Re: swollen comb on chicken

Re: swollen comb on chicken

When we got our last lot of ex batts there was some squabbling and one of the girls didnt just have her comb pecked...she was grabbed by it and it bled quite a bit. I just cleaned it up well with warm water with a little salt in it....it soon healed up with a black scab and she has had no further pr...

Reading this I realise how lucky I am...there are 5 houses here, we all rent from the old guy in the manor house (as run down as ours) who owns the village, everyone grows their own food and shares, no one dresses up as there is no where to go...I have to walk 3 miles to catch a bus. we live in scru...

Re: What Ishy things are you grateful for this week?

Im very grateful (and very excited) for the orchard we have just been given....the trees all have canker and havent been bothered with for years and we have been told if we remove them and re plant new ones we can use the rest of the land aswell. This also means we will have a huge pile of firewood ...

Re: Complete Dried Cat Food

Id be careful with dried cat food if you have a male cat, my big black Tom took ill and was crying when he was trying to use the litter tray...I thought he was constipated but as the day got on he got worse and we had to rush him to the vets, male cats have a short urethra and dried food causes crys...
