. What color eggs does she lay
Hey guys! I just read the rest and then fell asleep. I have a cold. VERY unhappy about that. Nice birds eveyone! Sorry you need to sell yours camping.
. Thank you. Roost
I am out of data for this cycle. I will be back around the 20th. Too much surfing about the flood!! You guys be good, and if you aren't good, don't do anything I wouldn't do.
I will probably be 150 pages behind when I get back!
. I am on my iPad. What's wrong
I'm keeping the hens and roo (six total), the polish and cochin, and the two "special needs" sussex pullets, and the guineas. Everything else is listed. I'm more willing to sell some of the mixes than my EEs.
I've been using flock raiser which is $4 more than "regular" layer feed. We just can't get on the same page. He sees $4 x 52 (a bag of feed a week) and thinks it's a wasted $208 a year. He also panicked when he realized feed was $80 a month.
I'm hoping I'm wrong and the bag lasts more than a week. We have over 30 chickens and I know that's not really a lot, but it's more than he wants to feed. Especially since we're getting three eggs a few times a week. :/
New pup is Ben, but we're not keeping that name. Just until he learns a few other things.
. Thank you. Wishing .. We had a very rainy summer. That's helped.
Next year I plan on keeping track of eggs and feed. I did this in the 70s to see if they were paying their rent. They were. And when I included the winter when there were few eggs, they broke even for the year.
And there is always chicken dinner to think of.
And your own eggs are fresher and better than store bought eggs.
camping, have you tried fermented feed? Lots of people, enola included, say that it really cuts down on the feed. I haven't tried it yet.
