Also going to stop by tractor supply and concoct my own chicken crack...grab some scratch, some BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds) and maybe some mealworms too. Toss it all together in the big blue bin hubs got for me for this purpose...win. Anyone think of any other goodness I should add?
...the mealies will be sparse though since those guys are kinda pricy. Sigh.
Then I get to go to a mall a ways away to return a shirt. (Ordered online. Too big. Sigh. But...want to stop by a Vicky see's anyway to get measured for some new foundation garments....so may as well just go in. And see what they got in store too mwahahaha)
So tempting. Want to improve and update my work wardrobe. But...not sure how much longer I'll be in this office environment...oh temp jobs. Got an interview doing admin stuff for a construction company not next week but the week after...it's part time only but hey. At least it'd be something. And not so far away. (Pretty close to where hubs works actually). Also put in for a reception job at another place....fingers crossed but the ad was a posting off Facebook and it seemed to generate a lot of buzz and interest so we shall see....I don't know. It would be nice...
Sounds like a nummy mix. I'd go easy on the scratch. The corn is great for body heat in the winter, but it's pretty low protein. Alfalfa hay is a great source of protein and greens. It's cheap too. They LOVE the leaves. I keep a flake in the run for my hens.
I hope you treated yourself to some pretties at Vicky's!
