    Hi everyone,
    Being from RI my husband does a bit of fishing. When he filets the fish I always want to cook up the carcass and give it to the girls. Great protein!! But we are concerned about the bones. Have any of you ever tried this?
    Thanks for your input.

    Hello fellow Rhode Islanders! I am in Cumberland. I have 10 hens, used to be 12 but we lost one this summer to who knows what and another a few days ago to sudden death. I have 4 buff orpingtons, 4 brown leghorns, and 2 (used to be 4) americaunas. They are a riot! Not a huge fan of the leghorns, I'm much more of an Orpington person but they're all fun and they are all sweethearts in their own quirky ways. I never intended to have leghorns but they were in desperate need of a home and they just kind of stayed!

    We've gotten our orpingtons and americaunas through Ventura Grain in Taunton. We've also gotten 6 broilers from them as well and had 100% survival to slaughter at 10 weeks :)

    Ugh! The person who made these rules clearly never had chickens [​IMG] I live on 7 acres so 10 chickies is nothing!
