  1. Thanks everyone hopefully when the newbies arrive she will be nice and snuggly.
  2. Over the past few months some of my chooks have died, old age, and other different things, anyway this has left me with just one chook. Rather annoyingly she has decided to moult and is looking a bit threadbare. She is currently on her own at night on the eglu until some new friends arrive in 2 weeks. Any suggestions how to keep her a bit warmer while she's on her own.
  3. I'm going to have to find some of this. Is it something that can be purchased on the High Rd??
  4. The thing with probiotics is that they generally only contain one strain of bacteria, so will only replace /replenish that particular strain. It is difficult to know which needs replacing.
  5. It seems very effective, they are perfectly happy with the size I have used. You also need to bear in mind the sizes available in the UK.
  6. They pop their head through white tube. The white tube on the inside is cut in a particular way so the feed is easily accessible.
  7. Is there any way you can make it so they can't sleep up there and stop them getting in the habit?
  8. Barkeeper friend, is this like cif scouring powder?? I am not familiar with it.
  9. There are a few places to get ex batts from aswell, look at them all.
  10. I have transported 3 ex batts in a pet carrier. They all settled down really quickly and we're happy as Larry.
  11. I made a new feeder for my chooks, easy to make and really inexpensive. Anyone got anything similar? I hope they like it......... šŸ¤žšŸ»
  12. After a quick trip to b&q for a bit of chain I made one according to the recipe supplied above. Had some spare so made a little one aswell. They seem to like it.
  13. I did think about popping some grit in. I think I've got some mealworm lurking about aswell. Thanks
  14. Oooo thanks everyone. šŸ‘
  15. Hi I would like to make a pecking block for my chooks and was wondering if anyone had a good recipe. Thanks
  16. Brilliant, thanks. šŸ‘ Ps It makes me smile that you still have nuggett as your avatar. šŸ˜€ She was a proper character.
  17. Ooo that sounds like it could be the one, thanks.
  18. I had some really good spray for getting rid of red mite and for the life if me i cant remember the brand, can anyone help? Rather cunningly the empty bottle has been thrown away! It was 500ml and a concentrate, it smells if lavender when its made up. The bottle was white plastic. Can anyone help?
  19. Ive had a shufty but cant find anything. I think a trip to the local diy shop is in order. I did notice that when I put in mark 1, the cube mark 1 kept popping up!
  20. That is interesting, I shall investigate. Thanks.
  21. Ive got an original mark 1 eglu and was wonder if anyone has replaced the wooden slats inside. If you have what have you used? Thanks
  22. Thanks. Its such a shame, she was a lovely chicken. This is her having her first dust bath after we rescued her.
  23. Unfortunately not. It was the best thing for her. I know she's not suffering now.
  24. It was out again and water is just going right through her so ive taken her to the vet. She is now scratching around for corn in the big coupe in the sky. šŸ”šŸŒ½šŸŒˆ
  25. Ive separated her from the others, she still drinking but I dont think she is massively happy. I keep checking on her but i think a trip to the vet might be in order if it doesn't improve. She was such a happy chicken aswell.
