Hi there anyone interested in donating some hen pictures for a calender ...maybe have to be perpetual now...for a charity like BHWT, and someone printing it sustainably with the proceeds we buy it (and friends) and rest goes to the charity?

    Yes - I'd be interested, especially since being coached in photo posting techniques!

    Great! I thought we could all donate 12 pictures one for each month, themed, and depending on how many join in, there would be at least one pic each and then maybe one more?
    I have a perpetual monkey sanctuary calender so I will go the them first and see where they had it printed(they are very sustainable there), and print it up for all of you to buy for your friends and family.Iwill cover all the costs and the rest will go to BHWT. As it doesn't matter where you start in the year(there are no days, just dates) it can be given anytime...What do you think?
    I would post on pm and then Ill get in touch by email just in case we have issues on here.
    all good
    Merry Christmas!

    I think the BHWT did a photo thing a little while ago to decorate their new lorry...pretty sure they were inundated.
    There is no shortage of great photos just a shortage of technical know how to get them published :o)

    I at present dont have any chooks. I ahd a problem with mites and lice and did the next best think. I had to eradicate all my chooks from the pen for 12months, so I miss my chooks terribly, but am plannng in the next few months of replacing them I might get some different
    chooks to what I had in the past. I do have a few photos of my old girls and there were plenty of them some 400 hens or so and around 50 roosters. We used to wake up to them crowing every morning so I do miss that now and then. But mind you it has taken all of 12 months not to miss them. But I like to go down to the chook pen of an afternoon and collect the eggs, all I can do at present is go down there water the fig tree and clean the place up in readiness for my new batch. I shall have to wait till it cools down, as we are having some where in the vicinity of 45 degrees celcius which is really hot, well over 100 farenheit. I can PM you with my email address.

    Well, ladies, this could get interresting? You do realise that you need to have some "risky" pics for it to have a bigger audience (men), I hope. Hmmmm..., I might just buy one........

    But true? It is hard competition in that market, and you will need the "wow"-factor to sell.

    Please sign me up. All our hennies have come from them and without their efforts a lot more girls would be pet food! They have also done so much work to make everyone aware of hen and egg issues in this country. Great idea.

    Not saucy I'm afraid but how about a pic of Geoffrey (ex batt hen, named by my daughter - don't ask...) who decided to settle down in the washing machine - it was during the snow and we had brought her inside because she looked off colour!

    I am sure I would be well suited as a TOYBOY. I am ONLY 59! And childish.

    I've just signed my husband up for that! That's definately "hentertainment"!

    Have you seen how many "views" this thread has had. Just think if only half of them bought a calendar that would be a good start!
