    I wasn't suggesting you shouldn't feed them. I still feed the chickens here three times a day with an 18% protein, 1% calcium all flock type feed.

    Shadrach's Lamps

    Left to right. Cherry, Almond, White Oak. All these woods split easily when drying from green unless the ends are sealed. Here the old school woodworkers used to tar the ends and dry lifted off the ground and covered with plant foliage which was kept slightly damp. There is a real art to drying...

    Two week old eggs should be fine as long as they haven't been heated up. I often collect week or more old eggs and haven't had a bad one yet.
