Re: Christmas Cards

Still got my Little Grey Rabbit book, though not sure of the title offhand. In all seriousness, I think the beautiful illustrations and a vague sense of doom in the book may be a deep seated reason I am interested in small animals/birds, wanting to protect them. I don't remember Tressie though. And ...

Re: One of those days

Seriously BYM, you should collect all these stories and/or send them into the stand-up of your choice and hear them relayed to the rest of us. Second thoughts, keep them for your book, you could become like James Herriot! I'm sure you could find a way of interspersing these daft episodes against an ...

Re: Weather

Well we also have sun but I could be breaking out the Pimms, its warm enough! Unfortunately rain is forecast all this coming week, I guess we had to have it sometime as we have had a glorious October. I have been digging the garden this morning, planting things whilst the soil is still warm. So far ...

Re: Ascites (water belly)

Firstly, I can't comment on illness in quail, but if this were a chicken, I would agree with Marigold about culling, and I don't think any supplement is going to give you a cure. However, you could try something containing oregano which some people think helps, something like Orego-Stim. You could m...

Mice, voles, slowworms....you name it! Pity they didn't have more of a taste for slugs, now that would have been useful in the veg patch!

Re: Find-a-Chook

Good Luck HG, I have racked my brains and done a bit of research and am coming up a complete blank. Obviously these breeders are miles away from you but presumably could send eggs. They were some of the first, if not the first, people to breed them seriously over here for quite a while so the stock ...

Re: Find-a-Chook

I used to, somebody down in Sussex, possibly near the Surrey border, can't quite remember exactly where, or their name, I will have to have a proper think and see if it comes back into my memory! Anyway, they bred champion birds at the Natl or Fed maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Could the breed club help do...
