    Here is the only bee picture I have, and it feels like cheating since the bee wasn't doing much of anything

    Run a controlled test first. While I think they would repel the insects just fine you need to make sure they don't cause respiratory problems. I have to watch it in a craft store near the dried flower section because dried eucalyptus makes my asthma activate. Now I am fine with breathing the vapor form eucalyptus salts and fresh eucalyptus doesn't seem to bother me just the dried.

    Thank you! Adam knows that I'm the boss and just gives me my space. He's still under a year old though so we'll see if he stays nice.

    Good.. Been busy with my first hatch.


    Must have been fun to watch! When I had ducks, they'd come scramblin when I said "here, chook chook chooks!" They knew first ones there got the leftover pancakes, and the rest got the broccoli stems... :lau

    Thanks to you... I now have "duck coop" on my to-do list... :oops:
    Thinkin 'bout calls but I know they are hard to hatch... How are pekins?

    First hatch!! Congrats!!! :jumpy

    Gotta see pics! ;)

    Duck houses are much simpler than chook coops... large doghouses work too, depending on how many and how large...

    Pekins should be easy, never hatched them... only Calls and some Rouen/Mallard crosses...

    Those pictures are all so amazing! I just took some my self (spent like two hours doing it and my fingers are so cold they aren't letting me type properly) but instead of posting them here maybe we should go to another thread, or start a new one?

    But before that I think I'll just have to share a few of my own on here. [​IMG] [​IMG]
