Leanne Daharja replied to Leanne Daharja's discussion How can you tell the age of a chicken? in the group Poultry in Urbania
"Hi Dinah, Thanks for that really useful information. We have 13 chooks, and are still getting 4-5 eggs a day, so I'm guessing we're doing okay, then :-) I'm not desperate to cull them any time soon, as we keep a vegetarian home, so…"

"What breed are they? If you are still getting eggs from them at this time of year then chances are that are good layers and will moult (or are moulting) and will be back laying again later in the year. A range of hens coming in and out of laying is…"

"He went to live on a farm. Now one of his sons is looking after the hens, and I need to find a home for the other, as when you have two they like to sing duets ;) Can't eat him, he's a pet who likes to follow me around and digs up potatoes…"

"If their crowns get droopy, they are getting old. I have eight chickens and are getting 5 or 6 eggs most days so two will be in the pot soon."

Leanne Daharja replied to Vicki Hill's discussion Anyone with spare Soapnut or Soapberry seeds or seedlings? in the group New Zealand Seed and Plant Exchange
"Hi, Not much to do with soapberries and soapnuts, but to do with eczema. The following is what I found works well for me, and I thought I'd share. Hope I don't offend anyone for this being off topic. I get a bit of it, and instead of…"

"Hi Vicki, I think you're right. But I'm still suspecting we have AT LEAST a couple of "lay abouts" ;-) I'm not intending to chop any of them any time soon, but come Spring, if the lay percentage doesn't go up,…"

Sealander replied to Leanne Daharja's discussion Just how noisy *are* Roosters? in the group Poultry in Urbania
"Well, I timed my previous rooster for an hour one day and he crowed pretty much every 3 minutes on average for that hour. That's in the morning though, I don't hear much out of them in the afternoon unless a cat is staring at him or…"

Vicki Hill replied to Leanne Daharja's discussion Just how noisy *are* Roosters? in the group Poultry in Urbania
"Me again :) I've heard that it is very much dependant on the rooster ... just like our laughs are all different. We tried our luck with a cockerel when we first got our bantams but he soon headed back to his old home - he was very proud of his…"

"Hi Leanne, I'm just a newbie to chooks myself but I'm wondering whether some of your chooks might just be off the lay because they're coming into a moult for winter? No doubt some more experienced keepers will confirm this but if…"

Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
I have a potted garden (all in pots!) and am growing about 50 different edible food plant types. The reason for being potty (!!) is we're renting, and currently house-hunting. Most will go in the ground eventually.

I'm particularly interested in heirloom and unusual varieties, and am 100% organic :-)
