  1. i think the operative word is Catering...

    I cook for my family, I don't cater :)

    except for catering to the girls needs :lol::lol:


    Sadly not that simple:


    You cannot feed any kind of catering waste to farmed animals.Catering waste is defined as all waste food, whether raw or cooked, including used cooking oils (UCO), which arise in premises such as:

    • Household kitchens

  2. I think it's pretty clear TBH - the email clearly states that there is no legislation on feeding leftovers, and the link, if you select Poultry Welfare (on or off farm), no mention is made regarding leftovers. Therefore, if there's no legislation, then it's okay to feed, assuming that in so doing you are not compromising the five freedoms, by e.g. providing leftovers that have been contaminated by being in contact with something which may prove harmful.


    I found it useful - thanks for posting, I will be printing off and putting in the chicken file!

  3. Excellent!

    I remember I got my Cube without hubby knowing (an amazing Freecycle find!!), and when I brought it home, he told me I was out of order for taking something we would never use, I should have let somebody take it who would use it, as there was NO WAY we were getting chickens. The next day when he was at work, I scrubbed and jet washed the whole thing, and put it together before he got home from work...he wasn't impressed, but eventually agreed to us having 2 chickens. So I got 6!! Now he has agreed we need a walk in run, and he secretly loves them just as much as I do :D


    So anyway, the point of my story is simply that it is certainly doable for one woman to assemble the cube single handedly...so why wait? Get out there and BUILD THAT CUBE!!!!! :lol:

  4. Absolutely! At the moment, I have just made various sponge based mixtures, victoria, chocolate, carrot etc., none of which I think would survive the postal system intact :lol: . However, I am going to try fruitcake pops! I have just started soaking the fruit in Jamaican rum, so will make the cake in a few weeks. Not sure how the decoration will go, as it will be too fiddly to marzipan them, so they may not be as pretty as the sponges...but you are more than welcome to be part of the tasting panel :lol:

  5. Nanny Ogg loves chickens, tortoises, purple, cardmaking, just about to try my hand at quilting, reading (Terry Pratchett and Chris Brookmyre mainly, plus chickeny, foody, and crafty books and mags).

    Love cooking, particularly Indian, Jamaican and Italian cuisine, enjoy baking too, cake pops are a recent discovery (well, last summer), so make those when I have time.

    Planning my WIR is a fave pastime, it's been in the planning stage for well over a year now! Maybe one fine day it will actually get built!

    Love comedies and documentaries, can't bear scary tv or films.

    Love my allotment, the feeling of eating a meal knowing that 90% of what's on your plate is home grown is fantastic :D


    What I will absolutely love though, is whatever my crafty swapper makes for me :D
