Rain is still coming down here, but we need it. Glad it finally rained! ☺ I think you are correct, your girls won't care of its still raining, and they may get stubborn and not lay, ,lol.
well, I've never done it before.... So I got 1000 from PETSMART and then when I got home, came home and put some oatmeal in my 3 drawer Steralite Container and then added some baby Carrots....OMG, They must have been so thursty the attached to them like crazy... today the carrots are all gone... so I put some more in along with some apple... the problem is that it is soon to be winter and so our house is not so warm... Dad built a little fire this morning so I put the container down by the fire stove..... keeping them warm enough is going to be the hardest part....
when I got home and read a bit more, I ordered more on line at rainbow mealworms and I ordered some bran from them too... I guess the like bran also so I'll mix some in as soon as I get it.... I think the ones I ordered will be healthier.... I can't wait to give some to my chickens....
