    Vent Gleet

    Our poor hen still has a white deposit around her vent (cloaca) and a search on the internet shows this to be Vent Gleet. Basically, she has a fungal infection, and this is causing soreness and even some bleeding. Has anyone managed to deal with this, without going to the vet? The vet is too expensive, and I would like to find alternative solutions.
  2. We have three hens, all around seven months old. They laid eggs every day, more or less, but one developed a problem several weeks ago. This is the sequence: 1. Started missing daily eggs 2. Laid occasional eggs with no shell or membrane 3. Had bleeding from cloaca 4. Had watery discharge from cloaca 5. Has chalky mush coming out of cloaca Is she beyond hope, or could we hope for Pepper to recover from this? She is fed pellets, has a lovely home, gets occasional treats of lettuce or similar. Any advice would be very welcome.....

    Where do people get the little chicken and egg icons for their signatures? I can’t seem to find them.
  5. I don’t know if this is normal behaviour, but our girls have started to scatter the nesting material all around their house, which forces us to replace it each day. For the first week of getting our two new hens, they were happy with our first hen, and each morning the house (Go Up) was tidy and the straw was in the nesting area. The last two days have been chaos, with nothing much in the nesting area, and everything scattered around the rest of the house. OK, we are first-timers, and this is new to us, but does anyone else find this? Is there any way to retain the bedding in the nest site? Would a cardboard box help? Chris and Christine

    Omlet retail outlet

    We live in Hemel Hempstead and we are hoping to look at items in the flesh before buying
  7. Is there a retail outlet for Omlet items? I looked online and it says that a Garden Centre near Banbury has a shop but only open at weekends.

  9. My self-adhesive pads for my new Go Up ladder were, well, not very adhesive. Has anyone else found this? Any recommendations for making the steps less slippery?
  10. For our first venture into keeping chickens, we are looking for a second hand Go so that we can see whether it works for us. We live in the Hemel Hempstead area, and could pick up in person. Does anyone have one for sale?
