    Good day all!

    163 beers, bejesus, that'd take some getting through....Reads like a pretty lively weekend, shame about the obvious bad bits!!

    Any chance you can get some coats for the bald chooks....

    dont chooks give off loads of heat? i've seen permaculture designs there the glass house backs on to the chook house so the chooks can help keep the glass house warm at night. some of them do end up looking like SPCA cases when they are moulting. our horse is moulting too as it is spring. my middle child brushed her the other day. it looked like there was a deflated horse on the ground so much hair came off and she still looked like a threadbare old carpet!

    It is true that it would take a while to get through all of the beers.... at a right pretty expense as well....

    No coats for chooks, I'm afraid...

    yes, they have a very high metabolism, which is why they are almost always eating...... and look really ratty when they molt..

    I'd say, it takes all the fun out of drinking having to pay for it!

    interesting. our flightless nocturnal parrot, the kakapo, who was here of recent at the ecosanctuary apparently has the slowest metabolism of any bird ever measured. they're vegetarian so they are always eating too.

    You pay for it one way or another.....

    There are "coats" for hens, but their purpose is to prevent the hens back feathers from getting ripped up and torn out when mounted by a rooster... but they don't keep the hen warm, just protect feathers from being ripped out.
