    Keeper of the hens

    Hi Joanne,

    We used to feed our chooks on a purely corn-based diet, but then we switched to layers pellets. Layers pellets have the added bonus of containing all the nutrients your chooks need, and supporting healthy egg production. However, chickens shouldn't eat just layers pellets, as that can cause excess diarrhea. It's good that your girls get corn and pellets - it might just be that they do eat a few layers pellets, but don't eat it all?

    As for the egg-laying,depending on how much sun-light you are getting at the moment, they might have stopped laying for the winter. Chickens need 14 hours of sunlight a day to be able to produce eggs, which is why chickens in England stop laying for all of winter!! As for the really small eggs, that could be a sign your girl is getting ready to stop for winter, so i wouldn't worry about it :)

    All chickens do 'runny poo's' - i think it's something like every third poop that comes out of a chicken is runny...nice, i know! :D

    However, diarrhea can be caused by eating too many worms or slugs (nothing to worry about) or, as previously mentioned, purely eating layers pellets - which i don't think is the case here, as your girls are fed corn and have enough room to roam so they can dig up tasty bugs :)

    If all your chickens' poops are runny then it could be a medical condition and might be worth getting it checked out, but rest assured it IS normal for the majority of chicken poops to be runny!

    Hope this helps,
    Scarlet

    Chicken poo's aren't runny (why the heck we having this conversation?!?! :D ) They're...kind of solid. You can pick them up (to clean out the nest box or whatever) and they're just kind of...squishy :x

    Also, chickens don't urinate!! Their poops, which are brown, have white bits in them - and that is their urine. It's solid.

    I always thought that was really weird, so just thought i would share ;)

    I was out hiking around with my friend Gloria (from Whidbey not New Mexico :) ) this afternoon and 4 eagles started dive bombing each other (and us by accident.) All very exciting - including our worry that they might bomb us with something else in their own excitment. Ever been pooped on by an eagle? Its like getting hit with a quart of white paint...

    I've got 3 cats, 2 (adult) sons, and my first granddaughter on the way! We moved house in April and the garden is not that big and completely weeds! The neighbours on the one side are OK, but the other side is sold but still empty at the mo. My husband wouldn't appreciate me getting chickens, though his sister (who lives just a couple of miles away) is growing her own veg etc and he's thinking of doing the same, so perhaps in a few years ... !!!

    Hello everyone

    Love reading all the bit and pieces on the different forums - and when I noticed someone from the West Midlands asking for other other hen keepers I though I should take the plunge and say hi!
    I am from Wolverhampton, and have been keeping bantams for two and a half years now - my fella surprised me with 3 bantam hens, he'd even managed to build the hen house and run in complete secrecy.
    I don't think he realised just how enthusiastic a person can get about them. I even go as far as moving them off the garden and up onto the patio in the winter - although there are practical reasons as well (lawn resembling a mudbath, dark nights etc).
    Since arriving I have gained a cockerel, who is a very proud cuckoo pekin, and also lost 2 of the original hens - one vanished without trace and the other I found 'flipped over' a few weeks ago.
    The good thing is before I lost the second hen I had let her hatch some eggs, and gained another 2 hens.
    I can honestly say that I did not think sitting watching hens scratching about would be quite as entertaining as it is, and they have very individual personalities.
    Note to Joanne - my work colleagues/neighbours etc also refer to us as Tom and Barbara as I also grow a few veg, and also knit, sew, bake etc.
    I just wish I looked more like Felicity Kendal!!!!!

    My kitten was spayed the other day but is doing well she cant wait to go back outside and play with the hens only another week to go.

    We have been looking into getting some ex battery hens from our local farm they are selling them for £1.00 in february at 57 weeks old, has anyone got any views on this, we currently have 2 very big hybrids who free range but are wrecking the garden so we are going to convert an old shed and put an enclosed run around it, how big should we make the run?

    Keep runny poo alive!

    Sorry :)

    Keeper of the hens

    Eva was 'rescued' from my friend's house. We went over with a big box and found this scawny, bald, weak little hen hiding in a bush. We fished her out and put her in the box, and by this time Eva was screaming. Taking her home we had to put her in a rabbit run which was only a few meters long, but it was the only thing she had. Two days later we put her in the big coop with the girls, but seperated them so they could still see each other. Then i spent ages taming her and getting her used to people so that when we did put the girls together Eva would be able to escape onto my lap, and i would be able to pick her up and take her away from the chucks without scaring her. I think that was very important, as otherwise i wouldn't have been able to get near her.

    Then, about four weeks after she moved into the big coop, we removed Eva's barrier and let the other hens "say hello" - it was awful to watch them bullying her, but it didn't last long, apart from Milly's life-long jealousy of Eva. I think that's one of the only times i have been angry with Milly.

    Jo - make the run as big as you can! Our run is 10ft long, 5ft wide and just under 5ft high. But make your run as big as possible, your chucks will appreciate it :) Are your ex-battery's gonna be living with your over chickens? If they are, make sure the battery hens are strong enough to be with the other chickens before you put them together. Eva was really weak when we first got her, so we had to give her time to build her strength up.

    Educating people about hens is a key factor. People are taught that animals have no feelings and no emotions, so turn a blind eye to what happens to them on the way to the dinner table. You need to make them think...and it can be done.

    My hubby Donald grew up on a chicken farm in California, drove the truck to take the hens to the slaughter house even. He never gave it a second thought..till he met me and my little Macaw Kakapoo. After being around my little bird, he understood that birds think, feel, and understand what goes on around them. Don now feels it is his mission in life to rescue as many chickens as possible. Our first was a ratty looking old rooster that we named "Cogburn" that he found at a feed store. We now have 25 spoiled chickens who follow us around the field. I looked like the Pied Piper only with chicken instead of rats.

    Just an ordinary car, i think...i'll have to try find thr website and post the link...I did save this quote though:

    "CHICKEN MANURE FUEL: "Put a chicken in your tank" may never match the
    zap of Esso's "Put a tiger in your tank" slogan. But British
    inventor, Harold Bate, will tell you you that chicken power will run
    car faster, cleaner, and better than gasoline.

    Bate has found a way of converting chicken droppings in gas - and
    runs his automobile on it.

    By processing methane gas from rotted chicken manure and feeding it
    to the engine through a special device he invented, Bate says, he has
    managed to drive his 1953 Hillman at speeds up to 75 m.p.h. without
    the use of gasoline."

    Crazy stuff!

    Lanz's 'Studies on Psychotherapy And Its Efficacy When Conducted By Practitioners With Runnypoophobia' (London: Runnypoo Press) 1917 might shed some light on your problem...:rolling:

    CC - you DESERVE to have your head rolling back and forth on the floor like that!

    And then Kate comes along with her post and makes a whole new sentence up about it. An ENTIRE sentence of nouns indicating defecation. Well - and THREE exclamation points.

    What problem? I don't have a problem.

    But speaking of such things-Kate did you read the post where I asked if you had smelled Caitlyn's head yet? Because I love that smell. CC went ballistic !!!

    I will try to remember not to sniff her nappy in public, but I have already sniffed her head and you're right Diane, its a great smell!! Its the best bit to sniff because it doesn't have anything dirty on it - no milk, poo, wee, nothing!!!!

    Now getting this thread back onto topic......

    We all know that our flying sister birds all poo over our cars when we park them up in the street and under trees and the pooactually fades and damages thre paintwork... Does Chicken poo actually cause problems like that ?


    Also out of interest.. On the M40 motorway that goes from London to Birmingham via Oxford has a famous landmark.. between the Bucks boarder at J5 and Oxon at Junction 6 we have the Canyon... where huge amounts of rock and stone and stuff were blasted away through the Hill to allow the Motorway to pass through.. Well in order to try and stop errosion and to bond the stone together CHICKEN Poo was sprayed all over the place to encourage growth... the canyon is now known locally as Chicken S**t Canyon.

    Its a definite chapter for the book Kate. "Chicken Facts of Questionable Interest" (Each of which I find profoundly interesting. And I'm guessing thats true for most of my peers in this chicken-addicted community...?)

    CC that is totally cool. Thank you for telling me that. Very cool. And just when I was thinking of making a pronouncement about never returning to Runny Poo...

    Its a beautiful little valley. Its funny how muscular instinct works though. I know that you all drive on the wrong - alright, opposite - side of the road. I've driven around London even. Well, been driven. But when I force myself to look at the cars on the M40 there (see *Teach,* I'm beginning to use my new found knowledge) - my heart leaps into my throat.

    God i have loads of useless facts about chickens - that one shall definitely be added to the collection, wazza :D

    Here's one for the Runny Poo thread: chicken poo works as an incredibly effective paint/varnish stripper. If anybody wants some chicken poo to remove any varnish/paint, send us an email our way and we'll email it over :rolling: :fingersear:

    And wazza...you can't talk about LUMPINESS in the RUNNY poo thread!!!

    My Hubby would never drive in London. My Mum lived in Chiswick part of London and we would leave the car there and go by tube for in city visits.
    Then I had a colleague who worked in London (district midwife). She advised me "Just don't use your rear view mirror and you will be OK"
    I tried it and it worked. Though very scary..

    What is the history behind this difference in roadway usage anyway?
