Last time I posted my fat little chickens got too much scratch, some of the links included info about wheat in feed is bad for chickens. Now my very own human lab results are in, yesterday the doc explained I will not eat wheat for the rest of my human life. The MD letter included my autoimmune disease state is related to 2, count them TWO genes expressing gluten sensitivity, but also stated "90 percent of Americans have one gene expressing gluten sensitivity". So what is up with wheat? What the hay?! DH compares it to the fall of the roman empire being due to plumbing, but Roman plumbing was made of lead, so they all got insane and made really bad decisions. So we have easily grown food, but our food is made of wheat, which is making us sick. So the kids want to feed our chickens leftover sandwich bits from their lunchsaks, but really the chickens are not supposed to get wheat. And neither am I. Oh woe is me. What's in laying feed, anyways? The label says its all vegetarian. What is it? Not that it matters, my chickens dont eat much of it anyways. They eat grass and bugs and little varmints they catch. But what is up with wheat? I feel so cornfused.
