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!...

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

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Anyway. There is an evolutionary reason for grief so its pretty unavoidable. Thats a lot of plastic in the landfill. Keeping chickens is a delight. I don't really get social media I think. XXX That's a very perceptive statement, Rick, says it all I think. I do care for my chickens - a lot - I like ...
