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!...

Storms! What storms? 🤭🤭🤭
(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.

Hope you are all ok?!

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 ...

Thanks LadyA. It must be down to the wrong gut bacteria for some reason. Her crop has been going down but there is a ball of something in there and I'm thinking feathers still.) You mean antibacterial properties! Sounds good!
Yes, I meant antibacterial! Got auto "corrected"! :-)01

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Oreganico (and Herban) is a strong oregano oil. Oregano oil has natural antibiotic properties. It may be coincidence, but it does seem to have been helpful several times in clearing up runny tummies. I suppose because there wasn't a serious underlying cause.

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

tbh, Hen Gen, when any of the chickens here get sick, they get 48 hours on oreganico to see if they start to turn around. If they don't, I cull them. If it's runny poop, I give them all a week on oreganico, it usually stops it, especially if (like this last time) it seems to be something to do with ...
