If everyone is going to toss out their most useful books, I have one I
wouldn't be without. Carla Emery's Old Fashioned Recipe Book. A large
section on raising chickens (and most any other farmyard critter)
naturally. Huge garden/ harvest / canning sections, and about every other
topic you could imagine. Runs about $25 in most places, and it's massive
(890+ pages) Because of the Y2K topics this book may be hard to find.
Homesteader's Connection and AlpineHaus both normally stock it. I can get
the info if anyone is interested.
Note: A couple of folk wrote directly to me after my chicken lament and
said they'd tried raising chickens w/out commercial feeds and had poor
results. You can do it but it's tough to find all the things they may need.
Instead, try game bird starter. The formula is pretty much the same as
chicken starter, but turkeys and game birds can't stand the medications, so
it's unmedicated. The cost will be a bit more.
Right now I'm on a new 'thread'.,, realizing that grasshoppers are inactive
at night, I've been trying to determine where all mine are going. Said that
they sleep on the tips of grass stems, but I can't seem to find any. could
it be possible they're all sleeping somewhere together? (Thinking of ways
to net them for the chickens.)
