    I do the same, I just bought 100# of corn and 100# of BOSS to help keep calorie intake high, I do not worry about the protein as much this time of year or the "harmful" affects of corn.

    With 30 hens I would hope you are getting at least one egg a day, or I would send them all to camp!

    I picked 26 frozen eggs yesterday. A product of us being gone all day.
    Did you know if eggs are just getting to frozen and the shells haven't cracked yet, they crackle when you pick them up. I've never seen anything like that before. The sound is unique. The eggs were all slushy. The dogs got a few the rest we will eat and may scramble and feed back tonight. Especially if tonight's eggs are frozen too. It got up to 2 here today and spat a dusting of snow so we may be ok since we won't be gone late tonight

    Wow, we have no wind here at all, I was just out and filled wild bird feeders and it is almost pleasant out.
