Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Boiled potato peelings don't smell very good! The hens I have at the moment are a Rhode Island/Light Sussex cross, they are still the lovely rich brown colour but with a touch of black on their tail and neck feathers.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I mix it with a chopped straw product which slows down the eating time. Sparky can't chew hay anymore so I try to make sure his feed lasts as long as possible.

Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I'm working my way through Chris Aspin's "The Water Spinners" at the moment looking for clues as to what might have happened to Earby corn mill when it turned to cotton spinning then disappeared without trace. A weighty tome but packed with information! The library managed to find a copy for me but ...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I used to help feed the hens on a farm near Summerbridge where we kept our caravan in the late fifties, that smell of wet mash was wonderful! The hen food we use now is all pelleted for convenience. I am using a mash for the ponies which is largely linseed husks and sugar beet, mixed with hot water ...

Re: ENERGY MATTERS

We changed our 10 year old diesel Skoda Fabia Estate for a 3 year old one earlier this year... zero road tax and well over 50mpg. Have to admit that I drive the Ssangyong 4wd which has considerably lower fuel consumption!

Ah, when I googled BBC Sounds and went directly to it there was no problem but through the BBC website, clicking on the Sounds tab, there was.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Arnold Laver who started the Bradford based timber firm my dad worked for bought a farm in the Midlands, I forget where. It must have been the thing for Yorkshire millionaires to do! They produced turkeys, and everyone who worked for the company received one as a Christmas bonus!

Mum had one but she hated wearing it round her neck and kept it on the wheeled walking aid she used around the house. Completely useless if she had fallen and couldn't reach it!
