That just reminded me.... some of our family (and a friend) seem to have got the wrong end of the sick with this eco lark...Ratty wrote:No one I know (who is not on here) has got their heads around wee wipes yet. Why would I do that?! And why do I want to take on some scraggy ugly looking ex battery hens?
My sister said that I wouldn't want an ex-battery hen as I wouldn't be able to go out to the garden with my wicker basket and scatter the organic grain down for the beautiful chickens.... She really doesn't get it does she? (to add - my sister is a very down to earth, eco friendly, slumming it kind of a lady - in a good way) My poin is that some folks seem to think we are in this for the looks??? It can be really offensive.
