My last hatch this summer, SC said that if I got a 90% hatch that he would "throw me a parade". I got 100%, so he threw me a parade...lol He did a great job and it became a "thing". Just a bunch of celebratory pics/gifs and usually with a bit of humorous user specific jokes added in. It is the one thing I hold him in high regards for- his penchant for putting together things like that. So he set his standards for when he would "throw a parade" for hatchers, and if a hatcher met that standard he would put it together.
Since it is left to me to continue with, I want to set the standards to a more reasonable range.
So when I bought these two hens, the owner gave me a bag of Southern States Rock-N-Rooster Premium Five Grain Scratch. It's basically a high end chicken scratch. My local feed store does not carry it and I loved it. So I decided to make my own. I bought regular chicken scratch, BOSS, corn, hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds. I'm also planning on mixing in some dried mealworms, when my next order comes in. They went crazy over it today! And I'm going to try adding some to my fermented feed as well.
