Thanks Lisa.  I gave the bark a little scratch today and it was green underneath-yay!

Mine are planted out, they were outgrowing their pots.

I was on about my toddler being a pain not my husband, he's better trained! 

We already have jackdaws, crows and magpies that flick mulch and poo everywhere so a couple more birds won't make much difference. Definitely having two girls as we don't want to be antisocial.  The hybrid breed we're getting the girl chicks are a different colour so you can easily separate them as chicks.

Thanks Dove, that is a relief as you hear a lot of people moaning about how you can't have a garden and chickens.  I'm sure they will be less bother than our two year old!

My son's nursery have just had some chicks and are now looking to re-home them. We have agreed to have two and have done all the research etc.  Their run will be on wood/stone chips but they will be allowed to roam for a bit each day hopefully.  Our garden is roughly 100 feet long with grass, patio, shrubs, trees.  What kind of garden damage can I expect and how can I reduce it?

Does anyone know when European Spindle starts to come into leaf?  Mine look dead!

Have I killed my newly planted hawthorn hedge?

Mine is coming into leaf now and it was put in this winter. I am in Leicestershire.
