Re: Coronavirus - how much do you worry ?

Tom - Your body would create antibodies for that strain of the virus. Just like the common cold that we can get over and over again because the virus mutates.

Re: Coronavirus - how much do you worry ?

Here are DH's numbers. Of course, they are always changing and some #'s have been rounded. 7.8 people per one thousand of Canada’s population will die in 2020, with approximately 40,000,000 in our population; 7.8 X 40,000,000/1000 =312,000 This 312,000 is Canada’s deaths predicted for 2020. The tota...

Re: RIP fawn killer (graphic pic)

There are lots of coyotes here; we hear them yipping quite often.

Funky Chicken

I have a RIR, Scrawny Scarlett, that I have separated from the flock because she was getting pecked and still has a fairly bare neck. She is now company for the old docile cochin, Anna. Although Anna does let Scarlett know who eats first. Twice this week, I have witnessed Scarlett doing a funky back...

Re: Unhealthy hen

Farrrier - Bumblefoot was included with our introduction to keeping hens. With ours, it is usually caused by a cut in the foot that gets infected. We're on a century old farm, and with that, there can be broken glass where the hens dust bathe. And I've gone through their yard with a metal detector a...

Re: Just for a chuckle...

Yup that's about it. Someone we know has a relative in Washington State who said that when Trump is re-elected the COVID cases will all disappear because it was a hoax! Seriously! Up here, the news media is really stoking the fear of covid flames. Last night DH was doing some arithmetic with the %a...

Re: Oreka Solutions info rec'd for feed & black soldier fly

Got my Snackyard order today; it is the dried Black Soldier Fly meal worms. Yay! The hens liked them; I mixed them in with their scratch. I did a price comparison with Chubby and there is not enough of a cost difference, so I would order from Snackyard again. Knowing that the farm is in Cambridge an...

Re: Meat birds

We did our own 20 birds this year as well as 9 turkeys and 4 cockerels. It's not a fun job, but like Tom we know where they came from and what they were fed. I don't miss them either. Meat chickens are a nasty lot. And I don't miss having to get 3 different buckets of feed ready - between the meat c...

Re: Oreka Solutions info rec'd for feed & black soldier fly

Interesting thanks for the info. I looked into Enterra in BC a couple years ago, as they produce a black soldier fly meal I wanted to use as an animal based protein source for my quail and other birds, but they were only selling in 500 pound totes , a bit more than I wanted. That Gallus feed supple...
