  1. 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.


  2. <> 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


  3. 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


  4. I was speaking to a breeder as I'm hoping to add in an additional chicken when I was asked where did I keep them? Awful silence and a huff.

     

    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.

  5. 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

  6. 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
