    Thanks Kath...yeah OK...Mum's alzeimers is kicking in worse by the day (I will never have another normal conversation with her again...am learning loads more about the family...unfortunately I will never know if it's true or not!!!)...had a few deaths in the family which included coroner's inquests...but decided I need my life back too now...chooks are so relaxing...how's my mate Georgie? M ~:>

    Georgie is doing just fine ....im lucky not to have lost her when the 3 bluebelles decided to attack her at the same time   but they are still segregated - cant take that chance again ...if it had been one of the smaller ones they would have killed her .
    the bluebelles are happy enough where they are and the others are happy they dont have to worry about them
    ill give georgie a grape off you later ...she still comes into the kitchen for one

    Poor love!...she could come for a holiday!...she could teach Galinda a lesson or 2 regardless of how small she is!...A HUGE grape is what she deserves...but I thought she just got a grape when she laid an egg - is that happening?! ~:>
  • undautriundautri Senior Member
    no eggs at all this year and no broodiness either ...still comes in for a grape though when shes feeling peckish :)

    So glad to hear that Yorkie is still around.  It's about time another exbat got a good innings.

    She's amazing!...and such a lovely personality...how's your lot doing Helen?  ~:> M

    Just taken on 3 batties in October from the BHWT.  Sadly, one had a big egg mass and didn't make it, but the other two are really fun and thriving.

    That's lovely Helen - at least the little one knew some love and cuddles in her little life, again thanks you you! What are the other two rampagers called?  ~:> M

    Marie it was quite heart breaking when we got her home.  I was thinking it might be kinder to kill her there & then, but I have seen even bigger (egg mass) girls than her in the past, 'freshly rescued', so we decided to give her a few days and see how she went.  We called her 'Dusty', hoping that she would at least get to have a dust bath before she went; she did; and a sun bathe too! 
    Sadly hers was one of the worst cases I have seen inside though :-&

    The other two are called Pumpkin and Ivy.  Pumpkin is already showing signs of being super clever...



    Here's Dusty enjoying a sunbathe:

    And here is a pic which compares her abdomen to the others:

    Dusty's huge poor love...but she looked happy if only for a little while! Looking forward to Pumpkin's 'tests'...If Pumpkin's that clever I feel you having The Times pursuing you this time (I might phone them!)...you really will be my claim to fame...ker-ching!!!...Ivy can just amble round with the others as normal and live a Nelly Dean life...sorted!!! ~:> M
