    Me and my phone just had to get a little juice :)

    JWB, sorry you've lost some flock. Good luck with the vet!

    Ravyn, who are you trying to kid... Cut back :gig
    You might be trying to reduce breeds, but will headcount actually decrease? :);)

    At least for a while, it had better... feed consumption is outrageous right now and just maintenance is too much... and it's gonna get colder and worse... :/



    I'm keeping the darkest layers... and think the cockerel will be up to snuff by Spring... should be covered... I don't usually get rid of the older before testing the younger, but I gotta cut back... :/

    Yeah, its amazing how much less feed you go through when you cut back. Of course, the survivors have been eating Christmas leftovers and that has helped reduce feed consumption, too.
