@illawarra_cottage_and_garden You couldn't pay me to go back Kath, too horrible! I felt fine at Port Arthur, but that was years ago before I knew two of my ancestors had been through there, might be a bit more thoughtful these days!! Xxx

You know I don’t think I’ve ever been there. It’s definitely on the list though. Hope it was somewhat enjoyable outing.

@wilsons_river_cottage It was certainly a fascinating part of our history and a mysterious old building, very gothic and freaky, we also got locked up in the lock house which was a bit of fun! Glad I did it, not going back! Xxx

@mezzarmsden It is really interesting Mezz and freaky, although full of Rugrats in the school hols! I wouldn’t go there alone!! Seeing where Ned Kelly was hung gave me a chill!! Xxx

@valentineswain She’s a silver spangled Hamburgh, I don’t think we have Apoenzellars here in Aust but they do look quite similar!

Ok thanks I brought 2 silver spangled appenzeller and 1 of them is a cockeral so I don't know what to do x

@valentineswain Are you allowed to have cockerels in your area? If you were hoping for a pullet you might be able to call the breeder and swap him for a female. You are set up with a nice pair to breed from if you want to go down that road? Xx

Yh I was thinking about doing that because it could be a good learning curve for me but the problem is the 2 new arrivals are with 6 other large foul and the girls don't like the little boy so I feel bad and have to separate them. The small female pullet is getting worse in behaviour and I don't want her to be aggressive x

Brilliant the 2 appenzeller escaped last night and I have no clue where they are if they are alive or how they got out I wasn't a fox they must of flew away do u think they will come back

@valentineswain Oh no, that’s a shock! If they got a fright they might have flown up and hidden in some trees, I think all you can do is see if they calm down and come home. If you walk around calling them and shaking a bucket that might tempt them out if they are hiding! Good luck and fingers crossed!

I have to swap one of the appenzellers bcse it's a male and they said when I brought them that they are 100% hens but they were wrong ... lifes everyday chores 😂😂😂
