That's Great! That is so nice of her. Kinda takes the worry away a little.
I don't know about the treats. I've never given my babies any. I give my chicks treats, but my ducks are more picky. Maybe it's just mine though. I can't get my adults to eat peas. I thought ducks loved peas.
unthaw peas, and smush them up and mix them with a little water. make a semi thickish soup with them
does that make sence??
and this has a few other options
it really does.
even tho the point is to get hatching experience.
well i guess i am tho. im learnin bout candling.
and how hot the bator makes my darn room at night.
and how to fix cracks (thanks celtic, used beeswax,can;t find my old crayons)
and how slow time goes when u r waiting for eggs !!!!
will i be able to see the heartbeat? so far the red dot isnt gettin bigger, just veining branching out
have u ever tried collard greens?
they were a BIG hit with mine.
they loved them .
mine eat just about any kind of lettuce.
they kind of liked the kale.
but they dont like corn . i mix some in their feed and they pick the good stuff out usually. unless its rly cold
o and what kind of chick starter do you guys use?
grandma is freaking out bcuz she read that medicated chick starter is bad.
but i have read its ok now a days.
so im kind of torn bcuz i can;t find unmedicated in our local feed stores.
i have 1 more to check tho next time im in indianna
I threw some left over romaine to them a couple nights ago and there it sits. LOL. Haven't tried collard greens though.. I'll give that a try.
Now my chickens are another story. There favorite is noodles and corn. Oh and mashed potatoes.
I feed medicated Dumor. It's the TSC version of Purina. I read that Purina actually makes it for TCS.
I also read that back in the day the medicated feeds were specifically designed for chickens and were back for the ducks, but now there are medicated for both. Did that make sense? Because I had the same concern at first when I kept reading that, so I did some googling.
the hen with babies that is penned up.. they eat anything u throw in there.
i throw them some when i take the ducks treats.
mine are picky 2, they wont eat wilty lettuce. or peas of they are frozen.
they wont eat bread.
or zucuni, no cucumbers.
or and they HATE cabbage
its their way or the highway .
but i can;t believe urs wont eat romaine, mine love it.
let me know how the collard greens go . hopefully they are a hit.
makes perfect sence.
thats prolly what i will end up getting.
unless rural king has non medicated (just so she will hush about it, and bcuz it will be cheaper, everything there is cheaper)
i tried to give her money for my goslings and she wont let me, she says shes using the money for bedding, feed, a new watterer,ect.
so no complaints i guess. lol . saves me some money just makes me feel bad she wont let me pay for them,.
