Re: Roundworm Question

Hi Chris, September, but they did have access to a large amount of leaves over the autumn and hence anything they could find to eat amongst them.

Roundworm Question

I am currently treating my flock for what I believe is early stage roundworm, I say I think it's early stage as their laying is undiminished, I have only seen 1-2 worms per dropping and not in every dropping, the only outward sign would be that one of my goldlines is shedding some bum feathers overn...

Re: Catching and picking up hens!

My hens too go ape whenever I am in the garden with a rake, spade, brush or length of wood, I had always wondered why, thanks Sue for putting the pieces together. Not keen on the nets myself for small domestic keepers, sure fire way to guarantee your chickens avoid you. If you put a bit of time in w...

Re: Skylines: Cream Legbar crossed with what??

Luckily ours seem quite happy between a couple of goldlines and a pair of leghorns/white stars (only one of whom is skittish so just goes to show). I was thinking of trying to hatch out some Wyandottes next spring/summer, Thornes has Gold Laced LF, Silver Laced LF and Silver Laced Bantams, as you ha...

Re: Skylines: Cream Legbar crossed with what??

I couldn't dig much up on the net about them either Chris, though I did notice a few people commenting in forums that they were on the less intelligent side of breeds they had met. To be fair while I've only had them for 6 months their egg laying has been very reasonable, 6 a week each up till mid N...

Skylines: Cream Legbar crossed with what??

Don't know why it has taken me so long to ask this. I have two skylines and they really are very different, one looks very much like a cream legbar, lays light blue eggs and is a real plucky little character who survived being egg bound, prolapsing and being bullied when young to work her way up the...

Re: Condensation in coops.

Ha ha, that would be my reaction too, I'm lucky enough to live close enough to pick it up myself so £9.38 a bale for me, just out of interest what is everyone else paying for theirs? I know omlet are charging their customers a whopping £13 which is naked profiteering in my view

Re: Condensation in coops.

I'm a huge fan of aubiose, so much so I started using it in my run about 3 months ago, sprinkle stalosan on it every two weeks and rake through and the run is now virtually smell free. Karminski you can get it delivered by titmuss but i would guess that would make it very uneconomical for you with t...
