Good morning friends
Thanks again .. lots of great information on feed. I have mentioned before in the past that the gals get Country Heritage Certified Organic Coarse Layer Mash because they are not just fussy about large pellets, they will not eat pellets whatever the size I think I pay about $36 for 20kg but have seen it at $43 in some places. It is expensive but with only a few little gals, not too costly for us as it lasts a while and because they like it, not much wastage. Also, because it is certified organic, depending on what organic grains are available, the content can vary which gives them some variety.
Fancy great pictures of the pumpkin smash party .. especially love the mid chomp cat pic
Anniebee yeah, I am not sure if you would have much luck getting live meal worms in your area and if you could, they would probably be expensive. I know you do not like online shopping but if you change your mind, I fully recommend Martyn’s Mealworms, great prices and great service. His prices for dried meal worms are also quite reasonable.
As suggested previously by someone else, apparently they are fairly easy to ‘grow your own’ but I choose not to go down that path just because I really do not need another ‘critter colony’ to tend and prefer the time saving option
Dusty is pretty much the only girl who will take on an earth worm, the others do not seem particularly interested. Maybe if they were not spoiled with meal worms they might think differently.
Wow, catching the gold fish, draining and cleaning the pond and refilling it was a bigger endeavour than I thought it was going to be but I got it done. Turns out there was quite a layer of sediment and with it now gone and in the compost bin, they have more depth to their pond. Might have to contemplate doing the smaller, middle pond next weekend.
