Re: "Google ad. experiment."

Nice to see the numbers of Full Members creeping up. I believe Tim is abroad ATM and I'm sure he'll update the list ASP when he has time. I'm still puzzled by the huge numbers of people who register and then apparently don't even visit the Forum. Yesterday I sent out 40 p.ms to people who have regis...

Re: Advice on cleaning nares

I think you said she's had this ever since the hot dusty weather a few weeks ago? If she's eating, drinking etc and seems perky otherwise, and if none of the others are doing it, it's unlikely to be a bronchial infection as she's vaccinated, so Rick's idea sounds good. A vet will probably give you a...

Re: Hello from Northland, New Zealand

Hi Mrs Nuts, and welcome from me, too. It's great to have another international member as most of us live in the UK, though we do have members from all over the world. I'll be interested in your quail-rearing experiments as I've done a couple of successful batches using an incubator and brooder. The...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

I love it! Good to see at least one rail company has the right priorities!
What would happen if you took the first one literally and actually tried to transport chickens, I wonder?

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

£10 here buys you 8 litres of wine, which entertains me for days! I did see an ad for mail order oil seals. Turns out to be a pretty useful site as they may stock something suitable for our old rotorvator. The usual solution to worn axle seals is to fill the gearbox with grease but that causes a lo...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

Some more statistics; Poultrykeeper Forum started in 2009, with Tim as the founder member. Total number of registered members now = 1586. (Tim occasionally prunes the list and deletes people who haven't posted after registering, as too many members who don't contribute puts up the server costs.) Ne...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

Oh dear, sorry if that came over a bit heavy, Mrs B - it wasn't meant to. It just feels good sometimes, now most of us reading this are part of the 'team,' to have a space to discuss ideas about where the forum is going and how to ensure its survival - I love it when threads wind round and round int...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

We need more chicken pictures! Have you seen the Chilton Rail ads lately at stations with the hybrid family out on excursions? Its brightened up my commute :) That's a good point, Rick. Can you find a pic of this to show us? It's lovely to get the clean text without adverts, but when a new person l...

Re: "Google ad. experiment."

I've been looking through the list of registered forum members (click the Members button on the top line of the page) to try to get some idea of how many active members we currently have, i.e, people who have actually posted something at least once in 2018. I think I found around 20-30 people who ha...
