Re: not going into the coop at night

hmmm - I don't know then. Worth checking for red mite in the morning though. I've never had them (hoping I don't jinx myself by saying that!) but I know that they can be a nuisance to get rid of - and some members here have really struggled in the past.

Re: not going into the coop at night

It could well be red mite - I know that often people say that this stops their hens from going into the coop. If you go in in the morning with a white tissue/cloth and wipe it around the ends of the perches, or in any nooks and crannies of the coop, then you might find evidence of them. They feed on...

Thanks Richard - I'll watch as well )t'

Re: LBF's 2013 Diary

I'm in Cornwall :-D The ones in the broken greenhouse (which has a glass roof and walls made of shade netting without any glass) seem to be fairly happy, and the spot I've earmarked for them is sheltered, so I think they'll be ok.

Re: Baked Camembert - in the microwave :-)

ooh - Mrs Boodles - you should definitely try it. Camembert is lovely, smooth, creamy, tasty cheese, and when it's baked, it's kind of fondue-like :-D

Re: LBF's 2013 Diary

Veggie patch is starting to actually look like a veggie patch now. I still have clearing to do, but am getting there, little by little, and managing to keep on top of the weeds in the bits I've cleared, so it's all good. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3786/8816867643_e4dfbb24dd.jpg IMAG0871 by Little...

Re: Barbeque favourites

Last bank holiday, we did big flat mushrooms - we marinaded them in oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and herbs (equalish amounts of the liquid, herbs etc added to taste) - I soaked them for a couple of hours before cooking, just turning them over when I remembered. They were delicious - I think more pe...

Re: Baytril egg withdrawl period

I'm sure that Manda posted something about this a while back - along these lines I think: I read on an American blog that some vets recommend total withdrawal of eggs because it can make some people less susceptible to antibiotics if they ever need them. Some people do withdraw and some people conti...
