i had some organic tofu that just expired, so... chickens got that. and because it was a box in my pantry they got that several times. works like egg making booster it turned out... hens get into a fight for it. must smell good for them or something...
for disinfectant look up potassium permanganate. look for concentration and usage carefully, as in larger concentrations it kills anything including person who tries to drink that, so keep away from kids and such. gets rid of iron bacteria too (if someone needs that for well water). what to buy: look for greensand filters stuff. that will last you life time... depending on concentration is is survival water purification and any other uses, high concentration is poison.
frozen egg thing was solved easy... it turned out the hen on bottom of the chain was not finding next box... suitable, so i made me cardboard walls between nesting boxes, now all of them get used, no more digging eggs in the ground or rolling them, 'no see each other' on the nest means no trouble. thin cardboard wall seems to do that trick.,
lost one hen to unknown predator :(
