  1. Yes indeed. However there is a difference between a chicken coop and an outside chicken run which is what the OP is asking about. Unless you are prepared to regularly cut the wing feathers of the chickens then you will need a fence at least 2.5 metres high, we regularly lost chickens and ducks to the chicken eating neighbour when we relied on a 1.5 metre wall. By preference I would use concrete posts and a robust plastic netting (we used the blue stuff) but wooden posts would be OK for two - three years. We also made sure that the netting was weighed down at the bottom, that's where the chicks escape, strangle themselves, can't get back in. Anyway, don't listen to me, have a look at "backyard chickens" they have loads of info. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  3. In my experience, if RIR are in situ, they will be very aggressively defensive against newcomers.
  4. Having your private insurance with the same company as the one covering your government insurance makes things MUCH easier if you ever need to use it. AS I recently found out. Your private insurance agent won't help with the government insurance, even more run around at a time when you don't need it.

  6. Dunno, what's this "boring" word mean? Work around the house, looking after animals and yoursel, writing a book, plenty to do. If getting up early (which apparently means you can't get 8 hours sleep) is your main problem, then, yes, stay out of the rural parts of any country.
  7. From my own experience, goats are b****rs, true escape artists, they will eat fences and consistently end up in the neighbour's vegetable (or flower) garden. I really enjoyed these animals but without building. 6 foot wall around everything vaguely eatable I don't think I'll be doing it again.
  8. I shipped a large box filled with used tools, clearly declared as "personal household items". No problems. Your shipper would be able to advise, they must have an agent at the port of entry. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  9. Thanks for that info, I can only agree that the CCT scan seems to be the most advanced CAV test going at the moment, I wasn't aware that it was available in Thailand. Not an expensive test, I may try to get an appointment next time I am in Sriracha.
  10. One of the strongest capabilities a small child has is learning to communicate. My kids grew up originally in a ousehold attempting to speak only English, although the "mother tongue" remained Swiss German. When we moved to the French speaking part of Switzerland and schooling started, my Swiss German became the household language, meanwhile new vocabulary tended to be French. Italian and Spanish got added to that mixture, you should have been at the table when we had guests! The point is, we never worried about it and NEVER deprived the kids of their mother tongue. Neighbours in the same situation first banned English and then German, result, two kids that have difficulties communicating in any language.
  11. Hi. I run about 20 Km a week, training up to 10 Km. WHAT do you guys do about dogs? Sticks? Pepper spray (which I don't like the idea of, and don't know where to buy), air pistol- no routes available leaving the village without dogs / absent owners. Thanks.
