    Chickens in the heat

    They love anything with sugar! Milk products might not be the way to go though. They can’t really digest it and it can cause some tummy upsets. Better keep it to green vegetables.

    If you have a kitchen scale, you can measure out 1 g and then take half. Although it will never be as accurate. But you will be in the right order of magnitude.

    Holiday season, tourists and so on

    Jersey sounds great! I struggle finding trips that suit me and are affordable on my own. If you travel by yourself, you often end up paying for close to two people!

    What does the bottle/box say? 0,05 grams sounds like very little. And I really don’t think it would correspond to 5 mL but it all depends on the density of the powder.

    Holiday season, tourists and so on

    Booked myself a holiday for the Autumn break. Told the lady I wanted forest. And definitely not a group trip or round trip! I like being on my own. So off go Germany on the motorcycle for a week.

    The Customer is Always Right

    Yes! Loving both! But mostly the Repair Shop because of the heart felt stories and because most products from the customer is always right are not available on this side of the water.

    What have you all been making...part two...

    Thanks Soapy! I browse a lot on Ravelry and mostly go for free patterns. There are absolutely loads on there. The dino is for a history teaching colleague. And I just found the fox too cute. Haven’t done any formal commissions, mostly because I’m often afraid I won’t have the time for it. But if you have any serious requests, you can always contact me! 😉

    **Thread of little facts & things**....3

    I have one of those zapping tennis rackets. Very satisfying to get an annoying fly out of the way! Still have pheromone fly traps outside too. But not the original Red Tops anymore, because I hated removing them when full. And the flies would make more flies inside the trap before it was actually “full”. But I found the same pheromone stuff in a bottle. Bought two of those caps you can stick on a plastic bottle to turn it into a wasp catcher. Just add some of the pheromone powder to an old water bottle, add some water and stick it into the cap and hang it up! And when I need to remove it, I can just screw the bottle cap back on and toss the thing in the trash!

    **Thread of little facts & things**....3

    I have had some large moths flying around in my house lately. Not sure if they just fly in at night, or are hatching somewhere, but they definitely keep the cats busy. I keep waking up in the middle of the night by one or two cats that are busy chasing one... iPoes has already eaten at least 4 of the large bugs, with a lot of crunching... 🤢 So yesterday I found another moth and decided to put it outside to safe it from the chompers of iPoes. Caught it with a big glass and then let it out into the garden. Only for the moth to fly into the chicken run... and be snatched up and eaten by a chicken... 😒 Some days you can’t win.

    Clotted Cream

    Exciting! Can’t buy it here either, but Dutch recipes for clotted cream just mix 4 parts mascarpone with 5 parts crème fraîche.

    Thanks! The butterfly was actually sitting there for a bit, but mostly with his wings closed. Took me some awkward balancing in some brush to get this picture.

    Rescues refusing to home to Omlet hutches

    She wants to rehome Guinea pigs or rabits, not ex bats. It’s still not a common housing in rabbit and guinea pig land.

    Rescues refusing to home to Omlet hutches

    I’m currently volunteering at a bunny and rodent rescue (in the Netherlands, so no use to you), and they too request photos of hutches and runs too. Mostly because there are a lot of unfit houses being sold. They actually recommend wooden chicken coops for bunnies, instead of bunny houses. I would just go by and have a chat and see what they think/say. If they say no, just ask them for other addresses which would be willing to adopt out. Otherwise smaller rescues might be worth having a look at.
