Bjay, are you having doggy troubles? You probably said so sometime and I missed it. I'm no dog psychologist but I have dogs!

Yes Becks this one is from Morrisons- spelt bread.

b-r-e-a-d is a very peculiar way to spell Morrisons ;- )

Thanks Geoff. In some ways I think they deserve to have the fruits of their labours! Anyway, I'll have a read later.

Yes, Geoff. They peck it open and slurp up the contents. I knew it must be happening but actually caught them slurping a couple of days ago. I don't mind them having the odd one - they are thin shelled and occasionally break - but it appears to be a deliberate daily act now.

Hello forkers. Welcome Norm. Nice to see you David. I only change half my name otherwise I forget who I am too ;- )

Have been freezing my fingers off in dog-rescue office this morning. Stopped off at sarnie shop for hot coffee and warm baguette with hot bacon and melted cheese. Feeling a bit more human now.

Choccy - a sunshine.

Jess - tiara and jelly babies

My chickens have a) survived the cold night and b) developed a taste for eggs. They have one a day and, if I'm lucky and a second is laid, I get one too.

All I did last year, Lottie, was to cover the house with sheets of bubble wrap and old curtains on top of that. They seem happy enough to potter round in the daytime, though it's not actually below 0 now. I think I'll probably chuck the curtains etc ovet the house tonight, it can't do any harm.

Oh, right. I give mine corn last thing as well and sometimes mix up some of their pellets with a little warm water so thaey have a porridgey mash for bedtime.

They'll probably be watching the Eggs Factor when they turn in early.  Or the readers among them might like Hatch 22.

Gary, don't give Geoff ideas!

Hello Geoff. Congrats on the Christmas smiley outcome.

May I ask you and all the chicken-keepers at what point do you decide to insulate the chicken house? I have had a couple of nights in a row at below 0 degrees. Last year there were 4 girls so they had more chance of keeping each other warm, now with only 2 and Aggie being such a skinny bird I was wondering if they will get too cold.
