COMMENT OF THE WEEK
“I picked up 21 chicks that walked through my yard last April and put them in a cage (don’t think anyone missed them) but it wasn’t until they were freed and allowed to start finding their own food and spaces that they started laying. Now they sleep in the pomerac tree and eat anything they can find or that’s tossed out the kitchen window. We still feed them occasionally with the factory feed but that’s more to ensure that they can still be tempted back into the coop in the event that they stop laying and need to be curried instead.”
