    Quote:the chickens free range..so I thought I did not have to give grit as well....is this correct?

    thanks injunjoe and year of the rooster..

    I was wondering if I was doing ok with them.....I have never had chickens before so I am learning as I go..I have learned a lot from this forum...

    its kinda funny i found myself sitting watching them today eating black berries, watermelon, and strwberries wondering if they are happy or not....the dog wags her tail..the cat purrs...how do chickens show they are happy...well I guess I found out..they give you eggs.. [​IMG]
