    On Monday Chicken Wing and myself should be taking ownership of a brand new Eglu Cube, courtesy of Omlet, ready for our new chickens.

    Have to say I'm rather excited about it all and only wish that Monday was tomorrow :cute-chick:

    With a bit of luck and good fortune we should get our new chickens over the next few days. So all that remains is for me to finish building the chicken run.... :knit:

    :hyper_chick::hyper_chick::hyper_chick::hyper_chick::hyper_chick:

    Fortunately there's not too much left to do, but it'll be a swift trip to Homebase first thing in the morning.

    Chickens here we come :fingerscrossed:

    CW managed to get very friendly with her yesterday by managing to end up on all fours with the chicken sitting in the middle of her back....

    I agree Kate although, I would consider CD rather greedy but you know these IT bods have to have to be right at everything. Can't complain myself though because, as Matt decided he wanted 2 monitors on the pc at home. And it is great because it means we can have the girls up full screen on one monitor and the forum on the other. He said that some of the other guys he works with have 3 to 4 monitors, "now that, seems incredibly greedy!" :huh:

    I usually have three or four frames on top at a time, with others underneath or on minimise.

    Nice hat, CD. :D

    Blossom & Snow Drop, right? Which is which? I guess if you tell me the name of the one that looks like Milly, I'll be able to sort it out. Don't worry little Pumpkin - your name is unforgettable.
