Re: Eco dating

An interesting read. I think you'll find that most ish people, male and female, find it hard to meet likeminded souls. Maybe you should put photos of yourselfs up and use this thread as a start point, there may eventually be a complete section for it if it gets popular enough!!

A chicken question.

I got 10 ex batteries a month ago and have been feeding them on a combination of grit and mash also thrown in some barley aswell. The problem is that since getting the hens their yokes have become pale and the yoke membrane has become weak. Can ayone give me a tip to sort this out. Thanks in advance.

Re: Solar Tubes - options

I can do you a dual coil solar system with a 20 tube panel for less than £2500. Assuming you have easy access to roof and loft spaces. I don't mean to hawk my wares or anything but I run a renewables company, only small, and I hate to see anyone ripped off as I know how much these systems cost and ...
