Great news for those of you that can't get en-ouef of 'papping' your hens – the Omlet Gallery is back in action! With a brand new design it is better than ever, quicker to use, and easier to browse.
If you've uploaded images in the past, don't despair, your photos are still there and looking splendid. If you haven't used the gallery before, now's your chance to show off your prettiest pets (and your photography skills). And if you prefer to ooo and ahhh at other people's pictures, then go ahead...there are hundreds to look at.
Visit the new gallery page now and have a giggle!
Compostwoman's latest post has been blogged, and the worm-derful news is...she has compost! And not just any compost, may we point out, but the best compost money can't buy. Worm compost is very concentrated, so a little goes a long way, and it is full of fabulous nutrients that your plants will love.
After just four weeks of using the Hungry Bin, Compostwoman happily harvested her first batch of compost. She was impressed at the ease of releasing the tray of compost from the bottom, with nothing falling out of the bin in the process. Only one worm had made an escape, and he or she was quickly reunited with his friends back in the bin. Compostwoman added the compost to some pots of veggies, as well as giving them a dose of tasty worm tea.
The conclusion after week 4: “My Hungry Bin is now absorbing my daily kitchen waste – about a kilo of it every day...I am SO impressed with this wormery!”
What will the world be like in the year 2050? Well, flying cars may be a bit eggstreme, but we think it's fairly likely there'll be an awful lot of Eglus out there.
In The Eco Future exhibition in Abu Dhabi visitors can decide for themselves what the future might hold. Opening later this month, this is set to be a fantastic eggsibition that will entertain, educate and inspire children. Kids are invited to take part in games and interactions, making choices about their future as they enter various zones. Each zone addresses a different subject matter (drinking, eating, enjoying, moving and building), exploring the impact of our current lifestyles on the planet.
But what does this all have to do with Omlet? There is an Eglu on display in the exhibition! Keeping chickens in an Eglu is just one of the examples of how new ideas, technology and behaviour can have a positive effect on our planet.
Can't make it to Abu Dhabi for the exhibition? Our advice – keep calm and keep chickens!
Total Mite Kill Powder is a natural, non toxic mite contol powder that can be applied directly onto all birds and poultry. Made from fossilised diatoms, it breaks down the waxy coating of pests, causing them to dehydrate and die.
Nettex Total Mite Kill Powder should be applied directly to poultry or sprinkled in the housing. Around 30g should be used per square metre, or if applying directly to chickens use around 3g per bird. There is no need to re-apply daily and this product will last up to 6 weeks. Please read the dosage advice on the packaging.
This can also be used on all types of pets, horses and farm livestock and in the home and garden to control insects such as ants, silverfish and termites. It can also be used to control fleas, lice and ticks.
This value pack comes with free 200g shaker pack inside.
