Love the names of your chickens!

It is shocking the noise they can make. Lulu in particular is a nervous chicken and will carry on alarmingly for 20 minutes at a time. Our poor neighbours!

Touch wood, the bladder business is the first time we've had to take Sophie to the vet for years and we're hoping this is just a one off. I can't imagine having to get pills or do injections on her regularly like you probably have to do with Patch. I'm not sure she would be able to take it.
