  1. I did paper and then one bag and then bin. It was definitely old age as an ex bat and her sisters are fine so I wasn’t worried about bird flu.
  2. I lost a chicken last night. In the past I’ve always bagged them up and put them in the normal waste bin (except the recycling bin incident) but I’ve realised that sticking a chicken in a plastic bag isn’t good for the environment at all. I have a load of strips of paper packaging. I was thinking of rolling her in it and then putting her in the bin. Do you reckon that would be ok? I want her to decompose and go back to the Earth.
  3. If it’s the batteries, can you not just change them. I assume just holding Ok down doesn’t do it.
  4. Thought this would be the best reentry spot I’m not really new but I probably don’t know most of you so... hello

    RIP Poet...

    Rip Justine Love to Ian and all
  6. I'm going to have to use wire as they've taken to digging out. Takes them about an hour and its just not possible. also means no runs on the grass because they trash it
  7. Sorry must apologis for my temperetal keyboard. I have got fed up of having to correct every 3rd letter
  8. I know the dimensions of the bars are on here somewhre but can't find them and don't want to go out in the rain. I don't need the actual bar sizes just the size that they fit into on the floor if that makes sense
  9. I ssume because gttig a passport is expnsive and a drivig lcense even more so. Uber - I feel for you as I suffered exactly the same problem. I seem to remember a provisional driving licnese is cheaper though and official enough that most places accept it
  10. DH came into the room to me sobbing 'you know I'm normally a hardhearted cah, this DIYSOS is soooo sad, wahhh'
  11. I never knew this either Hope it an be saved for you
  12. We always wanted to move to Wales but DH has found that because he works in sales and can't speak Welsh he has no chance. Which is fair enough, if we moved to France we would be expected to speak French My parents have a house, and will be living in Mid Wales when they move back from overseas. They are retired though so no need for the language even though they both have a basic grasp. Mum had lessons and Dad went to Welsh speakng school. I can't wait take the children and spend long summers with them and a jaleous of anyone who does get to move there. It is our retirement plan too
  13. I always bought organic free range from supermarkets occasionally butchers before, though I got chickens when I was 25ish so didn't have many years of shopping for myself first. Now all the chickens in the freezer started their lives as eggs with us, pork and lamb we buy by the animal (or hlf) from a friend whose standards of welfare are very high. Can't say it's having chickens that has changed this, more that getting chickens was part of our change.
  14. I ended up not using a pram at all for my last. They were more hassle than theyre worth
  15. In a way I don't blame the British farms. The Government need to step up and ban the importing
  16. Makes you wonder why if these people are so obviosuly intelligent and inventive why they don't find a more honest means
  17. Ok brilliant thanks. dh says there a patch of slabs that would work brillantly. I have a run I can move around on the grass during the days easily. Happy days
  18. That's why I was asking. i hope to put them on the lawn for a bit most days but need a permanent patch. Would aubiose work for rabbits?
  19. Currently our boys live on our paddock and I move them every couple of days. n a couple of weeks we're moving into a rented house with a much smaller garden and I won't be able to carry on doing this. They'll need to stay in one spot. Can I keep them on something, like I keep my chickens on hemcore (or equiv)? Any other tips but preventing boredom, destruction and ill health in their new lifestyle?
  20. I still can't find it to watch Your dh was bang on with the fishing though think I may email Rob Yorke
  21. Got it, it was called the great escape
  22. Do you remember it then? because I'm beginning to wonder if I made it up. Several people think they can but aren't sure
  23. I know a few of you will have seen me already asking this but its doing my head in so I am asking everywhere All I can remember was he was a posh bloke in his late 20s or 30s. Perhaps called Rob who rented a cottage in Wales off 2 or 3 elderly women. He had three chickens he named after them, one was called Bronwen. He also kept a goat. It was on around 10 years ago, It was called something like escape to the country (I know thats the housey program) It was not H F-W Any ideas?
