Re: Is there a healthier sugar?

When I was a student we had to give up either dairy, sugar, wheat, gluten, yeast or processed foods for 6 weeks as part of a nutrition module. I gave up sugar. That is to say things that have had sugar added to them ( so naturally occuring fruit sugars in apples, carrots, red peppers etc were ok and...

is leylandii poisonous to chickens?

Does anyone know whether leylandii chippings are poisonous to hens? I'm thinking of putting them down at the muddy end of their run.
Thank you

Re: what would you do with 10ft by 9.5ft'?

What I forgot to mention is that all of the fair sized back garden is put to raised beds (apart from where the hens are) so for the front garden I'm trying to think of something different. I'm thinking of it more in terms of something small and decorative but also somewhat ish. Thanks for the sugges...

what would you do with 10ft by 9.5ft'?

I cleared and stepped the back bank in the back garden to make a nice big area for the chickens which were otherwise going to go in the front garden.

Re: rant sorry :-(

Maybe I can help? I'm not so far away (Newton Abbot) depends where you are near Plymouth I suppose. Anyway if you think that's close enough to be useful then maybe we could work something out. I warn you that I am 8 months pregnant though so wouldn't be as spritely in a play park as I would usually ...

Re: Help tick head stuck in my leg!

I'd be squirting it with Myrrh tincture in a spray bottle and poking it out with a craft knife and then squirting more Myrrh on. Myrrh is my answer to lots of things though...
