The Off Topic Forum

To quote Bill and Ted: "Be excellent to each other"


How old is this website ?Im guessing 10 11 years.

How old is this website I can remember coming on here back in the big freeze of 2010 it was quite busy in those days I often wonder what became of alot of the regular posters,are they still poultry keepers dead alive? there was alot of good advise to be had on here back then and a few complete headerballs to.

There doesn't seem to be much going on here now, rather disappointingly, I agree with you there.

This dam COVID is such a downer but hopefully it will soon pass - it is still nice to have a few poultry for a distraction ; I retired from work last year and still keep some Barnvelder hens ,Polish bantams and Gold laced Wyandotte bantams
