  1. okay so we think it may be a boy! Oh no, well I just put a nest box in so I guess I'll find out sooner or later! How long roughly do they start laying eggs after you put in a nest box?

  4. Hey Finnie! Yeah it has been a while! my budgie to me was always a boy because that's what I'd been told, but when ?his? cere finally changed colour to brown I was a bit confused! So I thought I better check it out! And I can't believe you remembered that! that's fantastic, my puppy is good also, she is 2 1/2 yrs old and very playful still! And my other boy is 8yrs. Hey Nadene! Dachshunds are brilliant, what colours do you have? I would attach a picture but I've forgotten how to?
  5. Hello, I have two budgies, I was told when they were babies they were both boys, this was based on their baby ceres, one of the birds ceres turned blue after 6 months and the other did not change from its pinky coloured baby cere until now, and it is 3 yrs old, it has turned brown, what does this mean? Cheers!

  24. Thanks for the nice comments everyone !!! they are doing really well, they like their coop especially the run and they love to eat!! Hi Dellouisa thanks for the nice words! well i found this site which gives details of silkie chicken breeders, ill grab the link for you... http://silkiebreeders.webs.com/breedersdirectory.htm its a breeders directory, so hopefully there is a breeder close to you, they are a fantastic breed, gentle, clean and easy to handle and pat =] Thanks Kaz i thought their names were fitting whenever i get a pet i wait until i get them and look at them to see what they look like =] so there name suits their character They are rachelm!! i just want to hug them, so soft
  25. Well I have finally managed to convince my mum that chickens are a good pet to have! And after much deliberation she allowed me to get two chickens! I had my heart set on a silkie as they just look so peculiar and hilarious, yet adorable So I found a good breeder, and on the weekend I bought my first pair of chickens! They are two lovely pullets, named maggie and myrtle, and they are only 12 weeks old Maggie is the darker looking one, and myrtle is the lighter one! Myrtle is a partridge, and Maggie is what the breeder said "call it what you like". He told me its a new colour he is working on, but he has managed to acheive it by pure breeding silkies! so that is all i have on my spectacularly bizarre birds! and i cant wait until they start laying eggs!
