Back Again

Hello, everyone. It's been awhile, all of my chickens are doing well. Their not laying much due to the excessive heat, but their otherwise ok. I will try and post some pictures of them soon. In one of the next posts I will post some info on a new blog I will be setting up soon. More posts coming soon.

I'm back

Hey, sorry for the long gap in posts. It's been crazy. My chickens are doing good, my older chickens have resumed laying. The new chickens, haven't started laying yet, I'm not sure what's up with that. Hopefully they'll start laying soon. I can't guarantee regular posts right now, but I'll try to post more often. And in the coming months keep an eye out, I'm looking into getting honeybees, and when I do, I may start a blog on raising my honey bees. Well, that's all for now. Keep visiting.

A Welcome Sight

Hi, sorry for the long lapse in posts again. I have some good news. Look below.

Last week, my mom heard a hen cackling, so a little while later I checked the nesting boxes, and there was an egg. They've finally started back laying, now I'm getting three eggs a day, which is pretty good from the five hens I have. My  baby (I can't really call them babies anymore, their 14 weeks old)  chickens are doing good, I should get some eggs from them by about January. My dad and I are building a coop for them, I'll show you some pictures of the coop soon. Keep visiting.

Homemade Electrolyte Solution

There for a while my chickens wouldn't drink regular water, so I filtered their water, and added this electrolyte solution that my mom found online.

1 cup of water

1/8 tsp. Salt

1/8 tsp. Baking Soda

2 tsp. Sugar

Generous Dash of Cayenne Powder

Mix up, and add 1 cup for every gallon of water, or give 1 cup to any chicken that is too dehydrated.

Here are the links where we found this recipe.

I do not take any credit for the recipe. The only thing I altered was by adding the cayenne powder.

That's all for now. Keep visiting.
