Clucky's on the case about getting a poultry auction back in Shrewsbury - it's about time, I reckon :D

In the meantime, would anyone be interested in an online Poultry Club for our area? I'm not even sure whether there's any need, it was just a thought. There's a lot of people round here that keep chooks - it would be nice to be in touch with each other, especially if AI takes hold and Defra come calling - strength in numbers, as it were.

We could have a database with lists suppliers, h/eggs available etc.

I'm used to running Yahoo groups so I'd be happy to set one up. Any ideas both for and against would be very useful :)

Oh, and I'm including people from outside the area such as Rubychick in this :D I just thought I'd keep the name to a restricted area as there are some poultry clubs around the country (real-life ones as opposed to online tho) and I don't want to tread on toes :)

I MUST POINT OUT - I'm not suggesting anything that overlaps with PK, just a little forum where local peeps can swap info. I'd advertise it on Freecycle and stuff like that, so it wouldn't just be people from here.

If you're gonna be on the radio Fenn :wink: then get a mention in there too :)

I've already shoehorned in the info about my chickens in the brief chat I had with the producer today :D

I'm not so green as cabbage-looking, me ;) :twisted:

OK Fenn, I've missed/lost the plot. Probably one of the times this machine decided that it needed to ask me to check I was connected to the internet and then cut off all communication.
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.

Brief precis for Henny -

Clucky's on a one-woman mission to bully our local livestock market into holding poultry auctions.

Because there's a lot of poultry-keepers in Shrewsbury, I thought it might be nice to band together a bit. Not sure whether it's worth doing or not tho, as those of us who're really keen use PK anyway.

I'm sure that would never happen, it's lovely to hear/speak to people wherever they are! :D

Wot and miss my favourite PK fix. NEVER :D


Post by Fenn » 13 Mar 2007, 09:13


It's not meant to replace PK at all - it's just a base for local info - suppliers, breeders, etc.
I thought it would be good to have a connection to other poultry keepers in our area - strength in numbers an' all that :D

Berlimey no, it's not anything like PK, nor would that ever be intended! I looooooove PK, nothing's dragging me away from here!!! :twisted:
