Re: Bryonia alba

Thanks, Hen Gen. It does get rather confusing with all the different advice on other forums and websites. I actually looked inside her beak a couple of days ago, but could not see anything unusual. I have just left her for the past week with her normal layers feed (Dodson and Horrel), water with a l...

Re: Eggless wonders

Hi there, I now have this problem! For about a week now we have had varying numbers of eggs 0, 1 or 2 but not 3 for a while. They almost seem to be taking it in turns! I haven't changed their feed but they do seem to be off their food a bit. They usually come running when I go out hoping for treats...

Re: Bryonia alba

Well its been a week, Sindy has been more or less OK, til this afternoon. Her comb is still on one side and this evening her crop was like a small watery balloon, so I repeated the tipping up method. After that, I mixed some natural yoghurt ( 1tsp) with oats and gave her that. I read somewhere that ...

Re: nature notes

I called out and was gobsmacked it came running right up to me, poked its' nose through the fence. After a few moments or so, it then got on the ground ...

Re: Burnt Bridges

I joined a poultry forum on Facebook and lasted a whole week!! What a bunch of know it all know nothings! Someone was enquiring about wormers and I mentioned how I administer it to mine, putting the measured amount of wormer powder on a bit of cherry tomato per bird per day. I was practically held u...

Re: Bryonia alba

It sounds to me like she has either sour crop or impacted crop, or possibly ascites (I never know quite what this last one is, beyond presenting as watery, perhaps a bit lower down than the crop?)

Re: Bryonia alba

Hi all This briony stuff only appeared yesterday, so never seen it growing near the run, just that other strand of it further away in the hedging in the garden. I am just trying to rule out things, but as you say Marigold, it might be the fact they are ex batts and prone to problems. I would never u...
