Just a bit of advise please.. I'v been googling about my hen Dora and I think I'v found out what might be bothering her. Only problem is the cure involves bathing her in flowers of solphure which I can only get in powder form. So do I add to warm water like salts ???? Any advise please Thank you in ...

I'v been out looking for pallets again to use to reinforce my back garden as my dog keeps finding his way out.. naughty toby
