The lovely farm

My son, who is both learning and physically disabled is an animal lover and had a few pet hens on the Chorlton/Whalley Range borders. He had a bantam rooster which disturbed the neighbours and generated a letter from the council threatening to take all his pets away if he didn't have his rooster eut...

Re: Chorlton's high street gets stranger by the day

I first moved to Chorlton in 1978.. I don't remember much. I used to like the combination of the chip shop opposite the library and next to the laundrette which meant I could put my washing on, change my library books and eat my chips while I waited.

Re: Which Chorlton spot held the 1st live gig by the Bee Gee

he Crescents weren't great to live in. If there were ever lifts they never worked. They were designed for families so lugging a pram or a buggy up many flights of stairs didn't make life easy. The flats themselves were upside down so you entered on the bedroom level. It was a paradise for pigeons. T...

Re: Nearby bicycle shop?

Yes, Bike Barn is the way forward. I have been using a bike shop for repairs for years, and recently been told my bike is beyond repair as it wasn't cost effective. Arek from Bike Bran offered to have a look, he brought the bike back in fully working condition and hardly charged me anything. I have...

Put it back on the market. Some other sucker will fall for the "Leafy suburb" thing and take it off your hands before too long.

Re: Chick Chick Chicken Cam 2014

These are pics of the chicks as of today. 16 of them and all strong and healthy. Vivian Vance didn't make it. She just failed to thrive and died yesterday despite every effort to save her.

Re: Bars with a late licence?

And a really strong waiter. I had one of those packs that you can only get into with scissors. I asked him if he had any I could borrow and he just tore it apart with his bare hands. I was really impressed.

Re: Chick Chick Chicken Cam 2014

Don't pin your hopes on the little grey one (Vivian Vance) She is not doing well. She has fluffy feet and can't work out how to use them. Not sure how she will go on. Last one arrived this afternoon. One of the nurses arrived to see me just as she hatched and named her Clover. Thats 17 safely delive...

Re: Chick Chick Chicken Cam 2014

Shedloads of them here. They are starting to sing at about 3.20 at the moments. Lots of sparrows and chaffinches, swallows and blackbirds. We have a lot of collared doves as well which are noisy. This is also the time of year when we start to see bats in the garden when the sun sets. All in all no s...

Chick Chick Chicken Cam 2014

We didn't raise any babies last year. We had a lot of rescue chickens instead. This year we are, and they are due to hatch on 28/29 of this month. With any luck. It's always hard to imagine that an anonymous silent egg will produce a fluffy little spark of life. We have no idea what any of this year...

Re: Closing down... opening up

That health food shop has been there since the 70s. There used to be a butcher next door, If they spotted you going in there it made for rather an uncomfortable moment. Particularly if you had a pound of sausages in your shopping bag.
