  1. Well, we had fun and games. He had to go to the Vet. 1st time ever, as he wouldn't get going, and didn't pee. His back legs got a bit fluid y , so off we went. £33 lighter, we then bought a chick lamp, (125w bulb size), and he sits under that, charging, like a phone!! It's his docking station! When fully charged, he whips around, poo everywhere, eating well, and now out in the daytime. He's never been to the vet before, and has cost us nothing except the odd worm paste over the years, but now he's in debt!!

  2. I'm probably out of date, but when I did my training (food Tech) yrs ago. Tomatoes, anything highly spiced, anything acidic, , or with hard to digest bits, seem to flare it up. Try looking for a forum, or better still, go onto any Australian medical site, as they go for plain english, easy to understand advice. Poor you, it hurts, and now you can't even comfort eat:(

  3. These ones are in really good condition, as they were an unexpected lot from a barn hen situation. They are fairly feathery, (unlike the last lot!), a bit skinny, and scared of everything, but I'll feed them up, and they'll be fine. I've nevre seen such pale legs, and pale combs!!

    Ex batts vary tremendously. I know here in Devon next week there are another 1500 needing homes, they are only 18 months old, and are so lovely; I've always had ex batts, they lay like machines, even when they are pathetic, and are such happy little birds! Take the chance, you wont regret it, and any life you give them is better than the mincer.
