on the exterior of 'cuprinol shades'. It worked very well in England but sadly not here. The areas continually damp have got mildew stains on them. Problem is it needs some sun and airflow to dry it...
It gives me great pleasure to have Veronica Mayhew providing a guest post for my blog this month. Veronica has been selling antiquarian poultry books and memorabilia for over 30 years.
I never seem to tire of incubating and hatching chicks, it's always an amazing moment seeing chicks emerge from their shell and start peeping. My current batch of Light Sussex chicken eggs are 8 day into incubation and this week I have been candling them.
