Omlet Newsletter November 27th 2005

Hello,

The Bake me Happy competition is in full swing with lots of people rising to the challenge.  Chickens have been doing their bit by popping eggs out at an eye watering rate, whilst kitchens have been whirring to the sound of whisks and Sainsbury’s has reported shortages of icing sugar.   Not since Delia Smith first showed the nation how to boil an egg has there been such culinary excitement.

The Omlet mailbag has been full of photographs of beautiful looking cakes accompanied by tantalising descriptions.  One lovely lady also sent in a carefully wrapped piece of cake, which arrived in perfect condition and definitely impressed the judges.  So, if you want to make the judge’s job easier don’t hesitate to pop a piece in the post.  And don’t forget that there’s a fabulous Omlet Apron up for grabs and the prestigious title of Baroness Bake!

Later in the newsletter, Barbara has some good advice on how to keep your garden looking neat and tidy over winter.  The forum members have been busy discussing who has the friendliest chickens and the eglu owner of the week is an absolute corker.

Can you help?  We are reviewing our list of breeders so if you have any feedback – good or bad on the places you have visited to buy chickens from or you have discovered new ones then please let us know.  You can do this by emailing penny@omlet.co.uk please also include the name and telephone number of the breeder as well as an address if you have it.

And finally, the Omlet Christmas cards have been flying of the shelves, which is great because for every pack sold the Battery Hen Welfare Trust gets 50p to help them in their excellent work of rehoming hens so that they can live out their days as free ranging pets.  So if you haven’t yet sent your cards why not stock up on some of these.

Enjoy the newsletter and good luck in the competition!

Some cakes are so good you just can’t resist giving them a little kiss!

Barbara’s Weekly Diary!

How to keep chickens and keep your garden too…

One of my most frequently asked questions is what damage will the chickens do to the garden? Well, if you’re prepared for them, not that much! The hens may peck or scratch at plants so it’s a good idea to separate anything delicate off to prevent damage. This can be done really easily using fruit cage netting and bamboo poles or even better, the chicken netting we sell in the Omlet shop which is tough, comes in two lengths and is so easy to put up and take down again without getting into a terrible tangle. It’s very easy to section off vegetable gardens or bedding plants and the advantage of the chicken netting is that it doesn’t have to be a permanent feature which leaves you free to enjoy your garden when the hens are in their run.

Hens can’t be toilet trained but the droppings can be scraped up very easily and popped onto the compost heap where they will make the most wonderful compost. In summer, droppings on the lawn dry out quickly and can be raked in where they will act as a fertiliser and make your grass grow lush and green. Chickens actually carry less health risks than cats and dogs and as long as they are wormed twice a year, it is perfectly safe for children to be around them, so long as a sensible handwashing regime is followed.

During winter it is a good idea to keep them off the lawn where possible because the grass becomes dormant and any damage will not recover until Spring which can result in unsightly bald patches. This is a good time to build a permanent bark run which is incredibly easy to maintain and the chickens won’t suffer from being kept off the garden if they are given daily treats of raw green vegetables. There is a guide showing how to build one on the Omlet website. The bark can be raked out once a month and changed for fresh and the hens will be perfectly happy scratching around in it and will even find areas which they can use to dustbathe within it!

Paddle stones on top of plant pots will prevent little feet from uprooting the contents and leave the pots looking stylish. The hens love it when you move the pots about the garden because you can guarantee that there will be something tasty lurking underneath for them to gobble up! Watching your hens free ranging is one of the most pleasurable pastimes and with a little foresight, you can relax and enjoy them without worrying about your garden.

Friendly Chickens

“If we do decide to get a couple of chickens, which do you think are the friendliest? I’m determined to have the kind of girls who I can make a fuss of and who will be real pets, as well as a talking point for the neighbours! We were originally thinking of one of each of the Omlet chooks, but reading the messages here, I’m not so sure any more. The world seems full of amazing chickens! Any recommendations?” – HennyPenny

Both our Bluebelle and Starlight are very friendly, and always come running to meet you when you go outside. They are both happy being handled (even when it is by a 6 year old!), and are both good at laying double yolkers! We also have a White Star and an Amber Star who are both friendly enough, but not as tame as the other 2. – Chookiehen

Well the Gingernut and Pepperpot are lovely!! – Buffie

Goes without saying! Our two Amberstars are lovely, but more nervous than the Black stars. Now just have to find more chooks who are not only friendly but lay coloured eggs (don’t want much do I) – Mel and Paul

My Gingernut Clarry is the most wonderful hen. We love her to bits! – Kate

Both our Omlet hens – a Pepperpot and a Bluebell are very friendly. The Speckledy doesn’t like being picked up – the Sussex star is friendly and cuddly – the Cream Legbar is OK if you can catch her and the Whitestar is fine if you can ever catch her – she will do anything for food though so is quite amenable! – Lesley

My Gingernut is the friendliest chook she will always let you pick her up, the Pepperpot allows you a cuddle when she feels like it and there is just no catching the Cream Legbar……….. – Nicola

Well I used to say AMBERSTAR … but now ….. Ebony, the Starlight is contending for the friendliest chook award in our garden. Ginger is good …. but I would say the Amberstar and Starlights in my experience are the most amenable. Also, remember the chook will be more friendly, the more she is handled, so as I have been pretty hands on with Ebony, as she is new, maybe she is just a tad friendlier at the moment. Mrs Snowy is good too … and does not resist a cuddle. – SarahJo

My girls are both Omlet Gingernut Rangers. They are fab. They come running to you like a dog, sit with you like a cat and follow you round the garden like a friend, chatting away to me. I say Gingernuts are the best. – Clare*

Yes, I’d have to go with the Gingernut Ranger too. We love our Louise to bits (but don’t tell Thelma I said that, as I love her too) as she is a real character and is never far away from me wherever I am in the garden to give me a helping hand or just to sit and chat. She’ll quite happily sit on my arm or shoulder, and very often leave little presents behind. She’s very thoughtful like that – Gina

When comparing all the hybrid breeds, I think the most important thing to determine how tame and friendly they are is their training. If you train them like dogs using treats and give them lots of handling then they will be really tame. Even my Pollo, who is a shy hen in personality, was easily trained to go up the ramp onto the platform to be given her antibiotics twice a day. – Motherhen

My bantam babes are great; they come running up swanking when I open the back door. Layla and Sadie like cuddles, and Sadie (the little hussy) will ‘stand’ for you with her tail in the air if you tread her back like a cock! Ruby is more wary – probably due to visits to the vet when we first got her. I love my bantams and wouldn’t swap them for anything! – Clare Taylor

I love my two Omlet girls to bits…had them 6 weeks now and I think they were pretty young (still no eggs, they are quite small birds and the Pepperpot’s comb is still tiny). They are both really tame – come tearing up to me like little puppies whenever I call them. The Pepperpot is the tamest – she climbs on my lap whenever I sit down. This morning she started drinking the cup of tea I was holding! They really have got personalities of their own.  Tell us what you choose when you do! – Deborah

Barbara’s Weekly Diary!

Chilly Chickens?
You can keep chickens outside all year round in this country. They are remarkably hardy creatures and don’t forget, they are wearing a big feathery coat. You can bet your boots too that although the eglu is also very well insulated, if you peep in through the eggport at night when they’ve gone to roost, they will all be cuddled up together at the back and that must be very warm indeed!

The first time your hens see snow they can be somewhat hesitant to step onto it, often causing a hilarious scene as the hen at the front of the morning rush puts the brakes on and the others pile into her behind!  Once they have ventured out they will carry on as usual, pottering around feeding and drinking.

Some people like to give their hens a warming feed in the mornings. Porridge is popular as are cooked and mashed up potato peelings mixed with their pellets or mash. Mine love some wholemeal bread served with warm milk or water and a drizzle of honey on top. Wheat is a good scratch feed to give on winter afternoons as it releases energy slowly which will keep them warm overnight. It is far more effective for keeping the hens bodies warm than corn which tends to put weight on!

You might also need to keep an eye on their water in case it freezes overnight. It’s a good idea to bring the feeders inside overnight when temperatures dip because it makes filling them up in the morning so much easier.

The only other thing to look out for is that hens combs can get frostbitten in cold weather but you can prevent this from happening simply by rubbing some Vaseline into the comb. It’s a painful condition and causes the comb to go black where it has been frozen and this bit will eventually die off so a little preventative care can save your hen some discomfort. They do seem to like having their combs rubbed too so it’s an excellent excuse for a cuddle and a bit of bonding!!

Nervous Chickens

Poor Baggins posted on the forum that we got our delightful Pepper (Pepperpot – approx 20 weeks old) and Rust (Gingernut – approx 18 weeks old) 3 weeks ago. Although we (and our dog) love them dearly, they are so unfriendly. We handle them (by picking them out of their “bedroom”) every morning, and talk to them regularly but they are not becoming any easier to “tame”. I appreciate that they’ll never be cuddly but would at least like them to not be quite so afraid and “skittish”. Any ideas – should we handle them more, is it too late and will they always be like this? The other thing is that they won’t eat anything other than their chicken food – we have tried all kinds of fruit and vegetable scraps and they look at us as though we’re mad!  Please help – I’d love for them not to treat us as though we’re diseased!

As usual, forum members rushed to the rescue and posted advice:

Don’t worry! Perseverance is the name of the game! Mine wouldn’t touch treats to start off with. They turned their beaks up at EVERYTHING – even sweetcorn and grapes! BUT, they soon realised that these things tasted nice – delicious even – and from that moment, they were putty in our hands! Mine go absolutely nuts for dried mealworms at the moment and come running for them! Just keep on trying them with things and they’ll get friendlier and friendlier when they realise that you are the bearer of all things scrummy! – Kate

I totally agree with Kate. You just need to keep doing what you’re already doing. Our two were very timid for at least three or four weeks, probably more, and it’s only recently (within the last couple of weeks in fact), that they’ve started running up to us when we go out in the garden. Ours love tined sweetcorn and cooked spaghetti – in fact they go absolutely made for the spaghetti (it’s very funny to watch). Once they are settled, they’ll come to love you as much as you love them. – Andrew (atsw)

Try only introducing a couple of types of treat to start with – sweetcorn is an easy one to start with – and only give them in the afternoon. It’s good that they’re eating all their pellets ‘cos it means they’re getting all the goodness they need. Be patient – they will need a little time to settle in and every hen is different so don’t be concerned if other people’s experiences are different to yours. – Red

Before you know it they won’t eat anything but treats!!!! – Rachel 19

Hello Baggins – I have only just picked up my chickens for the first time TODAY! It took them that long to get used to me. In the end it was easy. They just dangled there happily, though their little legs were going like the baddie’s legs in thin air just before he plummets into the canyon. They aren’t too keen on treats either but they’ll take a grape if I cut it up nicely for them. – Penny

They are probably still a bit unsettled – new home, fireworks etc. Plus they are still juveniles – they settle down a lot when they start laying. – Clare Taylor

Ours took a while to tame down, but our black rock who is over 1/2 a year is still getting friendlier. Plus ours didn’t like scraps until they discovered the compost heap one day… – noeglu

We found ours were more docile in the evenings for cuddles. They are still a bit stand-offish at times but are happy to potter around the garden with us. Treats- fruit and healthy stuff got a definite thumbs down (or the chicken equivalent), but mashed potato, rice and particularly spaghetti are gone before they hit the ground! They seem to love their carbs! – Nick & Trish

See Baggins – they’ll soon come to love you (or your sweetcorn) Like Kate says, patience is a virtue (but really difficult to practice when you are waiting for your first egg!!) – Mel & Paul

It’s been two weeks and mine are still quite timid. At lunch time today, I spent half an hour sat at the end of the run with sweetcorn in my hand. The Bovans Nera pecked at it first, followed by the Ranger and then, eventually, after a full 30 minutes, the Whitestar. They are interested in sweetcorn but aren’t really mad for it. The one thing they really love is a handful of dried, mixed, corn. – Graham (grd)

My Pepperpot and Speckledy are still not really happy about being handled and run at the first inkling that I may try to pick them up. The new Gingernut that came on Saturday is completely different. She’s happy to by picked up and cuddles and runs to me if she wants picking up. My Speckledy is having real problems accepting Innara. Diana seems quite bullish and runs towards Innara, who promptly runs into my arms – ahhh!! Still persevering but to avail. – Fleata

Doormat – Beware of the chickens
Archeologists in Greece recently uncovered what appeared to be the remains of a chicken with big teeth. This is probably the first know example of a now extinct breed of unusually fierce guard chickens that wealthy Grecians used to protect their most valuable possesions. You can now get the same effect without upgrading your Gingernut Ranger simply by laying this fearsome BEWARE OF THE CHICKENS coir mat at your front door.

Omlet Newsletter 3rd November 2005

Hello,

We start this weeks Newsletter with the results of the Pumpkin carving competition -and what a competition it has been!  Judging was ridiculously difficult with discussions running late into the night.  However, on the stroke of midnight a conclusion was reached and we are delighted to announce the prize of Princess Pumpkin goes to Deborah Maclean.  There is also a joint second prize for Dave Spencer’s scary witch and cauldron and Sian Thomas who managed to make a bunny look spooky, impressive stuff.   Everyone who entered but didn’t win will be receiving a pack of Omlet Christmas cards because looking through all the brilliant entries we had it’s fair to say, pumpkin carving was the real winner!

Pumpkin Competition
2005 Winners

1st Prize – Deborah Harris

Pumpkin Competition Runners Up

You can see more runners up on our gallery here

Of course it’s bonfire night this weekend which means sparklers, catherine wheels and maybe even a toffee apple or two.  Pets don’t tend to look forward to the big night quite so much though.  All those explosions can be unsettling so it’s a good idea to bring your pet into the quietest part of the house well before the festivities start.  Keep them in a dark, well ventilated box with water for the evening and they should be fine.

And finally, you may have been surprised to find the days seem to have suddenly shrunk to about half their normal size.    This is nothing to worry about and all will return to normal in March 2006.  Until then don’t forget your chickens will need locking up earlier than usual and after which why not snuggle up in front of a fire drinking hot chocolate.

We hope you enjoy the newsletter and Mystic Peg predicts you will read right to the bottom,

Barbara’s Weekly Diary!

Storing Eggs
You may find that eggs collected in the morning are all used up by the evening!  But occasionally some build up and the question arises of where to store them.  I’ve read so many different instructions about how to store your eggs that it can get rather confusing. As soon as your hen presents you with a fresh egg the contents start to slowly deteriorate. It doesn’t matter what you do – you just can’t stop this happening. This is because the egg is warm when it is laid and the contents begin to contract as it cools down causing an air space to form between the outer and inner shell.

As the egg gets older, moisture and carbon dioxide are drawn out of the egg and are replaced with air. You can tell a freshly laid egg because the albumen or white is cloudy and slightly jelly-like. As the egg gets older more carbon dioxide is lost through the shell and this causes the white to become more watery and transparent. When the egg is broken, the yolk in a very fresh egg is fat and appears well raised up from the white. In an older egg, the yolk is enlarged and has a flattened appearance. It’s better not to use eggs which are cracked or have damaged shells as bacteria may have got inside.

So is a fridge the best place to store eggs?  Well, they’ll be fine in a box in the fridge but using the egg holder in the door may not be so good as they will be exposed to condensation caused by large temperature changes every time the door is opened.

The Food Standards Agency suggests that the best place to store eggs is somewhere cool and dry.  So, a larder or store cupboard is fine and even a windowsill works at this time of year when the eggs won’t be bombarded with sunlight. 

Here is a lovely savoury recipe that I make at home all the time, it uses up lots of eggs!

Egg and Bacon Pie

8oz shortcrust pastry
4 rashers smoked or unsmoked bacon
6-8 eggs
seasoning

Roll out the pastry and line the base and sides of an 8” round sandwich cake tin with ? of it, reserving the rest to use as a lid. Chop the bacon finely and fry gently until cooked. Break the eggs into the pastry case – you can use as many as you like. Sprinkle over the cooked bacon and seasoning. Roll out the remaining pastry to make a lid and use to cover the eggs and bacon. Seal the edges and cook in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes at 200°C or GM5 until the pastry is golden and the filling is set.

What’s on the forum?

“Fox – 0, Eglu – 1″

An incredibly relieved HennyPenny posted

“Got up to let the girls into their run this morning and was surprised to see that the rug we put over the Eglu (to keep them warm at night – ahh!) seemed to have slipped to one side…….then realised that it was covered in muddy pawprints and a fox had obviously been digging at the ground near the Eglu – knocked down some of the log roll and scraped away some bark chippings where the Eglu and run meet. BUT Rita and Mavis were perfectly safe and happy inside their Eglu – thank goodness!

Mr H-P has repaired the damage and gone for the traditional fox-repellent around the garden so we’re hoping for a quiet night. Well done Eglu designers!”

“It’s quite a shock when you realise you’ve had visitors, isn’t it!! The first morning after mine had been delivered, I went out to find that a fox had quite literally tried to dig a trench round the Eglu in an endeavour to get in, it must of scared the hens half to death. However, it’s very reassuring to know it didn’t work, and since then, he’s not seemed to try again! Hope it all goes well!” – Liz Steed

“Good job it’s an excellent design HP” – Lesley

“Glad your girls are safe HennyPenny, what a relief!” – Leanne

“Glad the chooks are OK HennyPenny, best to keep them in the run were they are nice and safe and don’t forget to put the pin in the run door……….” – Nicola

“Phew! Another close shave thwarted by the Eglu!! Good on you Omlet guys!! Thanks for keeping our feathery friends so safe!” – Kate

“Hi, I had the same thing yesterday Mr Fox had obviously been on the top of the Eglu and slipped off as there were foot prints and skid marks all over. Fortunately for my lovely girls not so good for my neighbour 3 doors up, as he also had a visit and lost all 8 of his hens I feel really bad for him. But so relieved I decided on the Eglu.” – guest

“Gosh, wily Mr fox really is cunning isn’t he? I’ve not seen our fox again, but I am extra careful now to make sure that the girls are in the run well before dusk.” – Clare Taylor

Chicken Horoscopes by Mystic Peg

Omlet’s very own spiritualist stares deep into the star filled heavens to tell you wattle happen…

Scorpio
Scorpios love a challenge so you will accept the chance to do something that defies the odds. You must be willing to persist if you want to accomplish your ambitions. If progress remains painfully slow, remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. As Venus moves closer to Mars you will feel the extra gravitational pull towards the nest box and all your hard work will be worth it.

To celebrate the launch of Chicken Horoscopes we are offering a fantastic opportunity to have a free consultation with our very own Mystic Peg. Anyone who buys an eglu in November will qualify for their own one to one session who knows what the future may hold!

Have an eggcellent day,
