Hey any of you lot that remember me!
Looked at the forum after ages and sooooo glad to see it is back to normal without the acres of spam and old friends still helping each other...good to see you back here...
I've had a nightmare few years....as you know Mum died which knocked me terribly...then my partner's brother got diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease, so we spent a lot of time hotfooting it up and down to North Wales before he died a couple of weeks ago.
Anyway, on the hen front, I had two Black Rocks after all my ex-caged died - named them Galinda and Elphaba after the witches in Wicked - Galinda was a lovely bully and an awkward cow who died on my lap on my birthday on 4 Feb (imagine that Sandie!)
So I've had Elphaba on her own since Feb as we wanted to do major renovations to the coop (got any spare wood Kath!)
Anyway - coop renovations done and new rescues ordered for 1 December - free range mixed breeds - although I would prefer ex-caged they are all due for the same destination and I'm glad to rescue them... except Elphaba might not be (I think she's happy being Queen of her coop - not lonely at all...)
I missed you all and will catch up with all your news later...I promise
