  1. You could try removing the worst bully then re introduce her in a week or so . She won’t be top girl then .
  2. I’ve brought a second hand mk1 cube but I need a run to go with it . Do any of you lovely people have one you’d like to sell before I get a new one from omlet 😩. Many thanks
  3. I actually have another dog so two altogether so at least they have each other . They seem ok . They sniffed her when she came home to be buried. I think they understand she’s gone . This is the three of them together the day before we had her pts . X
  4. Thank you all so much . She’s gone bless her . She had a lovely last walk and even had a dip in the river one last time. The vet said she had lots of other things going on so I’m comforted in the fact that she’s not in pain anymore. Its still so awful and I miss her so much. The worse thing is the empty spot on the sofa 😢 . X
  5. Excellent condition only selling as I need a cube since morehens has taken over ... The run extension is only a month old also lots of covers included one is brand new . Roosting bars are new too.
  6. Yes I’m always on there but always seem to miss out! 😩
  7. Hi I’m looking for a cube preferably with a run for my expanding flock ! I have an eglu with 3 meter run for possible part exchange if you are looking to downsize. Live near Stamford but can travel a reasonable distance. Thanks for reading.
  8. She’s booked in for tomorrow at 2.30. I feel like my heart is breaking but I know it’s for the best. Thanks so much everyone for your advice. Xx Here she is as a puppy. 14 years have passed to quickly . 😍😢😢😢 x
  9. Thanks everyone. I will definitely enquire about the vet coming to us . I’m sure it’s something they will do although Toffee has always loved going to the vets as it always involves getting a treat!! She loves her food bless her ... We have two other dogs . So much to think about. Such a horrible time . I really appreciate your responses it’s very kind of you all. X
  10. Thank you so much for your reply’s . I guess I am prolonging it for me rather than her ! She’s had a nice day today so will I give her a good weekend with lots of treats and maybe make the appointment for early next week ... x
  11. Please help I am in such a dilemma. Our 14 year old cocker spaniel , toffee, has an inoperable tumour on her face. It’s quite smelly now , about 2 inches wide and there’s nothing else we can do for her . I need to make a decision on when to have her pts but I feel so heartbroken and guilty for ending her life . Shes still eating and drinking and going for short walks and seems happy in herself. Shes rubbing her face with the tumour on quite a bit and I have to bathe it every day with hibiscrub .She’s deaf and blind in one eye too. Its just knowing when to do it really, the vets won’t say and I feel so awful having to do this to her . It’s just knowing when it’s the right time that I am struggling with .... Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
  12. Hi, I am selling on behalf of my friend who has a green eglu classic with run extension making it a 3 meter run . Only a couple of years old in excellent condition. Location is between Peterborough and Stamford. Please message if interested and I’ll pass her number on . £270.00 Ono
  13. I’ve got a grandpas feeder . It was really expensive but after a couple of weeks my hens were using it no problem. They were wary of it to begin with but they soon overcome that . I would definitely recommend one especially if you have a rat problem and to prevent them too.
  14. Hi, yes they do . I actually prefer them to the old style ones . The hens don’t care either way 😂
  15. Thank you, I have a pear tree in the way at the other end which makes it difficult, we’ve already moved it once to accommodate the run ! The only other thing would be to add another 2 meters where the cube is and put the cube on the side of the run instead on the lawn .. what do you think? that would be cheaper and easier. ive just picked up 4 more ladies who are currently in the spare eglu in one half of the run .
  16. Bless them ! How big is their run then if you don’t mind me asking? I guess it must come down to cost , a shame really 😩 it’s like the new cube ....
  17. Thanks for the advice, I know what you mean , I can’t understand why the run squares are not the same size on the higher bits. I do love mine though, previous to this my husband had made me a big walk in run run but a rat still managed to get in ... It’s reassuring that you feel they’ve got enough room , I just feel bad they can’t free range but I know the fox would soon pay us a visit, it’s already had my neighbors flock plus the second lot they purchased!! 😢
  18. Hi, I currently have a cube with 2 meter run and 6x2 walk in run as in pictures below. I’ve saved really hard and sold some precious things to pay for all this and it’s my pride and joy lol! omlet have 10 % off extensions at the moment and I am considering extending it so it’s 3 meters wide . Do you think it would look silly if I do this? I’ll have to change the position of the cube too. It will have to go to the other end .It’s a right pain but the hens are confined to the run permanently as we have fox problems and I just want to give them as much space as I can . I just have 3 hens at the moment but am planning on getting 3 more at the weekend. I cant tell the OH of my plans until I’ve made up my mind as he’ll probably go mad 😂😂😂 Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
  19. Hi all, long story short I’ve just sold my go up and purchased a secondhand cube mk1. I’m not keen on the look of the new ones , they just don’t look as robust as the old ones . Why on earth did omlet change the design???? What are everyone’s thoughts on this ? Anyway, due to a bad fox problem I’ve decided my 3 girls just aren’t safe to free range so I’ve sold my beloved Emma Bridgewater crockery collection to fund a new omlet walk in run 😂. My question is, would I be better to have the cube attached to the outside of the run or inside?? I’m getting the 2x4 run . I just thought it would be easier to clean on the outside and the girls would have a couple more meters extra run from the cube. Any thoughts would be fab thanks .
