Hi Victoria!

I'm very excited that you have come to join us here for the next few days! Hope you'll stick around long after that though!

Looking forward to reading some "chicken" postings! I have a few questions I'd like to find some answers to regarding our feathered friends.


Til then!
Aldona

Hi Victoria, I just hatched my first batch of chicks and am learning as I go. I'm interested in alternatives to medicated feed to keep my chicks healthy.

Victoria!
Love our poultry! Love our Rocks and our Brahmins!
One of our hens that went broody and grew up two chicks has not laid since! That was 4 months ago!
Any ideas please?

Welcome, Victoria! We are hoping to get to 2 chicks/hens soon, once we move to Pismo Beach, California (I think that is the limit for our size of lot).

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and only one of the 2 winners was on the daily-ish email...bummer. You really got to be on the daily-ish to win...

tim Trammell

Congratulations Tim!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.
