Mine don't like worms either Gwenoaks. I have even tried offering them on my hand but they just ignore them. I am hoping that my new chicken might teach them that worms are good. Wondering if it is because they are ex-batts? My previous two hens used to follow me round the garden in the hope that I ...
Yes Mo I am going to try to introduce them today. I have the new one in a cage so that they can see each other for a couple of days but want to see how they get on out and about together. Just waiting for Spice to lay her egg so that I can then introduce the new hen to the coop and run for a while b...
Thanks for your reply LBH. Mine suddenly started eating their pellets again a few weeks ago. I think it is as the mood takes them. They now have a new friend which is going to be challenging over the next few days.
Thanks for your reply LL. I will stop worrying. I am sure they get lots of goodies foraging all day in the garden. The pellets will be there when they need them.
Hi KathJ. Yes I have tried that and they used to really like that especially with a bit of tuna oil mixed in but now they seem to turn their nose up at everything apart from pasta or scrambled egg! I will just see how they go. I am hoping to get a couple more hens soon so will see how it goes with t...
Don't think it is contamination Mo as I have tried two different lots of pellets. I will go back to using a hopper so there is no waste. Maybe they are just getting enough food free ranging.
It has been a while now that they are not eating their layers pellets. I am just wasting them which I don't want to do. They are free range all day - are they getting enough with that? I do give some kitchen scraps in the afternoon and occasionally some porridge. Only one of the two I have left lays...
Hi Millimagpie. I wasn't able to get Flubenvet but did get some wormer from my local pet store. It was mixed with water and I have not seen any worms since. That reminds me I should do it again just in case.
I am really happy with my ex-batts but have only have only had them two months. Everyone to their own. Have fun with the planning Gwenoakes.
I seem to be getting two eggs a day again - one first thing and the second late afternoon. I am giving them grit and shells. Their combs are nice and red too. Happy, cheeky girls they are. I spend so much time going and checking them, watching them and giving them treats!
I am sorry if my post upsets some people but I am not irresponsible. My cat will be neutered after this litter. My previous cats have had one litter and I have always found responsible homes for the kittens. It took me months to find a kitten when I wanted another one and I already have several home...
