  1. Adding some lime flour to her diet may help.
  2. Looks like a good lot of sudocrem is needed on those sore bottoms. I would say feather pecking but sudocrem would help if it is a skin irritation or pecking either way.
  3. Join Yorkshire Chicken Community on Facebook. Lots of folk on there with good homes. Sorry you are having to rehome them.
  4. Quite a few of mine just roost on top of the coop (it is in a covered WIR), how they are not freezing to death I don't know. They have 3 coops to choose from should they want to sleep inside. They are happy though so I just leave them to it.
  5. Yep been de-cluttering here too. 3 loads to the tip last week, garage still needs more organising and sorting through but I can fit the bikes in it now! Clothes, toys, books, furniture all set for the charity shop. Done hours of gardening too so on the next dry evening will have a bonfire. I can't believe I have let things get so bad.
  6. Not sure what egg drop is but it could be any number of things. It may be an idea to sit her on a hot water bottle - or something gently warming. I find feeding them honey water helps if they have become weak.
  7. Happened to an ex-bat of mine. Nothing would keep it in. Really sad.
  8. Maybe he has a free range farm and doesn't mind having non layers. Other than that I think he'd be offered money from the companies who buy chickens for food or by a charity looking to rehome them. Perhaps the latter offers him more than 50p a chicken so he'd make a small profit?
  9. What is boils down to is that some people are selfish and lazy. These are the same people who park in parent and child parking bays when they don't have children and park on double yellow lines to pop in the shop to buy a paper etc. I think some people have forgotten how to walk 10 yards.
  10. It arrived yesterday but it took me until today to get round to setting it up. I love it. Will make any size of cup I want and I have enjoyed the latte and cappuccino I have had out of it so far. Now I just need to order some more pods...
  11. Well after much decision making and several times deciding not to bother getting one at all. I had finally got it down to the Oster Prima Latte and the Delonghi Lattissima. Both are supposed to make a latte at the touch of a button (i.e. frothing the milk and putting it into the cup for you - how lazy is that ) .They could be purchased for a similar price too. If I'd been quicker the Oster would have been much cheaper in the sales at Currys but never mind. So eventually I have ordered a Lattissima. It does tie you into the nespresso pods but you can get clones and it seems more available than the Oster which I find reassuring. I shall let you know what I think when it arrives.
  12. It'll be hard right now but remember all the good happy times. Sending you my love.
  13. An awful time for you. You'll know when you need to make the decision. There is no wrong choice. I hope she eats and drinks something and rallies for you. xxx
  14. As you say she is not getting any worse being on the drip. I hope they sort it quickly for your sake as well as Rosies. It is that horrible 'quality of life' debate we all have when a pet (rubbish term they are much more than that) is old and ill. I really feel for you and hope for the best.
  15. Thanks for your help everyone. I shall just have to go round a few friends houses and try theirs out!
  16. I wrote a long reply then my internet hiccuped and it was lost. Suffice to say I feel for you and I hope she comes home soon.
  17. I have been looking at Dolce Gusto, Tassimo, Nespresso, Senseo etc. I know that the Senseo machines can have cheap Lidl pods in them and that it is easy to get a coffee duck to fit. Delonghi seem to use ESE pods or ground coffee. My brain has fizzled out with it all - I need a coffee lol I'm after something that is quick and easy. My OH says stick with instant coffee and use enjoy the lattes when we go out. He may be right...
  18. I've been thinking the same thing. The run was originally put on a base of gravel that over the years had been pushed solid. Chickens are amazing things and have managed to dig it all up so when I clean the old bedding out I also clean out gravel/soil too. I think slabs might be the way forward.
  19. That is a wonderful post. Especially as I have my dog snuzzling up to me gently. We could learn a lot from them.
  20. Thought I would add an update to this. Annie does not like the fish flavoured one - it was okay for a bit but she soon got fussy again. Also the company have still not got back to me Needless to say this is not the dog food for me and my dog.
  21. Okay folks I am after some advice. I only drink decaf coffee and especially like lattes (although don't drink all the time because they are more calorific than normal coffee). Is there a suitable (cheap) coffee machine that will make them. Is it best to buy a cheap pod system (and get a coffee duck if necessary so you can use ground coffee) and a separate milk thing. I don't want too much faff. Basically I want the moon on a stick so can anyone help?
