    Hi I live on a 2000 acre Farm I raise ducks,geese,turkeys,pigeons,chickens, emus, Guinies,peacocks, pheasants,and I raise other animals.


    I have laying mash (non-medicated) in my automatic feeder all year round. And I put 1 flake of alfalfa on the ground once a week. I feed them oats and bread in the summer and whole corn in the winter. And I get a lot and I mean a lot of eggs from all 80 of my egg laying hens I don't have a rooster with my egg laying hens but I do have a rooster in another coop with some hens.
    I really hope this helps everyone Who has chickens .

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
