  1. Wow, what a gorgeous item! I've no idea where you can find it for cheaper postage, but they are lovely. I will add that to my list o fthings to buy for when I get my chooks! Thanks for sharing. Edited to add: Here's one marginally cheaper and with slightly cheaper postage , but just in terracotta http://www.webury.com/index.html?lang=en-uk&target=d54.html&lmd=39226.620486
  2. Fab! Reading this sort of thing gives me reat ideas for making our yet-to-be-made run lots of fun for the girls. Its so hard waiting!
  3. Waitrose (or Ocado if you get it delivered) have free range thighs.
  4. Hi all I've been reading that Bokashi Bran is good for chooks, and can stop their poo smelling. I currently use Bokashi Bran in a Bokashi Compost bin...can I feed this to my chooks, or is there a special chook one? How do you feed your bran? Thanks in anticipation
  5. Lots on ebay Richard, price varies according to condition. There is also a company who specialises in them, if you search ebay for "red phone box" you'll get their web address.
  6. Hi Dancing Girl... It should be "Say no to 0870", which are the premium rate numbers. 0800 numbers are fine, they're free to the caller.
  7. He is sooooo cute! Love to hear how they get on rehoming him...
  8. I used to have the 6 monthly injection (well, my cats did I mean). Definitely the most stress free way of keeping the cats flea free. However, after a couple of years, I took the cats to the vert because they were scratching, and he found flea dirt. He recommended I switched to Stronghold drops. It's been a couple of years now, and the cats have started scratching again, so I thought I'd try Frontline for a while.
  9. <> Thank you for sharing this. I think you're amazing, and I wish I had your courage and strength. I'm a meat eater, I buy free range meat because I believe that at least the animal had a reasonable life. I am not strong enough to raise my own animals for meat, and I know this is a bit hypocritical. I really admire that you were able to do this. I would also like to echo what others have said: your boy had a happy life with you, so he was very lucky. I hope that it's easier for you next time. All the best
  10. Thanks bellekatz. Have just ordered some. I usually use Stronghold, which is still prescription only, but I think it's a good idea to vary treatment from time to time,
  11. I ended up registering so I could add a supportive comment. If all the comments are anti, then the council will think everyone supports them. Why are people so thoughtless and horrible?
  12. Seen this? I searched the Manchester Evening News for it after seeing some info on the BBC website. What ignortant omments people have been making! http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/s/1016107_womans_pet_chicken_too_noisy
  13. Seen this? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/6991258.stm Poor woman keeps ONE chicken, actually IN her house, and because neighbours have complained she has to either rehome chicken or be evicted herself. How spiteful of the neighbours! I can't see anywhere to comment on the story, I just hope the publicity does some good.
  14. Unfrtunately the tests have come back positive. This is just sooo terrible.
  15. I had really mixed reactions reading this. The initial story shocked me somewhat, I think it's a damn cheek that the childminder should start breastfeeding without any discussion. But some of the other stories made a lot more sense, so I IMHO it depends on the circumstances. For example the one where the woman in hospital was unable to feed her baby and the baby was refusing formula, thatseemed OK to me. Also, the one where the woman offered to feed her friends underweight baby, that seemed OK under the circumstances. And I can kinda understand the implant women... although it setill seems a bit icky, maybe because they are advertising for it.....in this case I would have thought expressed milk would be less icky
  16. Hi Little Red Hen Could you give broad hint on where the breeder was please? I live in Old Windsor and will be getting hens next March, so I'm curious to know if its anyone near me. Am happy for you to PM me if you don't want to post publicly. Hazel
  17. Hello everyone Haven't got my Cube or chooks yet, will be ordering for delivery in Feb/March next year. I was looking at the chicken netting that Omlet do, and I saw something similar but electric on ebay (for example item number: 130138581116) I'm sure it'll work well on the foxes...but wouldn't it be a bit strong if one of the hens touched it? What's your experience of this stuff? Thanks for your advice Hazel
  18. Hi All EDITED TO ADD: IGNORE THIS PLEASE. I'VE JUST SEEN THE ANSWER IN THE BREEDS SECTION...CAN'T BELIEVE I MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME! sorry. I'm nearly ready to order my Cube, and I've been thinking about what breeds to buy. The only place I have seen "Gingernut Ranger" and "Miss Pepperpot" are here on the Omlet site, so I am assuming they are hybrids bred especially for/by Omlet. Can anyone tell me what they are hybrids of, please? I would email Omlet, but I've already sent them two emails this week and don't want them to think I'm taking the mickey. Thanks for your help Hazel
