The chickens have all finally started to lay. All of the newbies have all grown up enough to start laying now, and my older girls have finally come back on the lay after months off, after I changed their feed to a higher protein feed, and I also separated out some of the roosters, as the ration was way too high of roosters to hens. The ration is still too high for my liking, so I will need to separate out some more. We will have to cull shortly and try our hand at processing our own roosters, as I really only want to have 1-2 roosters at the moment. So, 9 eggs today, and the mix of colours and sizes makes me happy.
I am currently also making a loaf of bread in my new, secondhand, bread maker. I picked this up today from the 2nd hand store for $20, so I will see how it goes and whether it makes an alright loaf or not.
***The breadmaker ended up having an electrical problem...when it goes in to bake mode it trips the power, and probably needs a new element, which will cost about $150 installed...so I returned it today for a refund...never mind, I will just keep using my old one...
Hooryt for eggs of many different colours and shapes.ReplyDelete
I love my chickens, and I love having different breeds. It's just so much more interesting having some colour in the egg carton. And the different breeds all have such different personalities...Delete
