  1. Hi SD my two friends and I went to Düsseldorf last year for markets, we had a great time. Much gluvine ( not sure of spelling) hot wine consumed. We also did a pub crawl tour where maximum age I think was suggested as 50, we are ahem a bit older and it was hilarious. We are off to Budapest on 22nd to have a look there. Next September we have booked to go to Mama Mia the Party,so no Christmas markets next year 😔
  2. Yes, chloramphenicol 0.5 which is for eyes. Ears need to be 5-10 percent strength 🙄
  3. Thank you Patricia, I got to speak to my GP who reassured me that ENT consultants prescribe drops even when ear is perforated despite leaflet warning. She said I definitely got wrong script as it was eye drops I was given and if that medicine is used in ear it needs to be stronger. She then changed it to Gentamycin. So hope it works.
  4. Hi, wise ones. I wonder if anyone else has had ear problems. I have a long history of ear problems since childhood resulting in a permanent perforated ear. I haven’t had any issues for years until 3 weeks ago when I woke up with ear discharge. Seen by GP and given usual penicillin antibiotics. These didn’t really do anything so was seen at beginning of this week and given ear drops. On reading leaflet it said not to be used if ear is perforated,rang receptionist who spoke to GP who said they should be okay. This didn’t fill me with confidence and I held off until swab result came back, I now have been prescribed different drops which also say don’t use if ear is perforated! My daughter is a pharmacist and she says doctors don’t always know the contraindications of all the different meds and I am left not really knowing what to do. When I rang last time I felt I was being a pest and now I may have to ring again. Has anyone used drops with ear perforation and no ill effects.
  5. And mine,13 chickens and lucky to get 2 a day 🙄
  6. My daughters friend got Ikea Kitchen,got her own fitter,then went elsewhere for expensive worktops,apparently it looks fabulous.
  7. Very helpful, on a similar note do you do same with dahlias, lift after frost or before.
  8. I quite like how the lovely Noel calls patients owners mum and dad, Soapdragon. In some cases they see themselves as that. My daughter has had two transplants and her body couldn’t cope with pregnancy and her little doggie is her ‘ baby ‘ . On the phone we get full run down of his day and sleeps etc. For me my dogs are well , dogs and while I love them to bits they are dogs and I would think long and hard before putting them through most of the big surgeries Noel does. But for some mummies and daddies their little pets are their world. Hope squirrel is coping with vets.
  9. Good luck to the little fella, he’s lucky you came across him.
  10. No egg shells were grand. I have got small holders crumb just in case they have beak problems. Though beaks look fine, 3 today so hope egg production has resumed.
  11. Happy birthday, they are lovely. I too like the bantams, lovely colour.
  12. Looks yummy. Onto Kefir, yes I froze mine for a month while we were away and I don’t think it is as good, maybe imagination. What’s the maximum you would leave it in milk? I have left it 3 days as I forgot to pick up organic milk. It looked and smelt awful, but we drank it anyway, though at that point you wonder are you just drinking off milk. My grains seem to be not multiplying as much as before they were frozen
  13. Looks good. Mine was so tight I struggled to get the hook in to each loop and gave up.
  14. My previous next door neighbour had them inside and they were getting in via drains under the house following building work. They got Rentakil out which was pricey. They took some months to source the problem as they were also going up inside cavity wall and had been in the attic undetected for some time.
  15. ‘ the rescues are egg machines ‘ that is the very reason I got new rescue girls.Which is why I am so baffled by the lack of eggs.
  16. Def not laying else where as have been in WIR and their fenced off garden,which of course is now bare earth and deleafed trees to chicken height so an egg would be easy to spot.
  17. Can anyone offer any advice? We had 5 brown hens about 18 months, 2 older hens and 2 bantams. All stopped laying in the hot weather. They had flubenvet, red mite was discovered and appears to be gone and no eggs. So 5 new ex batts got. Happy days , 5 eggs most days. All re wormed with Marriages pellets with flubenvet. Poultry tonic in water, ACV once a month and no obvious red mite or lice. Now 1 or 2 eggs per day from 14 chickens. The feed is generic layers pellets from Jollyes or equestrian place and can’t find stockist of fancier feed and usually get hefty carriage charges to Ireland. I really don’t know what more to do. There doesn’t seem to be egg eater as checked several times a day and no stained wood shavings in nest box .Any thoughts much appreciated.
  18. Sounds amazing,will def look into this,we had big problem this summer.
  19. If they are in derelict house you could contact the council.
  20. I would get her to drink as much as you can to keep her hydrated. If she is drinking and looking bright enough maybe could wait until to morrow. Is she likely to have eaten something she shouldn’t? If she is an inside dog and you’re sure she hasn’t eaten anything poisonous or a toy or something, it could be simple upset tummy,our vet recommends boiled rice until diarrhoea settles. ( I think you mean polyp )
  21. AyeAyemagpie just keep check around edges of WIR,ours used to be on bare earth until we saw signs of a rat burrowing under and in. We put an edging of paving slabs around edge of one WIR and completely covered other one.
  22. We use wood chips or at least we did until we went to B and Q and they no longer do them. We pooh picked and as you say picked up chips at same time. It went in compost bin.Every 4 months we cleat completely out and put around shrubs in garden. Which is what we did a week ago and now have to try and source some. OH put down wood shavings which is now a soggy mess.
  23. I think it is a huge design flaw of Omlet runs,that they are not a smaller gauge to prevent rodents getting in. I loved the look of the cube run but choose a WIR from another supplier as it was wire meld and rodent proof. I don’t think Mr Rat will give up anytime soon.
  24. Maybe not so expensive if dentist does it for dental reasons,rather than cosmetic.
  25. Thank you both for replies,will do. Why is forum in Chinese, is it spammers?
