Re: Nearly out for the Count.

Well in my case it involved a good hard squeeze of his chest, not sure I could replicate it if I wanted to.

Re: Underweight chicken

You bet me to it but I was going to say Rick, have a go at improving the gut flora with Avipro/Beryls/Flightpath, not sure there is really a lot more you can do. My brother in law told me about flightpath, which is the same product as Avipro avian but bundled up for pigeons at half the price of what...

Nearly out for the Count.

The Count that is, he nearly died today. He had a huge stroke of luck in that he happened to keel over when I was clearing up the run. I saw his beak open, he was gasping and his comb had gone blue, then he just keeled over and started flapping. By the time I picked him up his eyes were shut and he ...

Re: New Chicks not integrating or roosting in coop

Some birds just don't like roosting indoors Henrietta. I've currently got 8 birds in two separate groups of 4 who roost outside, four of them roosted the entire winter last year outside up in the roof beams and I had a bird who used to roost by herself constantly over a period of years. She used to ...

Re: Bathtime and high fashion

That second photo made my night!. The first one is really sweet too and I don't even like Legbars. God knows what you would get up to if anyone ever furnished you with a lab and some funding Rick. Like last time I have only just seen this thread two days after it was posted, it does seem to be off o...

Re: Michael Jacksons Thriller

It's a nice little story really, the guy was called Rod Temperton and he was living in a dingy one bedroom flat in Germany when he was recruited into disco band Heatwave who he wrote Boogie Nights for. Went on to write quite a few hits, 'Sweet Freedom' for Michael McDonald, 'Rock With You' for Jacks...

Michael Jacksons Thriller

Was written by a man from Cleethorpes who used to work for Ross frozen foods!, it's my random useless fact for the day :D. If you've ever been to Cleethorpes you will know why it tickles me.

Turkey Police

Not Erdogan's boys in blue (thankfully) but a poultry peace keeper instead.

Safe space snowflake warning!!, the video contains a very light skirmish between two cocks.

Re: T-Shirt Weather

Always thought it was strange that the weather people make no mention of Shetland or the Scillies. When they mention strong winds you never hear them say anything about the Isle of Man or Isle of Wight either That's political correctness for you, mentioning the Isle of Man would see them accused of...

Re: T-Shirt Weather

One of the things I liked about Alpacas was that they weren't prone to foot problems in the way that sheep are, having just a couple of pads with toenails (not unlike dogs in some ways) rather than hooves. Foot care for sheep seems like a bit of a never-ending battle talking to folks who keep them. ...
