    Just love your blog. We raised chickens years ago and I enjoyed them so much. We’re considering doing that again. Can they be fed without using the expensive ready mixed feeds found at most feed suppliers? I want them to be in top health, so don’t want to sacrifice nutrition just to save money.
    Thanks!

      Hi Arlene,
      Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! I am experimenting with mixing my own organic chicken feed from whole grains that I purchase from a buying club. I wouldn’t say that it is inexpensive, and I’m still trying to get the ingredients worked out for good nutrition. Right now I’m having trouble convincing the chickens to eat their oyster shell…so the egg shells are a bit on the thin side.

      There are quite a few articles out there for mixing your own chicken feed and cutting down on the cost of feed. I’m hoping to get a little more experience under my belt in this subject so that I can share the info with others. Thanks for asking!

    We have the hickory nuts here. It’s good to know one can eat them, but I should can’t imagine all the work involved in it. So little meat in them. I do love to see the rich soil under the hickory trees from years of decomposition. Beautiful photos.

        Carol Deppe in her book ,The Resilient Gardener, mentions that the infestation of worms often happens after the nuts hit the ground and have been lying around for a while. So her answer was to clear the ground of fallen nuts and be sure to collect them each day. The book is a really good read.
