    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Does anyone use a calendar to know when to do things for their chickens?

    Such as when to dust for mites.

    No, but it's an excellent idea. Like, a basic poultry maintenance schedule?
    I've been tracking things like hatchings, number of eggs/day, the occasional death, harvest, stuff like that. But the maintenance tasks need to be included too -

    Let's design one!

    Ha funny! The reason I am asking is because I have no clue as to what I am really doing! I guess that is not completely true, since they haven't died on me, and they have started laying a few eggs. [​IMG] BUT I do have Storey's guide. So I am game if you are. Maybe some others will chime in as to when and what they do.
