  1. I let them out - they roamed around for 30 minutes - spot of sunbathing and then returned to the WIR on their own where I gave them some meal worms - so thank you - Photo of H & N sunbathing...
  2. Thank you - I have kept them in 10 days in the run - and they are looking for treats when I come in - so I will let them out soon - with the dog safely out the way !!
  3. Unfortunately, I cannot let them free range all day otherwise my dog would have to be in all the time - my dog would love a chicken or two for lunch !!! So I will keep them in then let them out last an hour before bed and hope they head home Thanks for the help
  4. Thank you - my other 2 do come quickly but I was worried that the others are used to free ranging all day they may never want to go back - I will try next week and see what happens !!
  5. Hi - we rescued 3 girls at the weekend, they were from a free range farm so in good condition and we have named them "H", "E" and "N" We have 2 existing hens (Chi and Ken ) who happily free range and will return to the WIR as soon as call them and shake the corn . I am assuming the 3 new ones are used to free ranging all day so not sure when I should let them out or how to get them back in again easily. Any advice would be much appreciated Thank you
  6. We have 2 budgies that are at least 10 years old and they have never had a bath either ..They are outside in an aviary so probably have a shower occasionally !!!
  7. We had a water softener for about 8 years (big salt blocks) - we all drank it no problems and were advised only not to use for making up baby bottles...really helped with my sons eczema - in fact we knew when to change the blocks as his eczema would flare up....unfortunately, it has now broken and never got round to replacing. Definitely easier to keep things clean when it worked and used a lot less shampoo- again live in Kent with really hard water xx
  8. Here is one of my favourite easy Vegan recipes --Sweet potato & black bean quinoa chilli - just chop everything and throw in the slow cooker 1 Large sweet Potato, 1 red onion, 3 garlic gloves, 1 red pepper, 1 can black beans, 2 tbsp tomato puree, 1 tin tomatoes, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 1/2 tbsp of chilli powder, 2tsp cumin, 2tsp paprika, 1tsp coriander This was my first every vegetarian meal I tried - and loved it.
  9. I cannot use a public toilet where you cannot reach the door to slam it shut - it doesn't matter if it has a lock I hate the thought of someone walking in ....I read a very bizarre thread on mumsnet years ago about people who couldn't use any toliet unless they were naked which was very entertaining reading !!!
  10. I had a friend who had a cat called "Dog" and a dog called "Cat" 🤣....I love giving the animals long names - we have a guinea pig called Galadriel and a hen called Hermoine - I just love hearing the 2 year olds I look after trying to say the names....
  11. I always end up getting my jeans/trousers from charity shops there always seems to loads from different shops - so I get all the styles/ brands in one place as I hate shopping !!
  12. Thank you for the replies ....they are planning on removing teeth, putting some temporary ones in ..leaving and putting more in after 6 months ... I think we are going to look at a few places over here but the thought of it makes me feel ill....I blame years of him living on pepsi and coke before I met him !!!!!
  13. Hi I haven't posted for a while but have always found you lovely Omlet people so helpful for all matters and not just chickens... My husband (nearly 50) has been told that he has to lose 8 teeth and either have dentures or implants... For Implants he has been quoted £14000 ....we don't know anyone who has had implants and struggling to find reviews apart from all the actual dentists site ...can anyone offer any wise advice... Also we stumbled across a website saying in budapest the price is signifucantally cheaper and te gurantee 15 years longer so if anyone has flown out there to have implants we would love to know what you think, Thank you and hope you are all well Helen
  14. Hi - we needed a will in place quickly - so for now we used an online company that phone you up go through everything and then set it up ....unfortunately, I was very disappointed as the advice was valid advice, recommending additional things such as power of attorney etc , but ended up more like a sales call (Luckily I am quite good at saying no or it would have been very expensive !! )- the end result was I have created my will quickly as required and not that expensive but when time allows will visit a solicitor and ensure everything is in place correctly
  15. Please let me know what you think ? - I have heard great things but do idea what it is and never had time to do a course ...If my phone lets me I will install the app and have a go over Easter.
