    OKay I know this isn't about chickens but its for my "Pretty Girls". I am looking for hosta plants that anyone in nepa in the Bloomsburg, Berwick Shickshinny areas is looking to get rid of. I will be more then happy to come dig them out when they come up if you nolonger want them. My "Pretty Girls" 's coop is in the shade and I can't seem to get anything else to grow around it. So if you have any of you want to get rid of and our in my area please let me know. [​IMG]

    My girls are in a run so they could only eat them through the fence. But I try to give them lots of goodies besides their mash and corn. Veggies, the really like cucumbers and lettus and the occasional grapes.

    I can't plant anything around my coop because it is inside the goat pen and the goats would eat it up. Ha Ha.
