Thank goodness you have power back Sharon. If only there was an end to the cold soon but the last weather forecast I saw showed Siberian winds being pushed down to us. Grim to hear about your neighbour... it's one thing after another, farmers could do with a break... a summer would help..
Megan, fingers crossed... do you have enough?

I do have plenty of tablets. They are out of date now as she has been so good up to press that I had no need to use them. Im sure they will be still effective though. I will see how she is this morning.

Sharon - it does sound very harsh there

I am oh so glad of the greenhouse given to me by my neighbour. The chickens have taken it over for the duration and even have a lovely bed of straw to settle in. Now I wonder where that came from
I too am well-trained to deliver regular food and water rations

Mine took over the greenhouse last winter..... they loved it, but the dust they raised from their baths covered all the overwintering plants so I had to ban them

Little Est much improved this morning thank goodness did not fancy doing the vomit thing again. Even though Iv done it lots with her each time I worry I am going to choke her.
Another half a tablet and fingers crossed she will be completely empty tomorrow

That's great news Megan. That wee girl certainly likes to keep you on you toes.

Oh Sharon, poor you, how dreadful. How sad for those poor sheep and their lambs to suffer so much on the hillsides. Hope you have warmed up and enjoying the power!

Megan, that naughty little Est really keeps you on your toes doesn't she? Hope she is better.

I feel I have had it easy, yes it's been cold but we have had about 2" of snow so nothing compared to your snow Sharon!

Stay safe and take care, Elvie happy hatching xx

Such a mix of good and bad stories Mine seem happyish in the morning and get more grumpy afternoon, I think that's cos the ground is frozen when we let them out at 6am and then becomes a mudbath during the day as it thaws...On a positive note, I shut them all in the inner run for a while today while I sprinkled liberal amounts of Stalosan F everywhere else...they all get on well now considering the nightmare I had pre integration...small mercies!

10 batts = 1 happy family...I wouldn't have believed that of mine not so long ago!
