You know, I always forget that the one animal my brother in law has lots of experience with are chickens, I really should listen to him more, he knows way more than I do.

Hello Pensmaster! Happy birthday to your Dad, enjoy the family visit! 
I hope you are about done with that cold/flu.

Sorry you are sick.

Drive safely, looking forward to pics.

LOL. I sprayed someone in the face with the dogs kennel cough stuff before.

I hatched marans and OE together not so long ago.

Thanks Mike. Visit went very well. Tomorrow is the main party but today was his birthday so he made it. yesss.gif

Which is why my trap it set at all times.

If I set traps, I would would have to quit my job with all the time I spent relocating raccoons, only to have new ones, plus possums, skunks, and armadillos come back in, as well as all the neighbors' cats (ok, so I don't think armadillos eat chickens, but they are wrecking the garden!) And I can't keep the 'coons out of the chicken water outside of the coops. I just try to protect the chickens at night and keep the local rat population at bay...

That would be too much work. And rats are a whole nother kettle of fish. Got in late tonight and one was scurrying away as I got into barn

Back in the old days when I was growing up, we baled our own hay. Mostly it was timothy, orchard grass and fescue.
I think in all the years our horses had hooves trimmed twice. However, they had 100 acres to run with rocky slopes so I'm sure that made a big difference. They almost never went into the barn. We never vaccinated nor did they ever see a vet.

My comment that Jerusalem Artichokes were the best source of sugar for alcohol was from a 2 day alcohol fuels seminar put on by the Mother Earth News. They taught how to make alcohol from a wide array of vegetative sources and the yield of each. They also taught how to convert any gasoline engine to run on alcohol.
There was a pickup truck, a car, a Harley Davidson and a generator all running on alcohol. After hours of the Harley running on pure alcohol, you could put your hand right on the pipes and it didn't burn.

100 is a good number.  Tell him happy birthday from all of us.


Mother Earth News did a great in depth study of all the old methods of storage.

Some were worse than doing nothing.

Question on the sugar level of Jerusalem artichokes. Is that processed sugar? I've read they are supposed to be good for diabetics would the sugar level be a contradiction? When I've eaten them they don't taste sweet to me.

Told dad hi for everyone. Learned some more family history tonight. Fun night.
