    Salmonella can pass on by milk, cheese, EGGS etc

    Very very true - you never know what is round the corner!

    I do understand that anyone can contract Salmonella poisoning but those with compromised immune systems are more at risk. Raw egg yolks I dont do these days. Yes handling chicken is also really risky and nowadays they advocate you dont wash the chicken before cooking which is not what used to happen when I first got married many moons ago. Edwina really damaged the egg industry though as DM says above.

    More chance of food poisoning eating fast food I would say. If everyone looked at it like this then no-one would have hens. But each to their own, when I had hens people were glad to get my eggs. I never sold them- just gave them away. I buy from free range roadside boxes nowadays. From people whom I know take their husbandry seriously and worm regularly. If you have a compromised immune system then that is a different story altogether.

    Gardening thread

    This is what the banana skins do for your Roses. Very good for them. Fresh banana peels are a healthy addition to your rose-fertilizing program. Since they decompose rapidly, banana peels readily release beneficial minerals such as potassium, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, trace elements and some phosphates into the soil for roses to relish.

    Top of eglu ripped off overnight

    I am so sorry you lost your ducks like this. Did you find the bodies of the ducks - maybe some of them got away!. It seems very strange and did you find the pin for the eglu lying about at all? Sad to lose them. Worse if it was humans!

    "Ironing" Chickencam what is that word - the only ironing that gets done in my house is the quilt stuff as I sew! I gave up ironing years ago - things needed ironed - go in the tumble drier for 5 mins then get hung up on hangers to finish drying - never any need to iron - everything else gets tumble dried fully! Too many birds to mess up the clothes outside if I hang them out these days - and trees requiring trimming for wind to blow the clothes on the line.

    Many years ago we had the big green ones - boy did they rear up = they were on the willow trees and stripped them bare. Did not have the girls then and they presumably ended up as moths. They looked so scary.

    Thank you - its worth the 64 miles each way to get these results. By the way Molke is a great bra for after surgery - no clips, no underwires and very comfy! (just for info)

    Glad to see you back - was wondering how you were doing. Well done for completing your treatments. Sorry been such a bad time for you but can only improve. Stay healthy. I had my 9years clear mammogram last month. Clear again thankfully.

    Hip surgery for Labrador

    Poor fellow - given his age I would opt for referral to an orthopaedic practice for more advice and options - especially as he is insured. All vets will have their favourite referral practices and take it from there. Hope he gets sorted soon. Love a black lab!.

    In the kitchen

    They kind of separate inside but I microwave them and eat them and they are fine - I dont put cheese or butter in them as I dont eat these and love them jsut as they come out of the microwave. Dont take up much room in a little zip loc bag in a corner here and there! BTW can anyone tell me how to stop the double spacing on here - drives me mad.

    In the kitchen

    I cook jacket potatoes and freeze them as I like mine done in the oven not the microwave and so when the oven is on I cook normal ones and sweet potatoes too - they go a bit strange inside but with toppings they are fine. ps. I freeze most things!

    Recurrent gapeworm problem - does Ivermectin work?

    You need to use Flubenvet for Gapeworm not Ivermectin.

    Is this scaly leg mite?

    You can buy this over the counter - it says 1 drop per 500g bird, I used to use this every 6 months between flubenvet worming every 3 months. You will need to withdraw egg consumption though. http://www.chickenvet.co.uk/shop/view/index.aspx/product/ivermectin-1-spot-on-38
