This Weeks Questions and Tips For Big Bird
1. Your blog has so many ideas that it makes me tired to think about implementing them. If you could add just one food what would it be?
Answer: I would chose Quinoa because it has the most effect on improving the birds health of anything I have fed. For years i have put cooked quinoa in my nestling food but I was totally amazed when I fed just cooked quinoa as the main ingredient with broccoli and bee pollen or poppy seed. Just a few days and the birds condition improves even when you think it is already very good.
1. My hens that I just purchased are duds, they are eating their eggs!
Answer: Hens are great recyclers, they often eat thin shelled eggs that break as she sits on them. Make sure to provide Calcium, D3 and Magnesium, a great product is sold by Avitech.
Preparation for egg laying starts several months before breeding season but you can catch up with the Avitech Product. Sometimes they eat eggs because they are infertile and in that case they push them out of the nest and then eat them when they break on the floor.
