Re: Shell-less eggs

The egg shells have to be "sterilized" i.e. baked in the oven and broken up enough not to resemble eggs, coz you know what would happen ;) I find oyster shells fed in separate feeder, (I use old rabbit feeders nailed to the wall, since they self regulate calcium intake, is a good indication that the...

Re: New Arrival

I must say the SOLO Ameraucana hatched last year hs never rely integrated in to the flock. After the first summer of hanging out with mama, she is now truly solo, completely ignoring her flock of dozen Ameraucanas, doing her own thing, always way away from others, really surprised nothing picked her...

Re: Mice control

This time of the year, when apples come in to the cold storage mice seem to follow, this year only caught one visitor and after repairing the small opening it must have gotten thru, that seems to be it for the year. :xfingers:
