"I have a friend who has two Araucana hens that are about 4-5 years old and not laying.  She wants to get more chickens, but lives in surburbia so can't get anymore until she cuts down the number she has.  I'm trying to find…"

Jewels Annabell replied to Nigel Thomson's discussion Dealing with a muddy run in the group Poultry in Urbania
"Have the same problem with a bigger area, and it is slushy!  I have been putting lawn clippings and leaves, etc, there, but that's a temporary fix...  I have also bought a bag of mulch, which I use in their enclosed run (other space…"

Jewels Annabell commented on Janet Luke's group Poultry in Urbania
"The fact that it isn't solid and has spikes might deter them from jumping, but four foot doesn't sound very high if it doesn't.  Especially as you've already had trouble and whatever dog did it, knows you have chickens…"

Jewels Annabell commented on Janet Luke's group Poultry in Urbania
"That's really sad Rudi, I'm sorry that happened to you!  I have a fully fenced yard in Howick, a very sturdy chicken run and a dog of my own that would probably let me know what was going on... Hope you find out who did it, and…"

Jewels Annabell commented on Janet Luke's group Poultry in Urbania
"Hey Ricardo, there are plenty of runs on TradeMe with no floor (that's where I got mine), but I'm not sure it's a good idea to have no floor in the coop (or if they even come that way).  That would make for a very cold, damp…"

Jewels Annabell commented on Janet Luke's group Poultry in Urbania
"I introduced two new hens to one existing chicken - she used to chase the cats so thought I should get two who could take turns being henpecked! haha.  It took a bit of time but they all got used to each other.  I used to stay after I…"

Jewels Annabell replied to Elizabeth Ashby's discussion Why Raw Milk? in the group Raw Organic Milk
"I'm a "wanna-be" raw milk user - I have yet to find a local supply, but my reasons were wanting to are this:  I want to make my own cheese as you do, and also because I think that we eat and drink far too many processed…"

I only have a small yard so try and grow the things that we like (tomatoes, silverbeet, etc), and things that will preserve well (dead keen to try bottling!), I also have some fruit trees (feijoa, plum, lemon, blueberries, mandarins) and best of all, even in suburbia I have chickens :-) I would love to become as self-sufficient as possible (the long term plan is to buy some land), and learn some new skills in the process. Would love to meet some like-minded people (half my friends think I'm strange! Haha)
