    I'll find them again to repost their mega cuteness. I'm so happy that I didn't lose all their photos.

    I have 3 chickens in my garden- I thought they were quite boring before we had them. But its so nice to be chased around the garden in the morning and discover little eggs

    Their names are Happy, Henna & Cuckoo.
    Though we have had 4 others which didn't survive long and for no particular reason.

    Get a few more and cram them into your blacked-out shed. Ensure they are constantly fed a high fat/protein diet with plenty of growth hormones. This way you will get the most eggs/meat in the least amount of time.

    P.S. Don't forget to clip off their beaks and claws (no anaethetic, think of the £££) and take out any dead ASAP.

    Give it a go..
    I am giving it a go.
    You can save lives and get free chickens at

    http://bhwt.org.uk/cms/

    Hopefully you will never regret it.
    All you need is just scure garden, and a little box for them to go in at night.
    Any life you provide them will be better than they have ever had. Watch below you get an idea:

    erm..we are not allowed to treat animals badly at all, battery farming/ hunting for fun sports/ betting on animals to fight eachother etc is not allowed at all.

    I am a muslim, prophet mohamad (who we believe was the last messenger after jesus) had a lot of respect and love for animals and would get very angry for bad treatment of animals.

    Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whilst a man was walking on the road, he became very thirsty. He found a well so he went down into it and drank, then he came out. There he saw a dog that was panting and biting the ground out of thirst. The man said: this dog is feeling the same thirst that I felt. So he went back down into the well and filled his shoe with water, then he held it in his mouth until he climbed back up, and he gave the water to the dog. Allaah appreciated (his action) and forgave him.” They said: O Messenger of Allaah, will we have reward with regard to these animals? He said: “In every living thing there is reward.”

    There are many more stories -in a nut shell animal have to treated with love!!
    Last few days, i have done lots and lots of research on chickens and hoping I will be able to lookafter the ex battery hens. I am suppose to get 6!!!.:rolleyes:

    I know i said it would be three...but it kinda got doubled after parents agreed!

    oh wow!
