The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

the only time it got water inside was when it downpoured and the wind was blowing it into the open pvc elbows. I've since moved it inside the barn so that doesn't happen any more. I used gorilla glue sealant in a caulking gun to seal but have noticed it needs replaced after about 3 months as the ducks have knocked it loose. Maybe I just need to try regular silicone this time. I love these feeders and have no waste with them.

Exactly. The other two I knew were aspergill (because there's a common fungus that was named Aspergillus because it looks like an aspergill), and paludal (from some readings about malaria). Alas, I cannot otherwise attribute any to a particularly spectacular vocabulary... (all smoke and mirrors!)

@BantyChooks - I know diddly squat about homemade incubators, but it occurs to me - is this the one you cut a hole in the side of for viewing/candling during lockdown? If so, are the seals around that ok?

I had to come in out of the blind to make this reply, since I still can't do it on the 'puter in the blind. I hope you appreciate the sacrifices I'm willing to make for you!  :P I just want to give you a heads-up.

 

I had one of those buildings like your dad gave you. I called mine the "paper building". They're not cheap, money-wise, when you factor in how long they last. Yes, they are thicker than a regular tarp, and UV doesn't deteriorate them as quickly, although mine didn't last long enough for UV to be a problem.

 

The big problem with them is wind.They'd probably work out o.k. in a location that's protected from strong winds, like next to a shed or a block building, on the lee side. Mine, however, was out in the open, away from any protecting solid structures, and the wind literally shredded it in a relatively short time.

I had one I used as an impromptu work area when building one of my coops. It was great until we had a storm. it was shredded, metal poles bent and twisted - I was glad no-one got hurt... (It gets windy here...)

Gets an excellent substitute for eggs:

1 Tbsp ground flax
3 Tbsp water

Mix together and stick in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Then you can just add it like your eggs. This recipe replaces 1 large egg so mix up as many as you need smile.png

 

Neat  to know - thanks!!!

Date: Tue 6 Dec 2016

France widened "high risk" restrictions to the entire country after the detection of several cases of the highly pathogenic H5N8 avian flu strain in farms in southwest France and in wild ducks in northern France, the farm ministry said [Tue 6 Dec 2016].

The decision was also motivated by the "rapid change in the ...
situation in France and in several European countries", the statement said.

The outbreak was detected [Thu 1 Dec 2016] on a duck farm in the southwestern Tarn region, the heart of the lucrative, though controversial, foie-gras industry.

It came just as a ban on exports outside Europe was about to be lifted in time for the crucial holiday period. Exports outside the European Union had been suspended after an outbreak a year ago, and producers were waiting for the green light -- which had been set for [Sat 10 Dec 2016] -- to resume shipments just in time for the Christmas holidays, when the delicacy is especially popular. Producers must now wait another 3 months for exports to resume, as long as no further cases are discovered.

The ministry, which said migratory birds were the likely source of the outbreak, announced later on [Tue 6 Dec 2016] a number of confirmed or suspected cases of bird flu in the southwestern regions of Gers, Hautes-Pyrenees and Lot-et-Garonne -- where ducks from the supplier of the Tarn farm had been transported -- leading to around 7000 further birds being culled. A further 4500 had died from illness.

A protection zone has been declared within a 3 km [approx. 1.86 mi] radius of the Tarn farm, as well as a 10 km [6.2 mi] surveillance zone.

French poultry farmers have been told to keep their flocks indoors or apply safety nets preventing contact with wild birds. Those who may not use confinement or safety nets because of animal welfare or quality requirements can ask to be exempted if they can prove sufficient biosecurity measures.

The H5N8 variant of bird flu, which also hit duck farmers in the Netherlands last month [Nov 2016], is highly infectious for poultry but poses little danger to humans.

The H5N1 strain, however, has killed more than 420 people, mainly in south-east Asia, since first appearing in 2003.

[HPAI has already been reported from 14 European countries (Hungary, Poland, Croatia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Finland, Romania, France, Serbia and possibly Ukraine). It also continues its spread in the Middle East (this week new outbreaks in Israel, circulating also in Egypt, Iran and possibly
Tunisia) and in southern Asia (India).

The HPAI H5N8 circulating viruses belong to the genetic clade 2.3.4.4 and share recent ancestry with Goose/Guangdong/96 lineage H5N8 HPAI viruses isolated in early June 2016 from wild birds in Tyva (Russia).
In the past, the detection of this AI lineage in wild birds in southern Russia represented a signal for an upcoming incursion into South Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. According to WHO, based on the limited information obtained to date, human infection with this strain cannot be excluded, although the likelihood is low.

It is expected that HPAI H5N8 will continue to spread during the winter months within and beyond the affected countries. - Mod.AS
