Hi, We :D have lived on a lifestyle block for about 8 years and previously had neighbours grazing our land, we moved recently and I decided to take the plunge and get some stock and learn. We have 4 new lambs with their mums from my neighbour accross the road, we will take mums home in a couple of months and I picked up 3 calves on Tuesday, so am having fun with my children feeding them.

Welcome aboard Pholly. I thought Dairy Flat had been swallowed up by urban sprawl years ago.

Chickens Spoook, the little b*stards have attacked and killed mine and my neighbours chickens :(

I was told that they will travel upto 7kms of the nest for food, unfortunately we don't know where the nest/base is (if they have one) or how many there are, so i'd definately look at making sure where yours sleep is rodent proof, cos they will get into small gaps, climb well, swim and will attack them at height. :(

Yes you are probably right, we were lucky to find 14 acres especially with a cow shed :)

Hi, finally got back on after a hectic week of scoures! Thanks so much for all your help, Star has recovered now and is wandering around outside the shed but I had to call Stuart out again this morning, this time for All Black, who couldn't stand up yesterday and after a day of tube feeds and injections looked half dead this morning, but he was on his feet by lunchtime and walking after me for a feed which was great, so hopefully they are all healthy again. :D
