wow, alot going on here. My 4 layers are molting and they have stopped laying. My 4 month old ornamental layers are not laying, well one is
she is lakenvelder but her eggs are tiny. My ornamental layers are flying all over the place. I lost one last night but found this morning in the field next door. If they fly out into the dog yard they become a dog toy that does not survive. I have cut their wings back so much but they still enjoy flying. They are very racy birds light and flighty. I wish I hadn't ordered them.I like my big fat hens that are content to lay, lay, lay.
I did make my own Luv Nest herbal additive for my birds. I don't know if they like it but I love it. It is so expensive so I just order bags of the different herbs and made up my own.
I also went to Modesto Milling and bought their feed. It is wonderful. I love it. It feels good to buy good feed for my birds. I just dont like the big companies like Purina.
I also saw a large wooden crate by the Costco dumpster so I had my husband go get it. He found a chicken coop in the dumpster that someone had returned. He got that also. What would be the best way to clean it? Scrub it with a bleach solution?
Any way like i said alot going on here. I have a litter of puppies that are 5 weeks and they take up alot of my time.
