Omlet Newsletter October 23rd 2009

Hello!

The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in and Halloween is almost here once again. But while you’re dressing up, apple bobbing and trick or treating don’t forget your hens might not be enjoying the dark as much as you and you should put them to bed earlier.

We are still offering free delivery on the Eglu Go until the witching hour on the 31st as our Halloween treat to you!

Omlet Calendar

A few weeks ago we let you in on a little secret that we were designing our first ever Omlet calendar and we offered you the chance to get involved. You had the once in a lifetime opportunity to star as a face of Omlet and a whole bunch of you were keen to get your mug on one of the months. Unfortunately we only had 12 spots available though, so thanks to all who entered, and sorry to those that weren’t selected…but there’s always next year!

The eggciting news is that the calendar is now complete, looking terrific and available to pre-order in the online shop. It makes an eggcellent choice of calendar for 2010, even if we do say so ourselves. With cool graphics, funny photos and clever tips it is a handy item to have in the kitchen and it looks cracking too! Each month features one of you, with top tips for chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks and bees. The quirky cartoons feature the whole gang of Omlet characters doing everything from throwing snowballs to toasting carrots on a camp fire – surely enough to make you smile, even on a Monday morning. And we couldn’t make a calendar without all the important dates to remember, as well as a few more unusual ones…

Make this your one calendar for 2010 and you’ll bee prepared for the year… so no more forgetting the date of Take your Chicken to Work Day!

Spooky Competition

It’s that time again when we are priviliged to launch one of our favourite competitions of the year – Omlet’s Pumpkin Carving Competition! This is one of our most challenging competitions and it’s a chance for all of you to show off your style, flare and imagination. Every year you amaze us with your skill and make us laugh with your weird and wonderful ideas, and we eggspect nothing less this year. So get your thinking caps on, plan your design and get trialling – you’ve got until Wednesday 4th to enter.

Anything goes when it comes to your carving…frightening faces, ghostly ghouls and spooky spiders. Or how about a portrait of your pet? Whatever your design and however good or bad please send a photo to stephanie@omlet.co.uk. The best will win a spooktacular prizeand we might even award something to the worst too!

Beehaus Bags Award

Forget the Oscars and the Brit Awards, Omlet has just received a very special award that you may not have heard of – The Horners Award. This prestigious award is given for the most innovative and imaginative use of plastic in the UK every year, and this time the Beehaus was chosen as the winner.

James, Johannes, Simon and William attended the annual banquet at the Mayor of London’s Mansion House looking spruced and dapper. However, it was the Beehaus, not the bow ties, that stole the show.

The award now sits safely in Omlet HQ, alongside the 2004 award for the Eglu…Did we mention we are the first company to win this award twice!?


The fab four celebrate winning the Horner’s Award with their parents.

The National Honey Show
Now from one award to another as the Beehaus will be entered into another competition this weekend. We have been invited to the 78th National Honey Show at St George’s College, Surrey, to display the Beehaus. This is a prestigious event in the world of beekeeping and these guys really know their honey! We are entering a couple of our own jars into one class and the Beehaus will be entered into another class for product innovation. There are also workshops in everything bee related from candle making to painting with wax to making mead.

Members of the public are welcome to come along and bee inspired so why not visit the website for more info.

Cube in the Country

Despite our latest products, the good old Eglu Cube has made its appearance in another magazine recently. The Cube in green features in the October issue of Country Living, as one of the ‘Inspiring buys to brighten your home and garden’.

It certainly is a great product to brighten up your garden during the winter months and chickens are very comfy and cosy in the cube during the cold weather. So if you’ve always thought about keeping chickens why wait until Spring? Now is the perfect time to start – they’ll cheer up your winter a treat!

Ask Antie Barbara

Barbara is our agony aunt for chickens and she can answer all of your chickeny questions. Every month we will be featuring a commonly asked question and answer, but if you have something you’d like to ask just email barbara@omlet.co.uk.

Dear Barbara,

My hens are losing feathers all over the place at the moment. Is this something I should be concerned about? Do they need to see a vet?

At this time of year, hens usually go through a moult to replace worn or damaged feathers. In their first year, the head and neck feathers are the only ones they lose and it’s often hardly noticeable. The second year can be more drastic though, especially with hybrid hens which can suffer a very heavy moult leaving them looking positively ready plucked and very untidy indeed. Some birds have total body moults where almost all the feathers can fall out over a very short period. I watched one of my hens the other day get up looking quite normal but throughout the morning she was literally dripping feathers. By lunchtime, the poor girl had enormous bald patches all over, leaving very few feathers still in place! It takes around 3-4 weeks for the process to finish and the new feathers to have unfurled completely. Once the moulted feathers have fallen out, if you look closely, you should start to see and feel little quills like porcupine spikes poking through the flesh which gradually grow and open out into lovely new feathers.

When your hens are moulting, make sure you provide a good quality layers meal for them because the moult really takes a lot out of them. They have very low energy and won’t be very active at all so at this time, it’s better not to give too many treats as these don’t really provide enough nutritional value. However, things like wheat and oats are very good as a scatter feed in the afternoons or mixed with some warm water to make a porridge as they release energy more slowly to help keep their bodies warm overnight. Adding Poultry Spice to their layers meal or a Chicken Tonic to their water should help correct any mineral imbalance caused by losing and growing new feathers as they contain lots of minerals and will help the hens over the moulting process. It is also said that adding protein to the diet can also help so things like hard boiled eggs or live mealworms are good, protein rich foods. Egg production often takes a break during the moult as so much energy is put into growing the new feathers but once they are fully feathered again, the eggs should return.

There are other causes for feather loss though so don’t always put it down to the moult. Another cause of feather loss is bullying by another hen. The neck, head, back and vent are the most commonly affected areas for feather pulling and you can get sprays to use on the bullied bird which make her feathers taste unpleasant to the others and this should help deter pecking. If there are any red areas or broken skin, it’s important to remove the injured bird quickly as hens are horribly attracted by the colour red and will peck at wounds until they are in a truly dreadful state. Only re-introduce the injured bird when the wound has healed up completely to prevent her from being attacked again.

Not so common at this time of year but in the warmer months, you may find a broody hen plucking the feathers from her breast and abdomen to line the nest to help protect her eggs, so if your balding hen is also sitting clamped to the nest or making strange noises she is probably broody!

Very occasionally, hens can show an allergic reaction to nesting material so it’s worth changing to something non-allergic such as straw or pet quality wood shavings to see if this leads to any improvement.

Another common cause of baldness is skin parasites. Dirty vent feathers, lots of scratching and dust bathing, hunched or withdrawn hens and soft shelled eggs are often indications that your hen has an infestation. Mites are very difficult to see with the naked eye but they leave the skin looking sore, red and featherless. However, lice can be spotted quite easily and the hot spots where they tend to hide are around the vent, under the wings, round the abdomen and chest and the neck area. Ruffle the feathers against the direction of growth and look for little scuttling creatures or tiny cream eggs stuck to the feather shafts. If you come across any, there are lots of powders and sprays available which will remove these effectively but remember to repeat the treatment a week after the initial one to catch any eggs which might have hatched in the meantime and treat all nesting material and dust baths too.

There are some super topics on the identification of skin parasites on our forum:

Live meal worms are a special treat for your chickens. They are the larvae of the Flour Beetle, a native British insect which eats flour, meal, grain and other related crops. Their athletic and streamlined appearance is misleading – they are made up of over 48% protein and 40% fat making them not only tasty to eat but also very bad at escaping a hungry chicken.

Your mealworms are delivered in a bed of bran and can be kept in a cool space for a couple of weeks, they are odourless. If you want to store them for longer you can transfer them to the warmest part of your fridge, away from the icebox, (if you put them in a clean pot of your partners favourite yoghurt this is also quite a good practical joke.)

Silicone Chocolate Bug Moulds

Kids aren’t always keen when it comes to cooking, but this item will make the kitchen seem much more exciting to little chefs. After all every child loves chocolate…and chocolate in the shape of bugs tastes even better. This silicone mould can be used to make solid chocolate bees, frogs and butterflies. Just fill the mould with melted chocolate, allow it to cool and then pop it in the fridge to cool completely. The mould is flexible so the chocolates are easy to pop out when they’re ready.

It can also be used to make ice bugs. Simply fill the mould with water and place in the freezer – just like you would to make ice cubes. Great for floating in drinks, especially in your cauldron of witches brew.

Bouncy Bantam Eggs – Pack of 4

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No…it’s a brilliant bouncy egg (obviously). Perfect for the chicken lover who has everything, this pack of four rubber bantam eggs can be used for throwing, juggling and ‘cracking’ practical jokes. They are also useful for encouraging your chickens to lay their eggs in a particular place. The eggs come packaged in an omlet egg box – be careful not to mix them up with the real things as they don’t take too kindly to being boiled!

Buy now for £3.50

Set of Four Animal Masks

Kids find it great fun running around pretending to be animals, and this set of masks will really help to get them into character. Be warned though, if you are used to chickens roaming around the garden, you may not notice that the masked creature flapping it’s arms and bellowing ‘bok bok bok’ is in fact your child. Set includes chicken, pig, cow and mouse. And please note, as fun as these are, they are meant for children. Perfect for halloween!

Omlet Newsletter October 10th 2009

Hello!

We have been busy bees at Omlet HQ this year… having only just launched the Beehaus we have a brand new product to share with you. It’s called the Eglu Go – and it’s the brand new eglu with loads of cool features.

Beehaus in Jerusalem

It’s not only Britain that’s buzzing about the Beehaus! As well as a recent articles in the New York and the LA Times we have appeared in a very surprising newspaper – the Jerusalem Post. It seems that even they are fascinated by our latest venture.

Charlie, a happy eglu and cube owner, found the article while on holiday in Jerusalem recently and sent it to us. We wonder if we should be setting up beesness there too!?

If you spot us in the news anywhere unusual let us know – it’s always a nice surprise!


Did Jesus keep bees?

You’ve got until the witching hour on Sunday to enter so why not give it a go.

Chicken Mentors

Keeping chickens is becoming more popular in schools over the country. It has lots of benefits for kids, and we don’t just mean getting an egg to take home. Graeme Slate, a learning mentor, recently got in touch to tell us about the Eglu Cube at Forster Park Primary School in Lewisham.

Teachers in his area were given the challenge of coming up with an interesting way to teach maths and Graeme came up the the unusual idea of an Eglu project. Their red Eglu Cube is being built by mentees…but how do chickens relate to maths eggsactly? In lots of ways apparantly : understanding invoices and delivery notes, checking parts and prices, understanding basic numbers and matching of parts, comparing prices of chickens feed and selling the eggs. Complicated stuff!

The school’s Eco Council will monitor the health and happiness of the chickens as part of their membership to Lewisham’s Clean & Green schools programme. A local farm will soon be involved too, setting up an incubator to hatch some chicks. Although Forster Park Primary School haven’t got any chickens yet the children are very eggcited about the arrival or their new pets.


Long gone are the days of times tables – the only thing these kids will be counting is their chickens


The careers advisor won’t have much trouble finding a suitable career for these two chicken keepers!

Cooking corner

When I was a boy, September always felt cold, the sign that it was time to go back to school for another year. The leaves were turning red and Autumn was well and truly on it’s way. Pumpkins, gourds, beetroot and the odd tin of beans, from the “non gardening’ family, were taken to class to celebrate Harvest festival. How things have changed, the weather for starters. At this time of year the veggie garden is doing so well. The Courgette plants are looking slightly worse for wear, but still producing marrows if left for a day too long. Potatoes have been dug up and stored in old pellet sacks and the runner beans are accompanying every meal!

The wild birds are attacking the spent sunflower heads, preparing for winter and our own hens are dropping feathers everywhere. Some have stopped laying but we are still getting several eggs a day. A pinch of poultry spice added to their pellets helps them get over a moult more quickly. The hedgerows are dripping with free bounty. Elderberries, blackberries, sloes, wild plums, rosehips and crab apples a-plenty. It would be a shame to let nature’s efforts go to waste, so here is a way to preserve the sweet tasting harvest. Don’t be put off by jelly. It really is simple. Once you have cracked it, there will be no stopping you!

Hedgerow Jelly

2 kilos of fruit (blackberries, elderberries, sloes – not too many, damsons, plums) – Prepare the elderberries by stripping the small black fruit from the stalk with a fork

1 Kilo cooking apples or crab apples, chopped up, stalk, seeds and all

The juice and rind of 1 lemon

  1. Place the fruit in a large pan, the biggest you have.
  2. Add enough water to cover and cook on a medium heat until it is dark red and pulpy.
  3. Strain through a jelly bag or muslin cloth, suspended from an upturned chair. Allow the liquid to drip through over night into a large bowl. Place a couple of saucers into the fridge.
  1. The next day, measure the liquid and pour back into the clean pan. For every pint of liquid, add 1 lb of sugar. I use granulated, sugar with added pectin or jam sugar can also be used but costs more.
  2. Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved, taking care to scrape the edges.
  3. Bring to a rolling boil and continue boiling for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Drop a small amount of the jam onto the cold saucer and pop it back in the fridge for a minute or two. When the jelly has reached setting point, a skin should form when you push your finger through it.
  5. There will be bright pink ‘scum’ around the edges of the pan. Skim this off and ladle the jelly into warm jam jars. Screw the lid on and allow to cool overnight. Label and enjoy within 12 months.

Tip – wash your jars in warm soapy water, rinse and allow to dry. Place in a hot oven for 15 minutes to sterilise. Or pop them in the dishwasher on a hot cycle. If using old recycled jars, use new lids. These are available from good cookware shops.


How many jars will buy Tom some hens?

Vegging out

Well Autumn’s here and you would think there would be nothing to do on the veg plot. In fact there’s plenty to keep you busy all through the Autumn season to give you a head start on next year’s crops.

There are a few veggies that actually benefit from being exposed to a winter in the ground. If you want to grow great onions and garlic for next Summer now is the time to get sowing. If big tasty onions are something you’d like to grow you’ll need to buy yourself some onion sets, these are partially grown onions from seed. They are cheap and easy to find. For over winter growing you need a variety that is not heat treated. They are extremely easy to grow and need very little looking after. They are very space occupying though so if you are strapped for room you may want to wait until spring and grow a spring onion variety instead.

To plant your onion sets:

  1. Make a small hole in the earth with your finger about 2 inches deep
  2. Place the onion set in the hole pointed uppermost
  3. Fill the hole with earth until the onion set it mostly covered, leaving just the tip protruding
  4. Repeat with the other sets about 6-8 inches apart
  5. Water well

Garlic being from the onion family is planted in very much the same way but you cover the whole clove with soil. Instead of growing from sets you buy whole garlic bulbs and separate them into cloves and plant these. Try to buy ones for growing as opposed to supermarket bought as the result you will get will be much better.

You can also get a head start on your peas and beans too. From now until early Winter you can plant early varieties of peas such as Feltham First and broad beans such as Aquadulse. Dependant on where you are in the country and how water retaining your soil is depends on whether you start your seed growing indoors or out. Pea and bean seed doesn’t like to be water logged so if your ground is very wet start your seed indoors and transplant when the plant is strong. Either way the sowing method is still the same –

Make a small hole ½ inch deep, place your seed into it, fill with soil and water well.

If you’re not planning to grow anything until next Spring make sure you take care of your soil. Start digging in some well rotted manure or grow a “green manure” such as clover to dig into the ground later. This all helps to replace the nitrogen used up by this years crops. If you have bare earth cover it up with black polythene or old carpet to prevent weeds taking hold and using up all the nutrients in the soil.

So wrap up warm and get in the garden. The more you put in now the less you have to do in Spring.


That’ll do wonders for your breath!

Course host of the week

Clare Taylor

Your name: Clare Taylor

Where and with who do you live? I live in Banbury with my daughter Rosie, my bantams, two cats, two bunnies and a lurcher pup. Rosie helps out on my courses and is chief chicken wrangler.

How long have you been keeping chickens? All my life – my Italian grandfather had a smallholding and kept chooks and bunnies. I fulfilled my dream to have some of my own 5 years ago when I started collecting pure breeds; I had to remind myself of all the details.

What made you decide to keep chickens? I am fascinated by the different breeds (the eggs are a bonus for us) I also wanted Rosie to grow up understanding the lifecycle and how it affects the food on her plate; she’s now my very own eco-warrior.

How many chickens do you have and what are their names? We have 11 at the moment, some of the names are from songs of my youth, others are just family favourite names. We have Sadie, Ruby-chook, Jude, Lily, Lavinia, Dolly, Betty, Dizzy, Bunty, Fleur and Roxanne. I also board holiday hens, so we regularly increase by a few and end up drowning in eggs.

What’s your favourite thing about the eglu? I like the practicality and the styling.

What do you like doing when you’re not hosting hen parties? We’re (still) renovating our Victorian house, so that takes up a lot of time, we both like baking and jam-making too. Rosie has a little business going selling extra eggs and her jams and cookies to friends and enjoys swimming and I do circuit training and walk the hound to keep fit. I also work full time.

Why did you decide to become a hen party host? I became involved at the very start. I am passionate about the subject and love helping out people who are at the start of their hen-keeping careers. We then evolved to the advanced course and a junior version for 5-11 year olds.

When was your first course and how did it go? I can’t remember the date now, but probably about 2 years ago when I first started out and was hosting them at home. It went brilliantly, so well in fact that I now use larger facilities at Cotswold Chickens and have 20 people on each course.

What do your courses include? The beginners course is an introduction to the Eglu and chicken keeping. Advanced is for people who have had their chooks for a few months and need more knowledge about ailments and chicken physiology. All the courses include lots of hen handling, tea and homemade cakes and a bulging goodie bag including my own notes.

Have there been any course disasters? Only thick snow and escaping hens! I nearly didn’t get to the course I ran in Yorkshire as we were under 6″ of snow at the time.

What’s the best thing about being a hen party host? Catching the enthusiasm of those new and potential chicken keepers, then hearing how they progress as they come to the advanced courses.

Why should people attend a course? I think that it’s important to embark on chicken ownership well prepared and informed; these courses are ideal for that.

Example Review:

“What a fantastic course – an eggcellent way to be introduced to chickens and the Eglu. Clare is a fantastic hostess and imparts great common sense and so much knowledge. Although we were already pretty sure we wanted to start keeping chickens this beginners course enthused us so much we put the order in with Omlet the same night! Thanks Clare – see you on the advanced course in a few weeks time.” By Mike and Jess.
