Re: No alternative

Just go for it. I have had 1 hip and both knees replaced. I am surprised at 3 months. It's all down to doing the physio. I was off crutches by 4 weeks. Ask questions if you want.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Daisy would lay eggs without Donald. I feel sorry for her, she will be bon**d to bits.

Re: Anyone had success with butternut squash?

There are loads of different squashes. I have never tried but my neighbours who have an amazing veg.plot grow them outside by the dozen. I would do a bit of googling.

Re: Marking eggs

You have to be careful as duck shell is very porous. Perhaps a small pencil mark at one end. Small piece of sicky tape on the end.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

They love other food apart from sweetcorn. Mine loved lettuce, defrosted peas, porridge oats. Unless they are small ducks, ie. Mallard size, I doubt if they will fly off.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

I would guess she could start laying once she has moulted.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

If I remember rightly and it is their first moult, it will be around 4-6months. The ducks will lay (drakes don't!!!!!!!), You will have to be careful as 1 duck to 1 drake is seriously tough on the duck. Drakes have no finesse when it comes to b onking and he will ravage the duck, she will go through...

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

When you say might be one of each do you mean duck/drake? Ducks quack and drakes don't. I always noticed that drakes tail feather tends to curl inwards. I love ducks but oh so messy.

Re: Can I compost moss?

Yes, if you put it all as a lump it doesn't compost down. Just spread it out and it will be fine.

Re: Can I compost moss?

Yes but it needs to be spread out amongst the rest of items to be composted.

Re: My attempt to keep chickens.

Purple comb is usually a sign of lack of oxygen, poor circulation, respiratory/breathing difficulties.

Re: Advice for stubborn Lurcher!!!

Have you tried turning round and going back the direction you have come for a number of steps. All jolly and that + plus tasty treats ie : mature cheddar cut into tiny pieces, when you turn back.
That is what I used to do with my Goldie....she was a cheeky monkey for planting her feet.

Re: Just said goodbye

I am so sad to read this. I know what it is like to lose your last pet. I promised myself "no more" and have stuck to that, it has been hard but still do my home boarding for dogs.
