Yup. We have too. Stock-up what you can, be as frugal as possible.
Most of our coop minus the wire fencing is all re-purposed materials.
I'm really not expecting our economy to recover either. They are trying to collapse it on purpose, (it's apparent).Survival mode is a readiness mode. And everyone better well be ready!
You have some pretty babies, Ponypoor.Have to say though I do appreciate the convenience of the horses feed
...and the chickies feed also. Very easy and convenient to throw down some ration for them. We don't by always have enough leftovers to feed them. But it's not some fancy feed, just a feed the local mill makes for the chookies! Twice a day I soak it in hot water to make a mash which they gobble up. They don't need anything expensive or fancy. Chickens are easy to please
