  1. You shouldn’t close the door at night. Put hay in their hay rack. I found if you put some droppings into a rabbit litter tray they will start going there. Incredibly easy to toilet train
  2. The cube is already insulated because of its double wall.
  3. Hi Patricia W. thank you. I will have a look on the omlet website for measurements. If it is enough bigger perhaps it would be the best thing for me to do.
  4. @soapdragon I can easily wait until spring. I haven’t 100% decided I want to sell it. I do really like it, would just like it to be twice the size. My girls are currently split between the cube and two classics all attached to the same walk in run and they share the same free range area too. I can’t help thinking it would be better for them to all be in the same coop too so have been researching plastic alternatives to the eglu.
  5. I’m thinking of selling my eglu cube mk2 with stand and wheels, and am hoping someone can advise me on a realistic price to ask for it?
  6. Yesterday I felt content. It turned into a lovely sunny day my children played in the garden after doing their homeschooling We got a lot of work done in the garden which we have been wanting to get done for a while now which felt good. Also did some baking with the children and ate my husbands home made bread. Going forward I intend to keep doing the things I can and make the best of the way things are just now, and try not to worry. I haven’t seen worldometer but will have a look.
  7. Hi I’m finding it all a bit unreal at the moment. I’m feeling lucky I have a garden for my children and pets. Also grateful for the internet so can still keep in touch with family and friends. I don’t know what is happening with a lot of things which does worry me so just taking each day as it comes.
  8. Thank you everyone for your good advice. I can see now it wouldn’t be the best and would be a shame to do it with my children and have it fail. Will have a look at your link cat tails thanks
  9. I have half of an Argos apple kids paddling pool (the solid ones not inflatable). I’m wondering if I could use it as a small garden pond? I’ve never made a pond before so not sure if it is suitable. I’m hoping some wiser person on here can advise me please?
  10. Agree with Beantree. I feed small holders layers pellets and give a small amount of corn in the evenings at the moment while its cold, though they should be fine with just layers pellets. I also use the plastic dustbins and found they had sizes on them so can get an idea of how many food bags they will hold depending on which size of bag you want to go for. I also have grit available at all times in a separate tub so they can help themselves
  11. Thats it, diurnal, I couldn't remember the term. I only shut the door when the weather was bad as thought I was doing the right thing stopped as soon as I learnt better. I think the best home I ever had for my rabbits was a large wooden dog kennel with attached run, it was secure had a large run area and because they went round the corner to sleep it was lovely and cosy (no drafts) even with the bottom door open in all weathers.
  12. Sorry not sure about the jacket as I don't think they had them when I had my bunny. I did use a snuggle safe heat pad sometimes but only when it was frosty/snowy. I also shut my bunny in at night though I have since seen a video on one of the bunny rescue sites saying they should not be shut in at night.
  13. Do you know what is attracting them to your garden? Bird feed on the ground (including wild bird feed) can attract them as can compost heaps etc. Could it be a neighbours they are being attracted by? Sorry I know you have probably been through all that already just would be great if you can eliminate the problem without using poison as it can kill peoples pets too. Lost a lovely cat who ate a rodent that had eaten poison 😢
  14. Not used it myself yet but am planning to give this grass seed mix a go for my chickens free range area: https://www.meadowmania.co.uk/grass-seed-for-hen-run-sp3a-1-kilo.htm
  15. Im not sure to be honest, but agree it is a pretty bird. Would be great to see another photo in a few weeks
  16. Hello, could anyone with pet mice please tell me which food you feed them? Thanks
  17. Thanks @soapdragon looking forward to giving the recipe a try. I like your name 😃 That sounds yummy!
  18. Oh dear thanks @Cat tails you are correct I meant @soapdragon will try to edit my post
  19. @soupdragon Please please could you give me your tomato and chilli jam recipe? I have just got a jam making kit and thought would have to wait until next year to make strawberry jam but I have tomatoes and I have chillies...
  20. If its not the battery you are probably best to give Omlet a call, their customer service team are very helpful
  21. Lovely looking hens, and fantastic mix of egg colours. My white leghorn is my tamest girl, though she is also top of the pecking order
  22. Just to answer my own question they are absolutely fine with the eglus roosting bars 😀
  23. I have finally got some Pekin and some Silkie growers. I am keeping them in an Eglu classic and I'm wondering if I should take out the roosting bars until the hens are fully grown or if they should manage now? Any opinions appreciated thanks.
