Good morning Friends
Congrats on finishing the chook shank chicken-clucky, good job
Thank you RodneyRooster
Howdy sinna4eva, Welcome to BYC and the thread; nice to meet you.
When you say “I have a fully functional chicken run with coop” and “first time raising babies”, do you have existing older chickens in the coop/run?
I agree with satay, maybe some day time excursions until they are fully feathered but if you have existing chickens; maybe a bit longer so that they can grow and fill out a bit more, making them that bit stronger on integration and possible bullying.
cwrite oh, how awful for you. If you live or buy in an existing developed area, you accept the surroundings but to once have had bushland and now to not, very sad
Not the same thing, but next door has a hedge on their side of the adjoining fence, so when I look out the kitchen windows, there is 6ft of fence and then an additional 6ft of beautiful green hedge. I came home from work one day and they had cut the hedge down to fence level .. I got such a shock; not only did the whole kitchen look different, the beautiful hedge view was replaced by a two story brick home. Granted it had always been there but I could not see it ... happily, the hedge has grown back.
Wow, they sure sound like the Dodgy Bros .. it would be a concern whether to get them back to fix the pipe they broke as you would have to weigh up the consequences of what else they may break in the process
Sorry, you may have mentioned previously, what are the Developers plans? Are they subdividing and selling off land parcels or building?
So, got the house work, washing etc all done yesterday; today is Christmas grocery shopping which may turn out to be worse than the already completed ‘dirty’ jobs Hubby is coming along to give me a hand .. I may need to check our funds before we go, not so much for how much we can spend on groceries but moreso whether I have enough for bail money when he punches someone .. lol.
Also, popping next door to get final feeding instructions for Tangles and pool maintaining lessons .. then, wave goodbye to the neighbour; give his plane time to take off and then hit the pool! Lol
Your hubby sounds like mine in the shops. He is good for carrying heavy stuff but besides that it is like having a fully grown 2 year old with you, you never know at any given point what he will get up to and whether you need to find a time out spot for him.
All 3 of us are off to the boxing day sales on the 26th. Son doesn't like crowds but loves a bargain so he puts up with it. I'm used to the crowds being a city chic for many years before moving out here and hubby well he comes along just to annoy us (he hates crowds, shops etc) i think but i send him to the car for time out if he can't behave and yes i have done exactly that on previous years
