    Good heavens Margaid, you have been in the wars, I am glad you got treated promptly and the wait for an ambulance wasn't too long. good that you are getting out and about and coping with food. Only 20 days until the first Ospreys arrive, based on last years arrival which was Loch of the...

    Tip for poo picking in freezing weather

    Congratulations on becoming a "local" after a mere 14 years. The bit I hate most is coping with anything that has frozen, especially cattle troughs. The hens have drinkers that I can empty nightly. I am sure you can cope with your own names for breeds, it will be just another tag to add to...

    Advice for run structure please!

    Hope your girls are ok also. Storm Isha certainly packed a punch, it didn't hit us until the evening, and I wondered what we would find in the morning. Luckily our run and coop are in quite a sheltered position, protected by a building and hedges. Weather is such a worry for us chicken...

    Hello again 🤗

    That was a near miss, someone was looking out for you there. There is a property up a neighbouring road that has eucalyptus trees and they seem to lose a branch every time there is a storm I have noticed

We escaped pretty lightly with Isha here in Essex, the wind gusts started about 6pm -2am. 58mph was the strongest forecast with the rest 40-45. Still pretty scary though. with the wind screaming around the house. We didn't get...

    Tip for drinkers in freezing weather

    Exactly our routine, we empty the drinker at night, refill in morning. We have a couple of spares of various sizes. Ditto feeders, as you know that if you need a replacement it will be when the shop is shut

    Our mum has "Lorryall" also, but for a certain age, supposed to deal with wrinkles, so I guess it would work on combs. She also has some foot cream called CCS which she swears by. Now our feet go through a lot , perhaps we should get that on our feet and ankles. We really fancy sitting with...

    Season's Greetings

    We have all decided, it's in the big coop for us, endless rain, the lake has gone walkabout and is heading in our direction. Plus the grass is getting to be very squishy and more muddy, and who wants that squelching between their toes. Then our humum complains about a bit of dirt on the eggs...

    Season's Greetings

    Our humum puts lots of things in the food processor thingy for us, makes life so much easier for us busy girls. Slugs, very tasty once you have got your beak around the strange slimy sticky stuff they come covered with, but definitely vegan as we have seen them eating lettuce, flowers, cabbage...
