    All Knowing Superchicken
  1. I must recommend Avanti Kitchens go to http://www.avantikb.co.uk/ they sell the best quality hand made kitchens around, great fitters, good after service...
  2. I take: Echinacea Manuka Honey Rosehip tea (or Rosehip cordial) Vitamin C and Zinc supplement Propolis lonzenges for a sore throat ...and the other day I gave my daughter a mustard foot bath, with added rosemary sprigs, which worked well.
  3. Hi - just looked at the article - those droppings are different to the ones that George is producing - hers are BRIGHT yellow, and more liquid.
  4. I did worm with Flubenvet a couple of months ago, but thank you for your reply.
  5. No, it definitely isn't yolk. Looks more like bright yellow flourescent paint. Does anyone have any ideas?

  7. When I let my chickens out this morning, In noticed George, our oldest Omlet girl, had bright yellow stuff matted around her 'frilly knickers' area; as I watched her, it was squirting everywhere as she was walking round. I checked the droppings tray - bright yellow liquid everywhere! What do you think it is?

  9. She sounds just like this. She's got no signs of a cold or infection; doesn't seem ill as such. She's pecking around and drinking, but just seems to be slowing down generally. I think she looking like a little old lady, bless her. She was always at the top of the pecking order, but I saw one of the black rocks pecking her last night, which was quite upsetting.
  10. Yes, I've wormed them all recently, and I thought if it were mites or lice they would all have them. I did check her over, she looked ok apart from the closed eyes/lethargy thing. Thanks for replying.
  11. George, my only exisiting Omlet girl, has been really quiet the past couple of days; standing still a lot, eyes closed, facing the wall, etc. She is drinking ok, but I don't see her eating much. She just looks like she's taking a kip half the time. She arrived POL Feb 2008. Do you think she could be on the way out? I've put the usual tonics in the drinking water, and I gave her a little bath, wrapped her up in a towel, and she watched TV with us for an hour on Saturday night.
  12. Yes, it's made me think twice about which ones to give away and keep now. We've got a couple of white stars, and their eggs are always perfect. Maybe I'll go for more white stars in future. I do love my gingers though. They're friendly little birds.
  13. Thanks for your reply, that's really helpful. Is this one of the downsides to having hybrids then, do you think? I've only got hybrids. I've always thought they're brilliant in every way; docile, loads of personality, friendly, cheaper than pure breeds, and prolific layers. I've struggled to see the benefits of having pure breeds. Is this one of the benefits of pure breeds, then? Less problems with eggs?
