    If there is soybean in it, it must be boiled or roasted or it is toxic to poultry. Obviously not worth the effort.

    I know how you feel. My mom isn't quite as far along as yours yet, I think, but she is losing her memory, both short term and long term, It is as if she is disappearing. She would not come to live with us and lives in a senior retirement center where she gets the care she needs. I spend the day with her once or twice a week, but my siblings won't come at all because they get bored with her. She is at an argumentative stage where she insists things did not happen or whatever. She calls to ask about things she has misplaced or forgotten about, and it is so sad. I now am constantly questioning my own (numerous!) memory slips! My husband's father died with his memory entirely gone, so he worries, too. Guess our kids should really worry with dementia on both sides of the family!

    HELP!! I remember someone talking about the wonderful electric coop door with light sensor that they had installed, but I can't find it to get the name. Please can anyone recall the name of that marvelous electric door?

    kab~ I just thought Lavender might be a splash because her neck and head are darker, but I guess that's just the normal shading. I don't know much about all that stuff. I was just teasing about the length of the video-- I enjoyed all of it! It's a whole new world to me and I find chicken behavior very fascinating and entertaining. That's so great that Chance's foot healed so quickly.
    gunchief~ That reminds me that I need to get some of my neighbor's mulch from the giant tree they unfortunately had to cut down. It's nice because it's mixed with dirt. Hopefully it's not some kind of biohazard, but it's from across the street and they never had animals. Your flock looked like they were having a good time!

    Old Salt~ Your illustrative photos are very nicely done. You could make instruction manuals in your spare time. Then you could add another thing to your list of experiences. I like this photo of your shiny birds including a polite rooster who lets the ladies eat first.

    Thanks for sharing the grain info John, tis much appreciated.

    Been following Kabhypers ups and down and it has been great. Thanks for sharing e experience with us all. Still waiting for my guys to make an appearance, should be this week.
    Momma is looking rough, she has lost all colour in her face, can not tell about weight loss yet, but I guarantee it. Probably going to pick her up some electrolytes today, see if that helps her out any. Been spoiling the girls with 'hand fed' canned veggies, neither seem interested in e chicken food.
