stormy weather!!

Gosh, isn't it hard to believe that only a couple of months ago, we were so desperate for rain?? :D :D Talk about a feast or a famine! We've had some quite stormy conditions here, and lakes ful of rain falling! The place is awash! One of my water barrells (an old one which has a slight leak, so only...

The Indonesian breed Ayam Cemani featured in Practical Poultry January 2012, page 26 if my memory serves correctly.
And I keep seeing it on FB, claiming that everything is black, including the flesh, internal organs, eggs and in one rather lurid post, even the blood! :-)07 I do not engage!

Re: Sneezing and runny nose

I would at the very least isolate her. She's displaying what, in chickens, are always worrying symptoms - which isn't necessarily saying that she is seriously ill or infectious - but respiratory illnesses can become serious quite quickly in birds, because of how their respiratory system works. A bir...

Re: Chicks not laying.

To be honest, I don't think there's anything wrong. It's the time of year when chickens start to moult and can go off lay because of that, and also, there's a lot less light with longer nights and shorter days coming in, and it's daylight hours which govern laying to a large extent. They may not lay...

Re: Hope you are all ok?!

We had some rain which has washed in the fertiliser. If anyone has heard the news about the disastrous flooding in Aude, fortunately it's away East from us. At least 6 drowned overnight when their cars were washed off the roads in the worst flooding since 1891. Fire brigade can't cope with all the ...

Re: Hope you are all ok?!

I've been housebound for the weekend. Hurt my back the other day in the garden, and then went down with tonsillitis! So, with the weather not great either, I made use of the time. Cleared out remaining tomatoes and made the most amazing chutney! Tomato & red pepper. And also made Christmas puddings!...

(17.20 hours, sun shining, G and T waiting).
Was gorgeous here today too! But I understand parts of Wales has taken a right hammering, and a couple of people died in the storms.

We got hit by Storm Callum on Friday night, but I see on the news that, although the West of Ireland got the worst of it here, it still wasn't nearly as badly hit as parts of the UK were when it reached you!

Hope everyone on poultrykeeper is ok, and that no one has suffered too much damage. xx
