  1. Some New Layer

    Can't go wrong with the Lohmann brown, seen a lot of commercial flocks do 320 eggs per bird easy up to 72 weeks.
  2. Birmingham Roller Pigeons

    Old MH from Durham often lost all his birds to thieving b******s, yet was still one of the top men in the country when we flew.
  3. Birmingham Roller Pigeons

    Nice looking birds vfr400boy, my old man and I won the AERC Old bird competition back in the early 90's with mainly Bob Brown of Walsall breeding, always have a soft spot for the rollers.
  4. Chickens Sneezing ?

    Could be a form of IB, if you can get hold of some oxytetracycline (OTC) dose them and any other fowl you have knocking around. ATB
  5. Ivermectin

    I've found the best thing for mite and other sundries is diesel, can taint your eggs so be careful when applying near your nest boxes.
  6. Point Of Lay Wanted

    Country fresh pullets are always worth a try they rear loads with full vaccination programs, if they have some left over from a big order you can pick them up at a decent price.
  7. Chicks Shaking Their Heads

    Could be an IB challenge, have you vaccinated? IBQX can effect oviduct development yet the ovaries are functional and look normal, if your birds are layers you can end up with blind layers in birds that look nice and healthy. Hope it's nothing. Mr Tibbs
  8. Red Might !

    Best thing to use is diesel, its got a good residual that can help stop them coming back as it gets in all the cracks and places red mite like to hide better then other products. Can taint the eggs a bit so don't use around your nest boxes. ATB Mr Tibbs
  9. Westmead Documentary

    Cheers breeze, the search continues. ATB Mr Tibbs
  10. Chickens For A First Timer

    I would go with Lohmans over warrens or try and get some Bovan Browns, they lay a slightly smaller egg but commercially they are looking at 300 eggs a bird per flock easy and seem a hardier breed then either lohman or hyline (on free range units). Try and find a local producer who is depleting the flock soon and you can pick them up cheap, moult them out and they are good to go again. Best of luck.

  12. Westmead Documentary

    Did anyone watch the Westmead program on Sky sports the other week? It was mentioned in the film a documentary filmed in the 80's following a litter of pups bred by the savvas from birth till there 1st race, has anyone seen this or know where to watch it online I've had a look but cant find anything. ATB Mr Tibbs
  13. Kennel Gates X2

    Can you post pictures? Would be interested.
  14. Hi, After some years without dogs (had various breeds in the past just as pets) im thinking of getting a lurcher for a bit of fun so been doing some research and it has led me to this website. Hoping to learn as much as I can and hope this points me in the direction of the dog best suited to me. ATB Mr Tibbs
