Re: rats and chickens

It's entirely possible to use tobacco to make a fast acting, humane rodent killer. Having made it, you'd just need to mix it up in some peanut butter or something and leave it in runs. Be prepared to change what it's mixed into, as if a rat takes something new & dies, the rest of the colony won't to...

Re: rats and chickens

If you can find someone with a ferret, shut the chickens in and get them to run the beastie through the place - the scent of a predator is a very effective rat deterrent, they're not stupid, they won't stay where there's a threat! I bred fancy rats years ago, they're incredibly intelligent critters....

Wrt asthma, as well as a host of other conditions, I've been head down studying the science of nutrition the last few months, and it can make a massive difference. There are currently four ways of eating that seem to produce the very best health and relief from a huge number of medical conditions, ...

Re: Survival medicine

For me, as another arthritis sufferer, I found that keto, which we started back in March, was very effective in lessening pain. I decided to give carnivore a try about six weeks ago, and within the first week, the remains of the pain had just ... gone. I've seen huge benefits in energy levels, gener...

Re: Merino wool sock recommendations please

You could give darning them a try? And I seem to recall reading somewhere that if the area that wears is darned before it wears, it lasts longer!

Re: Whiskey, Wine and Sweets

Home made tablet & Mint Cake? I've been making those lately, as sugar is quite cheap at the moment. Getting them vac packed for long term storage is another matter entirely, it seems the family really really like tablet, I've had to hide a lot of it! I also put up 500g vac packs of sugar. We buy 2kg...

Re: Learning Tradeable Skills

Think day to day life, then think old school. For example, how are your mending skills with boots, shoes & clothing? Can you remove a zip from one garment and place it in another? Can you make socks? These things are simple, and used to be part of every day life, but so many people just haven't a cl...

Re: Preserving Eggs

So, I rehydrated the eggs this afternoon and we tried em. Not bad at all! Took about twenty minutes after mixing in cold water to get to the right consistency to scramble, and they cooked just like fresh. They don't taste exactly the same, but weren't too bad either. I'd be tempted to throw in some ...
