So, We May Have Chickens.... This Month?!
Sam the Fireman, chicken man and neighborhood revitalizer extraordinaire, has decided he has too many chickens. He has 10 hens and one rooster. He wants to get rid of some since they are just too many for 2 people. Neighbor Katherine might take some, and I definitely want some. I want 3. The hens are already one year old, so I don't have to worry about raising little peeps for our first go 'round. What are your best chicken keeping tips? Is there anything special I should know besides what I can read online? Momma Gardener told me about how when she was a kid, her dad would feed the hens a mixture of grit and buttermilk every Sunday, and this would help insure a strong shell with no bumps. Any secrets anyone wants to share? Thanks everyone!!!
