Re: Coronavirus

A lot of snideness about office workers at the moment in the press and from politicians, apparently in some kind of effort to save pubs and sandwich shops. The reality is that productivity is up, working hours are also up as three hours aren't being wasted commuting both ways. Going forward, sick le...

Re: Cheery Pics

Yes, Friday was a particularly nice one here too. Whenever I see the sky like that I think of Cloud City in Return of the Jedi.

Early harvest

Just harvested our plums today, very early for us. Apples about a week away which is even earlier. We even noticed the first haws turning red last week when it was still July. I wonder if it has anything to do with the lockdown and lack of human activity for three months.

Re: Embarking on getting three chickens, plastic coop advice.

Hi Richard

All I could say is that Green Frog were very good 10 years ago when I bought mine, which is still going strong. The design has changed since then in terms of the front door and some of the clips they use to hold it together but it does look basically the same.

Re: Allergy....aarrrgghhh!!!

If at all possible try to get someone else to look after your birds for a fortnight. Don't go anywhere near them or the run. That will be the best way of eliminating or proving that it is dust/chicken dander that is causing your symptoms. The problem with masks is that unless they are good and fit w...

Re: Looking for maran eggs

Hi, and welcome to the forum. It's probably best not to get eggs posted out to France, the amount of handling they will go through and the time taken for them to arrive will seriously compromise the fertility. The only Maran breeder I know of is close to Reading unfortunately. I don't know what your...

Re: Decathlon

I see they had a generic response they put out on twitter to the tune of, "this wasn't intended for the UK, we don't sell this product in the UK, we have taken it down, each company operates as a separate business, we are committed to the environment blah blah" I would have thought the market for th...

Re: Online Fraud

I don't know if you don't have a mobile out of principle or because of poor coverage up there HenGen but they are useful as added security for anything you are doing online. I had a PayPal problem where they suspended my account due to suspicious activity and now I have added one time passcode verif...

Re: Favourite Car

I think I have found what it was, or was part of at least. Something called the Wasps Scooter Club Ride of Remembrance.
