Re: Non chicken related help

Now I'm confused! Just found this on the internet https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-holiday-entitlement This gave me a higher figure both for your employment and someone working full time, 5 days a week.

Re: Non chicken related help

So if you have been working for 6 and a half months (Monday 2nd July to 15th Feb) the total is 14.3 days. You have taken 7.5 days which leaves 6.8 days (rounded ...

Re: Weather

Sounds a brilliant idea Marigold! Not sure how I could incorporate it into my garden, but there is a "buffer strip" of trees which runs along my boundary so I could set up something there. How wide is the dry hedge? And please tell us the model of chipper. Mine is more or less OK but very noisy ...

Re: Weather

It's snowing! Very lightly and with small flakes so may not come to much. I have a wood-burner which is so efficient it can be used if you live in a smokeless zone (which I don't) It might be a different story if one burnt green wood but I don't and in any case it is not recommended because it reall...

Re: Gardening

I planted some wallflower plants in late Sept/early Oct. They started flowering within a couple of weeks and are still flowering! They'll probably have keeled over by the time they are supposed to flower!

Re: Happy Christmas to all of my forum friends

Am I glad I don't have television :D I'm spared all this stuff. As I can get everything I want at the moment in the one-horse town where I live, apart from a bit of Christmas stuff (not much) in the supermarket I don't suffer the exposure. Two carol services in one day was pushing it a bit ...

Re: Pre-sexed chicken eggs

At the risk of being controversial then it’s alright to kill millions of growing embryos but not a full time chick? Sounds like an ongoing controversy about ................................... !
