Re: Poultry mite invasion in my garden and house

Hey Mandi, I sent your pics off and here is the result... Dear Tania Thank you very much for your recent enquiry and photographs of the insect causing distress in Essex. We have consulted colleagues on site and unfortunately this does not appear to be a parasite that we can identify. It does not see...

Re: Poultry mite invasion in my garden and house

I've been waiting with bated breath all day on news of these bugs. I'm pleased you spoke to the guy and he gave you some hope in finding out what they are. I think we all all extremely intrigued. They do look like booklice. I had a peek on BPCA website. Keep us all posted, Mandi. PS Odd thing is tha...

Re: Dithering...good or bad sign?

I now let mine out all day on my garden, when I am home. I've had to put netting around my flower borders and raspberries, to stop them dustbathing in there. They love exploring and hiding under the shrubs, for shade. I sprinkle a few layers pellets on the lawn in the middle of the day, to keep them...

Re: Wormer types

Just waiting on delivery of the wormer I ordered a few days ago frpom Viovet. Whilst googling around, I also saw this on ebay (from Romania). Reckon it might be worth looking at, if you can't get hold of flubonvet or flubendazole and need it asap. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HELMIX-F-100g-Flubendazol...

I created my little set-up after seeing an advert locally for ex battery hens and had often wanted to own a couple of chickens. I also eat a lot of eggs. Anyway, I bought the coop and t...

Re: What are these??

I'll try to get a better photo, as they are quite a way from where I took it. They are semi circle in shape. Very odd. The mind boggles....

Just had someone on Facebook tell me they are pig shelters... was hoping they were for chickens so I could steal a couple :D
