Thats great to make homemade items for keepsake. I know a gal who hates homemade stuff. She just doesn't understand the sentimental value of it all!

Good evening bird threaders!! Busy day here! Visited my aunt for a short while this morning and, guess what!, no walker or cane! She's doing so much better! We are planning on a short trip later this summer-- one of those dinner train trips--should be enjoyable.
I planned to copy what Princess is doing with the tires but I'm bogged down with other stuff. Like the garage door won't open because the breaker in the electrical box has been "thrown" and I can't figure out why. Makes me crazy. Because I can't get the door open I can't get the lawn mower out soooo can't mow . I tried the release cord on the door but , well, why won't that work?? Sheesh!! So, I went shopping. Hahaha!

AW, I've got an egg question--rather a nutrition question about these ladies of mine. The egg shells are very thin...what do I need to add to their diet ??

The main cause for an extremely thin egg shell is the lack of calcium, You can check with your local feed store for something with a higher level of calcium to add to their feed or water. I save my egg shells and crumble them up and feed them back to the hens along with all left over table scraps including any aged bread products. A packaged macaroni and cheese dinner is way too much for just me and my chickens love that and get it about once a week. When I give them table scraps, that is an additional treat not a replacement for scratch grains and layer pellets. I use the Dumor (Do more) brand of layer pellets. About the only thing you have to be careful with in feeding scraps, is to not give them raw potato peelings. Those are hard for them to digest. Cooked potatoes are okay.

Thanks. I will stop by the farm store this morning. I don't think they carry Dumor but I just bought a 40# bag of layer pellets the 4 hens have to eat their way through. There's gonna have to be a whole lotta eatin' goin' on! I give them some table scraps but there's not many as I eat out a lot . If I make up a box of Mac and cheese for everyone then its gone in one meal. Kids have a tendency to eat a lot if that stuff.... Lol

I was like, "Dang! This place is covered up in UFOs!" I'm afraid I scared the girls at the tanning place. I guess I missed April's Fools by 10 days. If I had grandkids, what a funny story to tell them someday.

Lol. I bought some of the crushed oyster shells for my hens hoping that'll thicken up the egg shells. Wonder how long it'll take 4 hens to do away with a 50#bag of that stuff? Lol

AW, I guess you're still working on your construction projects. Last report was you were collecting up materials to add onto your deck. I collect up project materials also. There's about 600 brick pavers. A couple hundred fire brick. Some sections of a mobile home frame that will be a small deck frame . I collected up about a dozen 30" concrete culvert and boy, oh, boy did that come in handy!

I feed 250 pounds of feed per month to 40 chickens, so with only 4 hens or 10% as many hens, they would eat about 25 pounds if that was all you fed them. But since it is a supplement, my guess is that it will last 6 to 8 months. lol
My property runs up a small incline from my back door, so my deck is 24 inches off the ground at the door level and even with the ground at the upper level. So that I can go up steps at my back door and up onto the deck and then walk out off the deck to the more level ground to the chicken house about 50 yards away. That eliminates me from having to climb the incline in winter ice and snow carrying water buckets and feed. But only climb the steps that are under roof.
The only problems with that are that the free ranging chickens can get on the deck from the upper side and wander around leaving choice morsels all over my deck furniture lol and the dog can go under the deck on the lower side and get into mud and track it on into the house at the back door.
I collected used decking from a deck I first tore down for a person who was no longer able to use their deck, brought it home and spent many hours removing old nails and screws and then placed the time weathered decking in a vertical position to essentially build a stockade around the deck lol instead of buying privacy panels. Cost in money... zero. Cost in effort.. one hard week lol
