  • Thank you everyone,
    Nex my mum is designing furniture to fit, they will be practical & fireproof, But I think you’ll find that the dome will be easy to furnish you will just have to make shelving & such curved & wider at the base then at the top but the loose center objects can be the same. It will give the rooms a unique feel.
    ahning I will…[Read more]

  • But the people there are too many of that you speak are in 3rd world countries, not here in Australia.
    The governments that need to take action are the ones that are too involved in selling every last asset the country has. Like the wood in it’s rainforests. Not here in Australia.
    I do shed tears for people that are not born as I think if I were…[Read more]

  • Ask at the nearest town bakery if they have day old bread you can take the fresh out & give the rest to the animals. You can normally get a large feed bag for $6. I wouldn’t suggest it only I do it myself, I buy the bag take out anything fresh, Kids take out loaves pull them apart eat the middle & throw the outer in the bucket for the animals.…[Read more]

Only one child per couple & those who…[Read more]

    I don’t see how having more children could impact on pollution. I think it is un-educated individuals that cause pollution & those that care little about the environment. We have always had big families because life is of happiness & watching the ones you love around you happy is the most resting feeling for the soul.
    I have 4 children…[Read more]

  • I want to buy a big bucket! we would use it in a flash! with most of the flour in reciepies replaced with whole wheat so add honey to it instead of sugar. Also the kids have go threw 4L in honey bread alone. Then there are the honey ginger buscuits we make.
    If only it wasn’t so far away!

    They are so cute, 😆
    I was so fascinated by my first litter, that survived! One had babies & I didn’t know she would & I didn’t have proper cages then, the poor little things fell threw the wiring, my pregnant cat adopted one but the rest were rejected by its mum as I had scooped them up to put them in a nest for her. You live & you learn…[Read more]

    if you have rabbits by no means bring wild ones on to your property as for eating. If the animal was hard to catch it is healthy, check for smooth coat & no blemishes on skin. If looks good, eat it. if you have any fears boil the meat for 10min first.
    I am no expert but I would eat a wild animal.
    If they survive the virus they are ammune & so are…[Read more]

    No they are fine with it as the grill is 1cmX1cm avairy wire & you can’t see in the picture but they have a flat rectangle plate in there too to lay on. the grid is very small compared to their feet as they are large rabbits. But as they hop around I don’t see the pain it is also the same as in the guide. the wire on the side of the cage is not…[Read more]

  • Could be young chicks can be delecate, could it have gone in their water or on their feed?

  • I have had that happen, just get a beer & open it stand close to the pig pour the beer into the bucket, let him have a drink then walk off to his feeder, he will follow!;)

  • Hi everyone, I would be interested to come & meet you all sometime. With the family in tow.

  • This one is not castrated as I am shooting him next month & still young so no point. I normally castrate them when they are 6weeks & small, they get over it quicker & are easier to deal with.
    & he just runs along next to me. the key is to use the same call when feeding etc you can train them like a dog but not if you want to eat them, you don’t…[Read more]
