The chickens are handling the transition into winter np better than they did this year. The bad part is that they haven’t been laying three eggs a day and have been eating their own eggs BIG NO NO. We have tried a lot to get them to stop. So far JoJo and Pippa are fine it’s just Mable who is always having problems. We think it might be something about her breed of chicken we don’t know. If anyone out there does know please comment below a reason or a way to help. Note that we have tried a lot of things already! Mable is a Golden Laced Wyandotte. Plus I get a lot of viewers from places all around the world and that fascinates me! So I was wondering if anyone wanted to, to send me a picture of their chickens or even of the prettiest view where you live. Traveling has always fascinated me, as did chickens, so please do if you get the chance! I also wanted to talk about cicadas. I’ve mentioned before that chickens love to eat cicadas and so where I live there are dead ones all around on the sidewalk. If there are cicadas where you live feel free to bring them home and feed them to your chickens. They absolutely love them. Plus it’s a good source of protein and, if you have lazy chickens, it gets them running because they will definitely fight over it! A also never feed your chickens chocolate, alcohol, Clover, Alfalfa, Daffodil, Buttercup, Lamb’s Quarters,
Milkweed, Philodendron, Tulips or Wild Onion. These things are bad for your chickens. But don’t let this keep you from letting your chickens free range. If you have a lot of these plants around where you live it may not be the best idea. Chickens need to also eat either grit or very small rocks so that hey can grind up their food in their gizzard in order to eat it. So if you ever give your baby chickens lettuce or even a clump of grass keep a clump of dirt on the end of it in order to introduce them to the taste of dirt, certain minerals in dirt and even the texture of dirt. Also by doing this they now have the ability to grind up bigger foods.
