    Gosh you're so nice kloppers. Just know that if ever I sound too bossy on here you can ignore me if you want. Usually what I say though comes from my own errors in chickening and I just want to save you the headaches I had. :)

    Holm I'm north of Brainerd one hour. Pretty close to Leech Lake. Jerryse will be my close neighbor when he builds and moves up here to God's country with his pear trees. :D

    Yeah me too. I think that some folks think the oyster shell is good enough but I saw my first winter that it wasn't quite getting the job done.

    How do you know if they aren't getting enough grit, impacted crop? undigested food in the poo?
