    Thats good, Id also wear a mask while preparing if you must feed it.

    Is diatomaceous earth likely to contribute to the development of cancer?

    When mice were forced to breathe diatomaceous earth for one hour each day for a year, there was an increase in lung cancers. When rats were fed silica at a high dose for two years, there was no increase in cancer development.

    What Ash said, also known as a German turnip. Those Germans always do things different.

    Thanks! Okay so have googled that and am a little confused in the same breath they called it a perenial and said to cut it off at ground level. Don't want to accidentally kill her plant. So will it reshoot?

    It also said it tastes like broccoli stem which is good cause that is my favourite part of the broccoli

    Hello again everyone!
    I'm back, lol just read through 200 posts!
    Had a bit of a scare with my girls not laying for about a week and a half. But they back on the lay. 2 eggs today!
    I know all the coop talk was a while ago but I wanted to show mine. Was built by a family friend. I'm VERY impressed!
