    Beginners Chicken Keeping

    One of ours (the hand reared from the egg one) does like to perch on me and watch tv! Just bought timber and wire to build a new run for ours. Good news on the egg front Red, ours were small to start with but have got bigger. Can't beat the taste

    We just give our surplus eggs away (especially to the neighbours who may have to listen to them at 0645 when they want out their coop!!)

    I did and I have no issue with hunting for food or the control of pest species. BP was also a racist and a homophobe by todays standards.

    I've made no comment on the shooting of the snake. If thats whats done in America when they are clearing areas of snakes then so be it. My comment was purely on the cruelty of nailing it to a board and skinning it whilst its still alive. I cant see that as being defensible tbh.
