Re: Solway coops and runs

How many eggs are you getting from the guinea pigs? :lol: For what it's worth, I've not been blown away by our Green Frog coop... I chose it for its rollaway nestboxes, which work well, but parts of the coop are hard to reach for daily poo picking, the door often jams on the bedding & doesn't close ...

Re: Hello all. Newbie from Nottinghamshire

Hi Tweetypie. Sorry for the long silence... I did clip a wing of each of my first ex-batts when I got them, as I had the same concern as you. It proved not to be necessary though, so I've not done it since (except for medical reasons when a hen injured her wing & it was dragging on the ground last y...

Re: MAJOR Update in progress

By the way, I seem to have lost the ability to add emoticons to my posts. I guess you have to do something different to get into full edit mode by default now?

Re: The Jokes section.

I had a boss who called me "Hun". I was outraged. How sexist! "No", he said, "It's short for Attilla the Hun. Everyone calls you that!"

Re: Hello all. Newbie from Nottinghamshire

Hi Tania & welcome to the wonderful world of ex-batts. Tempting though it is to let them out as soon as possible after a lifetime of captivity, you need to be sure that you can get them back into the run without stress, before you let them out.

Re: Luxury yacht

I'm not keen on taking my Icemaiden to the Antarctic- she's a 14' long plastic touring kayak!!! At under £400, I suspect she was a lot cheaper than her namesakes too!
