With the price of everything rising, the chance to save money anywhere you can is tempting. We get asked often about mixing your own layer feed for your flock instead of buying commercial feed. It's not something I have ever done personally. Having a fairly small flock and a very convenient feed store has made it too easy to purchase feed.
A single photo can bring back a host of memories, even years later. Here are some memories in the making from last week on our farm...
Thanks for stopping by to visit with us this week. Join us on Facebook at Fresh Eggs Daily so you don't miss anything.

In a perfect world, your chickens would lay eggs in their nesting boxes each morning, you would collect them, bring them into the house and prepare them to eat. Mmmm, fresh eggs every day like clockwork!
As many of you know, we hatched our very first chicks this past spring. It was the most beautiful and truly awe-inspiring experience and I loved every minute of it. But of course hatching eggs can't be sexed, so I knew we would end up with some roosters. I didn't know we would end up with nine roosters...but I'm getting ahead of myself.
I've been trying to think of inexpensive, healthy treats for them since now with more than thirty chickens and ducks, it's just too expensive to buy them produce at the grocery store like I used to do when we only had eight. Turns out, sprouts are extremely nutritious and easy to grow.
