Thanks Daniel. I compost in place in the poorest areas. Which is on every slope . And that's almost the entire place. I've found a lot of info on what not to feed the chickens. There's also a lot on what they can be fed but everything can't be listed. I read an interesting article on egg production and the small quantity of eggs hens laid when they subsisted on table scraps and what they could scratch from the ground. One hen would only lay about 90 per year.

Joan, it is good to hear from you and I'm happy you're settling into your new place.

I make so many mistakes on this little pad.

Thanks Spud. I'll check out the one l missed.

Joan, l don't put cooked anything in the compost heaps. May be the humidity but couples of times my gdaughters have done it it soured the entire box.
I just found out my gson is moving black to ky for a better job. I doubt he will stay much longer than it takes to flesh out his résumé but that should be a couple years at least.
He told me his vet in az has never seen a case of heartworms in an animal so he can't get his dogs preventative there.
No mosquitoes must be awesome.

dI am so happy in my new home. I have many things to do and a lot of contact with my great-grandchildren. They have delightful curiosity and ask great questions.

Spud, these sites are terrific. Thanks! My granddaughter can use this information and I will be more careful about what I put in the chicken's bucket. I am sure th chickens will benefit and I will not make mistakes.

I am busy in the new greenhouse. Have it all planted with vegetables for the winter and making a few experiments with perennial plants for next spring. I look for fire resistant plants and hope to have all efforts finished to make the homes and buildings safe from forest fires. There have been sightings of a cougar on the southern edge of our 17 acres. Hope he leaves our new chickens alone. We have secured the coop and the free range as best we can for now. Cougars climb trees to get over the 7-foot protection we have now.

I give Michelle's chickens fresh vegetable and fruit trimmings every morning. They seem interested in it all and there are no remnants the next morning. I put any cooked fruits and vegetables in our compost. I don't know if the chickens like cooked ones or not.  I don't give them meat.

Daniel is the person I ask when it comes to chickens.

Does anyone feed their chickens cooked vegetables. I don't give them pasta or meat but I don't think leftover peas or mixed vegetables will harm them. Any ideas?

Picked some small Minnesota Midget Cantaloupes from my garden yesterday and ate one for breakfast. Yummy!
