Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!

Both my sons have had coughs & colds, with one having a mild ear infection too. I've had the vomiting & diarrhea bug & so has my mum's care home for the last 2 weeks! Hubby has had 'man-flu' which everyone knows is the absolute worst so everyone else has to suffer too! :lol: Thankfully we're all rec...

Re: PIGEONS AND GUANO DISPOSAL....

Not sure about disposal but please ensure you at least wear a mask when dealing with them. You don't want to breathe in the dust. :shock: As you're allowed to double bag rats & dead chickens & put them in the normal bin, I would guess you can do the same with pigeons. The only problem may be the exc...

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!

:reindeer: :occasion9: :occasion7: Sounds like a very nice Christmas present, although with loads of work to do but you have a whole year to do it in! Whereabouts is the house? Glad to hear your Christmas has been a good one. Ours, not so good this year with everyone being ill in some way over the f...

Re: Eglu or not?

Some of our members used to recommend Green Frog coops but I've no idea how they compare in price to the Eglu?

Re: Fermenting veg and stuff!

I am hopeless in the kitchen! I admire people who can cook, make & preserve things that taste amazing. Good for you. ;) I suffer from acid reflux so tend to avoid many things that are vinegary or too spicy, so don't think I'd do very well with any of this, though I used to love pickled onions & picc...

Re: Newcomers!

It's been a while MamaOwl! #-o There's still a few of us old stalwarts left on the forum. I login at least once a day to see if there's been any action in my absence.... :grin: Hope your life has settled back on an even keel, at least for a while. I know I've had several issues over the last 18 mont...

Re: Persistent Feather Loss/Pecking?

It's not just them moulting, is it? If they've all learned to do it you may have a big problem as it's not always easy to stop them. You could try keeping them occupied as much as possible with treats & other things to explore. Can you get a log or 2 or a straw bale in with them? I haven't used Stoc...

Re: Suitable housing for a trio?

Welcome to the forum badelynge01. :) Glad you've bought a large shed for your chickens as I'm sure you will get more in the future....we all do! :lol: However, if you got the one from your link, it says that it HAS been treated & even has a 15 year warranty, so why are you stating it hasn't? :-k
