    Will the eggs be ok?

    I have a broody chicken sitting on 3 Call Duck eggs. She's in a shed which is quite poorly ventilated and doesn't let light in, so today I thought I would be nice and shove a bit of wood side ways in the pop hole to hold it open but make it so none of the hens could get into disturb her. Well...

    Can hens be fed just grass?

    I'm doing an assignment and one is to compare two different methods of feeding. I was going to compare feeding layers and having grass fed ones. But the big question is, is there hens that are just fed on grass? because I really don't know. Or do they have to have feed supplemented?

    Can anyone help me figure this out?

    I'm doing a write up on an assignment for college and I need to figure out how much it costs daily to feed the hamster I did my plan on. The college gets 20kg bags which cost £17.64 and the hamster is fed 10g daily. How much does it work out as a daily cost to feed it?

She lived to a amazing age of 7 which is higher than...
