  1. I’ll let you know tomorrow, mine are like their owner and tend to eat anything 😂😂
  2. Will these and the seeds be ok for my chickens, raw?
  3. Thanks DM. That isn’t such a bad idea confining them to barracks for the winter. Mine are 100 feet away from my window when they’re free ranging but seeing how fast Mr Fox 🦊 can run, I’m not sure I’d have got there in time. With corn and another treat each day, they do seem ok. I did wonder if my OAP skyline would keep going but she’s ok, nearly 10 years old. She’s my favourite but don’t tell the others!
  4. Cat tails, yes, exactly! First time of a fox visiting our garden in the afternoon in over 10 years. Admittedly didn’t go near the chickens but that would have been different if they’d been free ranging! Hungry Mr Fox!
  5. Thank you both.I’ll take a look and yes I know re outbreaks, just a bit fed up with them atm! Meanwhile!! Just as well my girls weren’t out this afternoon....as we had our first afternoon visit from Mr Fox 🦊! Always comes at night but never daytime. Had the nerve to eat the food off my bird table and returned after we chased him first time too. 😡😡😡
  6. Any suggestions with boredom busters please. I’ve used a 1.4kg pecking block which was great but quite expensive but great hentertainment! Other than that veg peelings etc. Feel sorry for the girls not being able to go out, they have a decent size run, but it’s not the same as free ranging. And how long is a piece of string, I see there’s another outbreak in East Devon, hopefully that will be it and they can go out again soon.
  7. Well done! I did the same several years ago and put them in my utility room in several dog crates etc. The smell the next morning was rather ugh and I decided I wouldn’t repeat the exercise.... I did have 10 chickens then though!
  8. Update! Absolutely delicious with boiling the fruit in brandy. Everyone loved it...will definitely repeat next year!
  9. Thank you so very much Soapdragon and Columbian. I make this lovely recipe a lot! Most weeks! It’s a staple in our house but I’ve never tried it with alcohol but will try this year. Columbian , your recipe looks lovely too, so I’ll give it a go. Thank you so much. 🍰
  10. Has anyone added alcohol to this cake? Would like to add brandy but not sure at what point I should add it...boil it in it ????! Or add it after
  11. Does anyone know how likely it is to spread ? Ie would it be better to keep my chickens in with immediate effect? I live in Surrey so the nearest outbreak is Kent as far as I know.
  12. Loved Bill Bailey’s routine last night. Fabulous 😀.
  13. Oh dear, according to the Press, looks as if Maisy might be partaking in extra curricular Strictly activity with HRVY. Never mind, I’ll enjoy watching the show 😊👍.
