LARGE CARDBOARD BOX FOR SELLING PET BED GIVE CHICKIES ROOM TO GROW
Bawk ... Is there an AA for chicken addicts?..I started out in Sept. 2012 just going to a chicken swap, because I wanted to get some the next spring. I came home with three. then i found Byc on the Internet.I found a rare breed (cream Leghorns blue egg laying chickens)imported I ordered two. A week later i went to pick them up. they had silkies and I just had to get one. Then I looked at all the silkies on the Internet and found out I could not order silkies till spring. So come January I ordered Silkies. while i was looking for them I found a one day special for Feather legs. Come Jan 31 they came. 25 of the cutest little fuzz balls. March I went to SS to get some more supplies . Chick days, had to order 3 Dominique's and found out you have to get 6 so also got 3 Silver lace Wyndottes. March 14 my 20 silkies arrived. they threw in 7 mystery red chickens, just to keep the silkies warm. The same night my son stopped by tsc told me they had the light Brahma's i had not gotten in my feather leg special, so he got 6 for me. SS called and told me the chickens I had said I wanted were ready to order how many did I want ordered 6 more for April 4, Last night I went to take my daughter-in-law to meet my son,after we got to our meeting spot he called and said he was going to meet us at tsc,,well I decided by now to get some more wire to enlarge the chicken run. his wife told him no more chickens till he gets them a coop built...so after they Left I got the 99cent pullet special 9 MORE......PLUS an Circulated air Incubator with turner and an egg basket..think i am going to need it. BWAAAK ....Are you keeping count? So I decided to start a page for Chicken Addicts.
I am up to 70 chickens now and worry how fast I am going through feed . at 1/4 lb per chicken this should be about 18 lbs a day when they are all laying. If you have standard chickens you would divide your number of chickens by three and this will tell you how much feed to buy. I feed my birds fermented feed. How many of you have feed your birds fermented feed?
If you might Be a chicken addict this might be the forum for you.
