    My husband and I decided to get chickens instead of paying the clark people about ten years ago. [​IMG] We got tired of the stink and how ucky we felt after they had been and sprayed. I have always had problem free chickies until now. We have four right now. Three were newly acquired a few months back and one is being a problem child which led us to BYC. My husband found the site. We are self empoyed. We own and opperate a machine shop on our twenty plus acres. The last few years we have had a garden. This year I would like to learn how to put some of the food up for winter. My husband worked for a bee keeper when he was younger so we just started with bees. They are arriving in april, enough for four hives. I love reading, scrapbooking and stamping and anything furry or feathered.

    Did you post about your problem chickie in one of the other areas ? Lots of help here, I'm sure there will be answers for you.

    Quote:I did and everyone seemed to think she needs more vit a or k. I then posted asking how to add it. Now I'm waiting on that one. Silly me I thought everything she needed was in her pellets, corn, house scraps and the property. Oh well, we live and learn. Now I just need to know how to get it in her.
