Should it be culled or not?

Every year I raise a few chickens to replace those that pass away. Furthermore I find it a real pleasure as well to raise chickens both for me and my children. This year I went for light Sussex eggs again and managed just two hens and two cockerels. They all look beautiful birds except one of the co...

Wat run supports do you have?

I am having to replace the wooden framework to my run once again. It measures approximately 32ft x16ft and I used 3inch square tanakised timber for the uprights and cross bars. However the have all rotted and require replacing. As an alternative to wood for the 3rd time I like the idea of using 42mm...

Boil on chickens feet

I notice that a couple of my chickens have what looks like a bulbous boil on their claw. Its situated at the point where their claws converge.

Its not wheeping or bleeding and appears to be on my more older birds.

Does anyone know what this maybe?

Regards

Re: red mite

I had red mites 8 yrs ago and tried simple "Dettol" and I have never had them again. I just diluted it slightly and sprayed it everywhere inside the hen house...... "Simples!" :)

Re: Advice for new Poultry run

Thank you for your advice. Its good news that you don't recommend cementing the posts in as that is quite an extra bit of work! In fact one of my cemented tantalised posts has rotted and snapped at ground level. I am also pleased that it seems more than adequate to use 3x3 inch as opposed to 4x4! Th...

LOOKING FOR LARGE FEEDER HOOD

Could anybody help me find a supplier or if someone has one unwanted re a 2ft diameter feeder hood? There is a supplier in Scotland, but they are charging over £20.00 postage. On an item that doesn't cost that much, its not economical sense to pay for that amount on postage. I am trying to make a dr...
