Re: Crops for the girls

From observing my girls on the range they would choose sorrel and fresh young grass tips in the spring, and mature grass seed heads in the autumn.

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Plant more LadyA. First year I tried them I planted a packet, they all came up, we had loads fresh and a few frozen. Following year I planted a packet and just as many in saved seed. They all came up and we ate them fresh and froze loads as we were sick of the sight of them. This year I have learnt ...

Re: Newbie ... 3 days from Hatching!

The hen should accept it. Inevitably some don't, but generally they are OK. However, it will be a big clutch for her to raise so she may not. Wait till the chick is properly dried off and fluffed up, before moving it. However, as to the best time, I am not 100% sure, but whenever I have had to slip ...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Great story BYM, these coincidences are amazing. I'm glad you have your reward in several ways, including driving the combine, they are such massive and expensive bits of kit, not many people would get the chance I'm sure.

Re: Coronavirus

I have long hair, and haven't been to the hairdressers for 40 years. OH/other family member cuts the back and I do the fringe. However, 10 days ago I asked for 4-6 inches off the back, so I now have shoulder length hair. Nothing to do with CV, just fancied a change! I had the same experience with Sa...
