  1. Avian Influenza: Housing measures set to be lifted on 31 March It's nearly over! https://www.gov.uk/government/news/avian-influenza-bird-flu-national-prevention-zone-declared
  2. Hi Flopsy and Gardengirl Well Beatrice got a new companion at the beginning of January (we're in Essex too, sssshhhhh, don't tell!). First couple of weeks, I kept them separate, now they are together in run and coop. There I was worried about Beattie being bullied when she herself has turned into a bit of a bully. I guess it's just the pecking order, but she is definitely in charge and Maisie doesn't seem that bothered. I am very glad I got her as I feel although they may not be best of friends (yet or ever) at least they do have some company and they often stand together and wash o
  3. This fits the holes perfectly: https://reolink.com/product/argus-2/ 😎
  4. Hi Flopsy How are you getting on with your lone hen? Did you get anymore to keep her company? I'm interested to hear as I have a similar dilemma with one lonely hen.
  5. Would really like to know what is wrong with poor little Beatrice. I have had her 9 weeks, she is an ex-batt and I got her from a small independent 'rescue' group. Ever since she arrived she has had a problem with a leaky vent and dirty feathers. She was picked on so much by the other 2 that I had them re-homed a week after they all arrived. I am new to chicken keeping and did not have the facilities to separate them. She has had all the usual things recommended for vent gleet, no change. She is now on her third lot of anti-biotics - 1. Tylan 2. Nystatin 3. Noroclav. I have tr
  6. Me too! And only had them one day!! Please could I ask what solution you have that works? Many thanks
  7. I hope your Eglu arrived on Monday and that your chickens are settling in well Photos? You must have had a rush to put everything together with such a delayed delivery. Mine arrived on the Monday, it's all up, run in place...now trying to find some chickens to live in it! 😟
  8. Yes, twice. Held in a queue for several minutes and then a message that the call can not be taken and disconnected. Have sent an email and a DM via Twitter. If it hasn't been dispatched yet, that's it now till Tuesday. Very disappointed. It is beginning to take the shine off the whole process. Nearly bid on a second hand one a couple of weeks ago, but foolishly thought it would be here soon. Can't get on list with BHWT until it arrives 😔
  9. Well, so my "order" has arrived and sure enough, no Eglu. Tracking information now shows that Eglu, frame, wheels and run extension not even arrived with courier. Have been very patient so far but really *****ed off with this now 😒
  10. Oh dear, that is disappointing. I hope you get it sorted quickly. My Eglu is due to be dispatched today - very excited! I hope they don't forget to include it and just send the bits and bobs that I ordered with it 🙄
  11. I agree that they are a small independent business and need our support at this time. To be fair, Omlet have been overwhelmed with orders, so are not struggling in the way many businesses are, but obviously still operating under very difficult circumstances. However, I am fairly annoyed to learn that they are not made in the UK as I had thought they were. This is obviously part of the reason for the delay! I can't get on a waiting list for hens until I have the coop, so now looking at August at the earliest I am guessing and I expect to have to go back into work in September 😞
  12. I ordered a Go Up on the 21st April with a dispatch date of 16th June...just received an email suggesting that it is now due for dispatch on 17th July. ☚ī¸ Feeling very disheartened. Who is to say it won't be pushed back again?
