Chicken Eggspert

Chicken Eggspert (2/19)



  1. I watched this last night. Not sure I like Francine Raymond as a presenter. link
  2. I would recommend Black Rock and Speckeldy Marran. My Bluebelle was also a good layer.
  3. Or is he in the pub.........carpark telling his foxy friends about a mad woman in a nightie throwing herself at him.
  4. I've had to do that a few times and we have 2 extensions on too.
  5. Many moons ago I read some where on here (can't find it now) that one of the Flash Cleaners had been quite succesful at killing Redmite when used in a lab. Can anyone remember it? Which cleaner was it please?
  6. Mine love dry jumbo oats but only eat normal oats when it's out for the Robin. They love pasta, rice,blitzed raw carrot and cabbage, grapes but leave raisins. There favourite game is eating woodlice from the underside of rocks and stones that OH has turned over for them.
  7. There is also Hinchliffes in Huddersfield. They supply alot of breeders. They had a huge fire a few months ago but said they would still carry on business but best to ring just to make sure they have POL available. My last 2 came from there and my first girls were from Storrs. Jody does have some lovely hens too. http://www.hinchliffes.com/breeds.php
  8. Well done Sammiboo regarding MSE and the single thread. I posted on the grabbit board. Hope it doesn't get merged with yours. (iona)
  9. My Polish uncles black hunting dog was called Czarny (Charny) except when he was in trouble, then he got his full name Czarneski.
  10. There is also Hinchliffes Farm in Netherton Huddersfield. I got my 2 new girls from them but my first 3 came from Storrs. Hinchliffes have had a fire that destroyed their shop and restaurant but they are still supplying hens. http://www.hinchliffes.com/chickens.php
  11. Mine love new potatoes ...held for them of course. I make a mash with raw carrot peelings and a chopped carrot( supposed to get rid of worms naturally), apple and pear skins + cores, raw cabbage/cauliflower or broccoli all whizzed up in a mini blender. I add this to layer pellets soaked in hot water. Mix it all up with a pinch or two of poultry spice. If I have any left over cooked veg I add that too. They love it.
  12. Our new Blackrock is nicknamed Digger as she is happiest when digging craters in the pen. We have the eglu run on 1ft of bark chippings so the digging is easy for her. But I do worry when she excavates near the logs/tree stumps in case she is hit by them falling in her holes. She had competion during the night though.....a MOLE! It decided that the pen area was worth a lookfor worms (fat chance with Digger about). Yesterday it tunneled under the back of the eglu house probably had more luck there as its the only place she hasn't dug but she has dug a crater in front of the sleeper the eglu front rests on. The other two will soon need a ladder to get into the house!
