    The Weather Thread #9

    Hello Happy Person 😃 It's been beautiful here too after a damp and foggy start; walking the dogs this afternoon was a joy, we sat on the grass in the sun for a while. Yes, those are beehives along the headland of a field in the 3rd photo

    Marriages with Flubenvet question

    It will be fine - I am never particularly precise about the amount I use so long as you are being sensible.
  3. Woohoo, well done! So they do have some stock after all... I may just contact them for new cube clips. Mine are bent out of useful parameters
  4. Ok, so I seem to be suffering from mal demarquement after we took a boat round the Greek islands. I am well used to boats and sailing, so this is very weird; slight lightheadedness and sense of motion, but no other symptoms. Can anyone reassure me that it won't last long?

    Wanted - Eglu Cube

    Have you looked on ebay? Quite a few on there :)
  6. OK, so that is a Classic mark 2 and you are quite right - it is missing the simple metal clip that's screwed into the bottom of the poo tray. I can't photograph mine for your reference as it's out of use at the moment and stacked up against the fence. It really is just a simple bent metal clip - perhaps someone on here can post a photo of theirs for example. I would pop a couple of weighty items against the back of the Eglu until you get it sorted It really is just a bent clip, which easily gets bent out of true. I haven't had one come completely off before though and I've had plenty of Eglus and Cubes in my time.
  7. They used to do all the spares and being just round the corner form me, it was really easy to pop over and pick something up. They decided to concentrate on the Go! and Cube mark 2, which are both cheaper to make (and easier to break!). I don't like the new models at all - they are MUCH smaller and made from a ghastly, brittle plastic.

    Fantastic view Jude - enjoy your trip Good luck Lewis :)
  9. Omlet is no longer supplying spares for the original styles; I could do with new clips for my mark 1 Cube, but will have to make some myself. Can you upload a photo of your classic and the poo tray? I'll be able to advise which version it is.

    Hanging grub in mainly glass run

    Me three - I use gravity feeders/drinkers or troughs with the anti-climb struts on top Yes, that concerns me too - Mesh sides with shading on the top might work though.
  11. I'd put slabs underneath it, which extend out beyond the edges of the run; that will prevent anything digging in and make it easier to clean. My cubes (mark 1) have slabbing under the runs, clear tarps over the run (top and sides) and Aubiose hemp bedding in the run.

    What has happened to the forum?

    Suggest that they shop around; there are quite a few options/variations

    I like those runs Val - a friend has one, but said that the mesh it was supplied with was rubbish so they used their own weldmesh. I do like to see an OH working!

    Haha, devious little madam. One of mine does that too - cue much panic until I remember what she is up to.

    The Weather Thread #9

    We've had a mixed day here, in the middle of the country - lashing wind and rain all night, with quite a lot of surface water on the roads when took the dogs out first thing. It cleared around lunchtime and the sun was gorgeous, so I let the laydees out for a play. Apart from the odd shower and a hail storm, it has been nice and it's still clear now, so expect a frost in the morning.

    It's almost like a replay of this time last year, so expect a freeze later in the month!

    I took advantage of the rain stopping earlier (or so I thought) to let the girls out for a play... it has started to thrash with rain again, but at least they have the option to play out or not.

    A friend in Cornwall just sent me a photo of their morning dog walk on the beach - looks like a disaster movie!!! It is pretty nasty here - the chooks would usually free range when I am wfh, but not today.

    It is windy and raining fitfully here, has been since the early hours. 7deg though, so not cold. Off out with the dogs in a few moments.

    Me too, I am working from home tomorrow, and usually take a break to get the dogs out. Shall be disappointed if it is wet.

    The wind was howling all night, and the rain lashing at the Velux windows, windy today, but after initial murk, it cleared to look like a lovely day... from what I could see of it from my desk!
