Giving a quick life update before I disappear again.
Chickens are doing great. Currently paying off a bunch of debt so I can finally finally renovate their poor coop. 'Rents have given the clear for rabbits since they have more experience having those as little 'uns. I've just started another AS program and hope to get my BS soon. During discussions with my classmates, I heard there's some sort of nut that exclusively feeds their chickens tomatos to give the yolk that "red" color and is selling their eggs for a ridiculous price.
Which I then went on to explain that the desired red/orange color should come from a balanced diet - which includes a ton more than tomato.
Having a stressful time at work and home life is not so great either.
@perchie.girl hey deb -- I hope you feel better. :(
Hey back at you.... working on getting better. Have you started working in your field?
WRT rabbits I am hearing great food to meat conversion so much so they out distance chicken by far.
Hope to meet you some day at a meetup.... but Life.... you know ...
