  1. Editing posts

    Since the new Omlet update I've not been able to edit my posts unless you do it really quickly, but I've just been reading some other posts and the post has been edited almost 38 minutes later. How does this work ?
  2. Been accepted for a degree!!

    Well done
  3. **Thread of little facts & things**....3

    That does look like a beautiful park Took me a while to work out what the censored word was though
  4. Day 26 and still broody!

    So hubby let the latest broody out today while I was at work, only for me to get home and find her back in the nest box I did turf her out and she did stay in the run for the rest of the day. Need to keep a really close eye on all of them tomorrow

    I wonder if hubby would let me do that with mine Yours do look very at home on the floor
  6. Day 26 and still broody!

    I've never raised mine off the ground although I suppose it makes sense. I was more worried about the Pekins's feet being on the wire and that it could contribute to Bumblefoot - mine haven't had this for ages now thankfully - so my crates are just on the woodchip.
  7. So sorry to read about your wife xx But just wanted to say how kind of you to offer your Eglus to someone and that it was a lovely thing to do Can't wait to see pictures of them in their new home.
  8. Curtain disaster, any advice welcome

    Customer services have been absolutely fabulous They gave me a "remedy" but sadly it didn't work. I phoned them again just now to say that it didn't work, and that hubby and I said that you can mostly see it when the sun is on them, and since we shut the curtains at night we're hoping you can't see the blobs and for them not to worry. They have asked us to send in some photos and that they will do their best but not sure what that means. All I can say is that they have been brilliant and have tried really hard to help me
  9. Day 26 and still broody!

    They poop through the bars I have had 3 new broodies this year and each one has gone into the cage - sometimes they need an extra day and night just to make sure. It is hard to watch them in there but as long as they are safe and have food and water, they soon get used to it. Lets face it , they have to. The time soon passes to when you can let them out again
  10. I've washed our lounge curtains before in my Miele washing machine with no problems. They are dry clean but have never caused a problem and they still didn't cause a problem today. What HAS caused the problem is what I washed them with - a Bold liquitab - and now my curtains have purple splodges on them - they are cream. My washing machine has a curtain wash button and I think this was the problem. It gives the curtains like a dust wash before it washes them properly. Unfortunately I had to wash the curtains separately and didn't spot the purple blobs on the first one before I'd put the second one in. I washed the first one again in a straight liquid detergent but the purple blobs are still there. They now both have purple splodges on. I was going to phone Bold after I get in from work tomorrow but just wondered if any of you have any ideas
  11. Mon emmenager en france/My move to France

    Just such beautiful photos I wouldn't say I was jealous or anything ............
  12. Another broody chicken 😬

    I have had to leave my broody cage in the run because as soon as it goes back in the shed I need it back again the next day 5 out of my 6 have been broody. I was just thinking that a certain chick from last year hadn't managed it like her 2 siblings then, lo and behold she is broody today - so in the cage she has gone. One of the other chicks from last year has been broody twice so far. Can't wait for it to cool down
  13. Teeny tiny egg!

    Ooo-er, I thought an egg without a shell was called a softie. Oh well, we learn something new every day I love the idea of a Malteser egg.
  14. Teeny tiny egg!

    These tiny eggs are called wind eggs - no idea why. I have had a few but was really disappointed to find no yolk inside like Cat tails mentioned.
  15. Try hanging some bunting up with citronella oil, lavender oil and eucalyptus oil on - it smells really nice to us but helps repel the flies Or you can use the same mixture on those little terracotta saucers and dot them around the outside of the run.
