Re: Coronavirus

The evidence for virus transmission from object to person is pretty sketchy. They have established that the virus will survive on objects for a period of time. But, from the moment of deposit to infinity, the virus strength diminishes. I have yet to see a study on at what strength the virus is still...

Re: REDMITE

Calendula cream is what I use for rashes and general skin irritation. Just a thought. Are you sure, given it seems you may be dealing with some type of rash that it is red mite causing it? Red mite bites don't normal give rashes. They bite, suck the blood and go. Have you considered you may be deali...

Re: Burnt Bridges

... but the mental health price is high. It is! There are over 20,000 members on that page and so issues (or non-issues) that crop up for us on occasion - sometimes never - are going off like the clappers every day (with a multitude of diagnosis often based on very little actual information) just b...

Re: Burnt Bridges

Never had a Facebook account, or any other account that could be described as a social media site. The sites supposedly dedicated to a particular subject can be pretty horrifying. I can understand that such sites are useful for keeping in touch with people but the mental health price is high.

Re: Badger and chickens

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help here with some advice on badgers and chicken keeping. We have decided to have a little farm. To start with, we hoped to get just some chickens and ducks and a few bee hives with a view of taking on a couple of goats next spring. Our garden is of a quite generous s...

Re: Eggbound?

It won't be poop that far in. The end of the intestinal tract is quite close to the vent and is above the oviduct. You did well for the egg binding check. If you can't feel an egg in the first couple of centimeters she isn't egg bound. I would not be bathing, or sitting her in water. A poop check wo...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Not a major alteration in life for me. I think I've been self isolating for at least ten years. :) I've got the mask and gloves and a small bottle of 96% alcohol for when I do venture into what passes as civilization. The animals still need feeding, stuff still needs doing and one day is much the sa...
