Re: Making a dust bath for the girls

Hi Diane. If you have a used car tyre, you could fill that with nice soil. I made my girls one with a big lorry tyre and put children's play sand in it, but as they were used to soil, they didn't like it. Heaven knows what they thought it was.😀

Re: Bryonia alba

Re: Eggless wonders

I haven't changed their feed but they do seem to be off their food a bit. They usually come running when I go out hoping for treats...

Re: Bryonia alba

Well its been a week, Sindy has been more or less OK, til this afternoon. Her comb is still on one side and this evening her crop was like a small watery balloon, so I repeated the tipping up method. After that, I mixed some natural yoghurt ( 1tsp) with oats and gave her that. I read somewhere that ...

Re: nature notes

I called out and was gobsmacked it came running right up to me, poked its' nose through the fence. After a few moments or so, it then got on the ground ...

Re: Burnt Bridges

I joined a poultry forum on Facebook and lasted a whole week!! What a bunch of know it all know nothings! Someone was enquiring about wormers and I mentioned how I administer it to mine, putting the measured amount of wormer powder on a bit of cherry tomato per bird per day. I was practically held u...
