    just wash well, and feed now... it is already sprouted, you don't have to wait for greens.

    That is why I use just a regular rubber pan for a waterer... less operator error [​IMG]

    Al, I'd rather not risk it. It's quite widespread. I'm going to try with some unmixed grains next. Maybe the peas first.

    Hennible: Breaking even is about all a person can ask for...or do you think your customers would accept a nice little increase in the egg price? [​IMG]

    Thanks tnt and mini for thoughts on our limping girl. She has the swelling down but weight bearing is another story. She's got a good amount of discomfort. So Ibuprofen, rest, immobilizing the ankle is our strategy the next two days. Called the school she's got permission to carry aruond a backpack and use the elevator and get more ambulating time to get to her classes.
    Securing crutches somewhere today is my task.

    The broody Momma is looking so sweet there in her cage with biddies.

    Yep, I realized I have a frozen heap too. Waiting on a sorta sunny warm day above freezing will have to do for now.
    Somehow after one of the roosters hogged the favorite nest box yesterday after the four eggs in the morning, we ended up with 6 more by dinner????? Good luck charm? We had been down to 4-5 a day.

    Interesting... I've tried the small water container a few times but found the chickens just knock it over. Or are you talking about one of those heavy rubber feeders?
