Mostly because she is the only one who can comfortably fit through the back door of the chicken coop.
After transitioning all our animals to a sprouted fodder-based diet, we are seeing great change in their health. The French Angoras have softer, fuller coats and larger litters of kits as well as acting more active and full of spirit. Our chickens are even laying eggs with darker orange yolks with much more flavor than before. (And our feed bill has been cut by two-thirds!) No complaints around here about the fodder… from us or the animals. Dandelion’s most recent litter is even starting to nibble on her fresh barley fodder!
Look what you have made me do! I actually drew up plans for a grub growin’ box. Eww. Eww guys! Can we call it growing? Maybe raising grubs? It seems weird to think that luring flies to lay larvae in a box of rotting compost could be called “raising”. But in any case, I guess I’m going to take the plunge.
I have officially given in to peer pressure. Why do you guys recommend the nastiest projects for me to try out? Eww. Just eww. I’m going to need a real strong drink tonight before I get started on this one.
