    General consensus from the ladies at the bottom of the garden? Not impressed!

    First morning, we had to dig the coop out of the snow - honestly, it looked like a little igloo and was really warm and snug inside. Luckily, I had draped an old shower curtain over the lot so that made things a lot easier once I got to it.

    Rosie bundled out the coop in her usual fashion, couldn't find the ramp so belly flopped off the platform into 5 inches of snow and screamed until I picked her up and put her back in the coop.

    The other three stood at the door oohing and aahing while I swept out a scratch patch for them. They looked so pathetic standing out in the snow and their water bowl kept freezing over so they have had a week of warm porridge for breakfast. Made with half water, half milk at least I could be sure they were getting their fluids. By the end of the week, hubby was sneaking a small handful of sultanas into the porridge!

    Still, Rosie rewarded our servitude by presenting us with an egg on Christmas day. I hadn't expected her to lay again this year after being ill, then going broody then moulting. She hasn't laid since about the middle of August.

    Is anyone else's birds still laying? All of ours are but I thought they were supposed to have stopped by now.

    I have one little chicken that is still laying,
    Volka...and 2 of my Silkies are still laying. I wish they would all stop for a while, at least till this cold weather is over. It takes all they have just to stay alive in this cold.

    As someone who doesn't have chickens, I loved reading your story of hens meeting the snow! It must've been very funny. I thought about bringing some in to show my rats but they'd probably catch a cold and I'd end up at the vets - again.

    Hencam seem to know all about snow - they seem to be getting lots of it.

    I'm a bot concerned about the gilrs water, the indoor water is now freezing as well, does anyone have any ideas?? I've bought 9 more bales 1/2 bales of straw and but them against the walls and more on the floor. I'm also going to put carboard up against the chicken wire between out bit and their's to try and keep the heat in a bit for them. Anyone any ideas on how to stop water freezing, the only thing I can think off is to put a hot water bottle underneath it?

    Dont forget warm or hot water tends to freeze quicker than cold water. I put whole apple cider vinegar in my girls water and that helps a bit. I do give mine warm water in the mornings but am at home so can check it through out the day.

    we just have a 2 bowl system - everytime one of us goes down to the garden, we take a fresh bowl of warm water with us and bring the frozen one back. At least with the watery porridge, it doesn't stay in the dish long enough for it too freeze so I know the girls have had their fluids.

    There is a very good product that rat owners use to warm up sick ratties. They are non-toxic and the rats don't chew them too badly so they should stand up to hens! http://www.ratwarehouse.com/shop_detail.php?item=167&cat=11 Bit pricey though!

    They sound good CC and should do the trick... good you were able to get your favourite colour as well.

    I made some wheat bags last year as my bought one was giving up the ghost. I just used some of the hens wheat and a peice of left over curtain material. They work a treat..... in Microwave for three minutes and they are lovely and hot. I take one up to bed with me and use as a hot water bottle. Good thing is if they get a hole in them you dont start to worry you might have wet the bed ha ha.

    three or 4 of mine perch and the rest of htem sit in the sawdust in the nest boxes. I bought extra straw bales at eh weekend and piled them up by the door so the window doens't come direclty in. The fgirls were funny this monring when I let them out, I think one of the neighbours had been up yesterday and tried the tap on one of the waterbutts, needless to say it had melted a bit dripped out of the tap and then frozen again, four od the girls came running round the corner after me when I'd let them out and all skidded over, there were wings and legs all over the place I havne't laughed so much in ages.

    Haven't read all the thread (sorry) but if you are concerned about the chickens' water, melt the ice in the morning and put luke warm (not hot!!) water in the container, and do the same a few hours before it gets dark as well if possible. That should be fine for your chucks :)

    Nanny North the font af Wisdom. Well I've just finished a cross stitch and washed it ready for taking it to the framers tomorrow. Its for Steve and Jan's daughter who will behaving twins next Friday - if they haven't decided to come on thier own by then. Theyv'e already got a little boy called Danielle - I did him an alphabet which took way longer than I thought it would. He didn't get it until he was about a month old. So I've done the twins a pooh bear height chart and a 1-9 numbers so that can all use them to learn. Once the numbers is at the framers I need to get the height chart made up. I'll try and take some pics of them before I pass them on.

I think I cross stitched my self out as I was doing so much of it a couple of years ago. I am knitting Grandad North an arran jumper at the moment so as soon as I finish that I will get it out again.

    I've just had the local council offering to put free loft insulation in for me - into my house that is.
    I refused as I can't face having to move fifty years of treasure up there. That is enough insulation anyway.

    I have been trying to get some clear big polybags to pack it in so I can see what's what rather than the black ones I have been using.

    Thats a good idea Ollie. We are having our boiler moved into the loft sometime soon so I got to get up there and sort out one side of it. It will give us a lot more room in the bathroom.

    I know it is awful isn't it I am a terrible hoarder and hate throwing any thing away. I bet if I do take the plunge and ditch something I need it a few weeks later.

    Me too Lee! I have a couple of boxes that I keep thinking I could put in the back of a cupboard, then I get it out, have a look through, and put it back where it was. I might want to get the stuff one day - not that I can remember what's in 'em!

    REally CC? And there was me thinking you'd downsized from a castle but couldn't bear to be parted from any of it!

    No, I wouldn't live in a castle - couldn't be bothered to clean it! I often wonder why a couple with no brats (like these footballers, frinstance)would want a seven- or eight-bedroomed house...

    That would be so cool you could have a fab game of hide and seek.
