    I feed layer crumbles - 18 % protien. But am going to try the agway brand @ 21% protien. My birdswaste the mash. I use a piece of metal gutter capped on the ends for a feeder. I put 2 chains on it about 1/3 in from each end and hang it from the wall. I raised it so the feeder is level with their backs. It works great & is cheap, for $7 @ lowes you get a 12' piece of gutter. I made 2 feeders out of it.[​IMG]

    Been a while since I've been on her but I thought I would let everybody know I've got hatching eggs available. I've got buff barred, mille fleur, and mottled cochin bantams, and lemon blue standard cochin bantams. Here are some new pics including the chicks that hatched today, a mille fleur and lemon blue cochin!

    Hey all, popping back in again - and boy did I have some catching up to do! Still recovering from the loss of my duck flock. I got some new girls whose parents where from holderread's, so they're very nice birds :) I also have some ducklings arriving the week of the 28th from a breeder - and her birds are descendants of holderread birds too! I'm gonna have a nice breeding flock, it seems. She also agreed to toss in a 'mystery duckling' from one of the other breeds she works with. I can't wait to find out what I'm getting!

    And on an unrelated note, who has some EE hens/pullets they'd like to sell? I have only one right now, and one maybe one from featherz (thanks again!) who isn't laying yet so the jury's still out on her, and I'd like to get some more beautiful blue eggs each day.
