Totally agree mate. A couple of hens at the allotments is not the problem regards bird flu!!! They just want to make it as hard as possible for the normal bloke.

Similar to not being able to feed pigs kitchen scraps. That was the norm for years, the "cottagers pig" and there were no issues. Because some bell end down south was importing wagon loads of food waste from France and caused foot and mouth they carte blanch apply a new law. Then people with little knowledge jump on the band wagon when you feed them carved pumpkins "if they have been in a kitchen and carved with a knife they are deemed kitchen waste".....f**k off! That isn't guna start foot and mouth!!!

If its for your own consumption best off just cracking on and keeping quiet.

was told that you could feed kitchen scraps to a pig BUT, all the meat has to be for your own personal consumption, can`t even give a pork chop to a guest.

Seems to be a big up take for threads on off grid living or self sustainability so thought I would stick it in here lads because the 'living of land and game cooking' section doesn't get much traffic

You can't feed them kitchen scraps regardless of who is consuming it pal.

Finished the bee keeping course last night. Very interesting subject. I won't be pursuing it right now but think I will in the future. I thought it was stick some bees in a box and later in the year get some honey. It's a lot more intensive than that and I have enough plates spinning at the minute. Glad I did the course instead of reading up a bit and getting some hives!

Nice one, and yeah they take up so much time, especially spring to early summer wile in swarm season. And one hive can very quickly turn into into 8. Currently have 4 hives coming out of winter, and showing signs of good activity.

For those that were interested in the hatching egg sales I have now sold 7 sets of 6 eggs with an average sale price of £21. It costs around £7.50 for postage and packaging. So basically average of £13.50 for 6 eggs.

As eating eggs local they would be selling for £1.50
