"You never know what you have til you've lost it" ... so the sayin goes.
Yes it is warm here... but we have to drive 2 hours to get to see and touch snow It is muddy in the winter (can't play in mud ! )
Wish we'd have a white Christmas just once. Then tryin to find a breed that can handle...
For removing internal parasites from humans, dogs, and cats-- especially the one that causes cancer "the Fluke" -- I've read Wormwood, Cloves, and Black Walnut Hulls Extract... from Dr. Clark. Has anyone else tried this method on chickens??
I say yes... get a little coop or build one.... it's cold where you are!!!
Think about gettin two or three more and you'll have eggs for breakfast!!!
Maybe the hobby found you? Hope you can befriend her!!! lol
Cost is the main issue, then absorbency. Straw (hay) bales here are $11 ea and not really as absorbent as shavings.
Shavings are $5/ bag here and absorb like a sponge. I hear fumes are not safe???
I heard there are more lice in some straw than hay, is that true??? That might be an issue, too!!!
