Re: Eye Injury

How do you bathe her eye? Is there any specific salt I should add?

Eye Injury

Hi All,

I have some friends who own a RIR hen whose eye was injured. She was fine the night before, but the next morning her eye was 'pushed' in and and had a little scar under it. The eye itself is still there but she won't open it. Is there any possible way to treat it?

Re: Chicken feed formula?

Thank you for the recipe!

My birds range from just starting to lay to 5 years old. We also hatch some chicks every once in awhile, do you have any good chick feed formulas?

Could it be that the oats can expand too much in the chicken's crops? CC

Re: Chicken feed formula?

The peanut skins are the red inner skins of the actual nut. They are 84% protein and 16% fat. They do free range, but it doesn't seem as if they get enough protein out of the insects and their other findings. So are would your (Margaid's) earlier mentioned recipe work with only a substitute with pea...

Re: Chicken feed formula?

Hi All,

Sorry for getting back to you so late!

Sorry for the name mistake! I live in southwestern U.S..

Would a equal mixture of oats, wheat, cracked corn, barley and peanut skins work? -CC

Re: Chicken feed formula?

Thank you Marigold! Only I have one problem, I can't get micronized peas anywhere I know of. Would the red peanut skins work as a source for protein? -CC

Re: Chicken Coffee Chaff Bedding

Howdy, Thanks for the link, Margaid. By the way, here are three links for y'all over the big pond for coffee roasting plants (don't know if they're going to be very useful, hope they will though): http://www.coffee.uk.com/index.php?main_page=contact_us http://extractcoffee.co.uk/contact-us/ http://i...
