I also waited for 3 weeks for my chicken drinker that I ordered from eBay. After contacting the seller on a number of occasions asking why I'd not received it yet I managed to get a full refund from him. I saw the same model in our local garden centre for a lower price so purchased that last weekend. And here it is...
So while I've been waiting for my chooks to arrive I've been thinking about how they are going to change our family life. I'm hoping that the feeling of doing a good deed by giving them a happy retirement and the pleasure of eating fresh eggs will outweigh the getting up literally at the crack of dawn to let them out.
I've also been reading a little bit about the other work that the British Hen Welfare Trust do, and the importance of using free range eggs - shown in the pictures below.
