Re: Moving them on to pellets?

I've decided what I'll do is feed them softened pellets in the mornings, and just let them use the feeder or go hungry the rest of the day! We'll see how it goes. They are coming in to lay. Five eggs yesterday and the day before, but only three today. They are not inclined to go out into the outside...

Re: Recipes

We've had a couple of family parties recently, due to visiting relatives and birthdays. Mum and her twin were 82 yesterday, so we had a get together at dau's, which I catered (because dau is pregnant, and can eat as long as she doesn't smell food cooking!). I did, among other things, a load of cockt...

Moving them on to pellets?

My new girls, when I got them just over a week ago, I had assumed were on pellets. TBH, over all the years I've got pullets from the su pplier, they've always been on pellets, so it never occurred to me to ask. However, after a few days, I noticed that the feed wasn't disappearing, and the hens were...

Re: Weed or plant?

Campanula and aubretia both like well-drained, quite dry alkaline soil, so maybe yours is more damp and ericaceous, LadyA? It's well drained, in most areas, but yes, I think it's most like more ericaceous. most of it anyway. The soil isn't terribly deep here, and then there's rock underneath, I thi...

Re: New girls

I've been a bit concerned about how little feed was disappearing, considering the girls are confined to the run at the moment. Most of them, it's as if they didn't understand the feed. All the pullets I've bought from this poultry place over the years have always been on layer's pellets before being...

Re: Weed or plant?

You could send it my way!! I've never been able to get either campanula or aubretia to grow here! I've no idea why. I would love something like this to take over some bare spots and cover some ground!!

Re: New girls

They all look lovely and settling in well. I just love the way whenever you do work they stand there like a sentinel of forewomen, offering helpful advice in a clucky sort of way. That's exactly what they're like! Of course, there was the added incentive that as I cleared away grass etc from the ba...

Re: New girls

I just took off the rusted wire, and put new weldmesh on. With an interested audience of chickeny faces offering encouragement and advice from the inside! Snipping the wire and using the big stapler has made the arthritis in my hands flare up badly - so I took my mum and sister out for a final coffe...
