I am constantly tempted to feed our chickens table scraps. I hate throwing things in the trash, so it seems logical to me that I can divert some of our half-eaten meals to the ladies in the backyard. However, I can never remember what is on the “no” list. Since I can’t remember, they wind up with nothing, and my two year old’s unfinished food goes into the trash most days.
Everything is available on the internet, but pulling up a web page after every meal to check the list isn’t going to happen. I finally resolved to put up a list by the back door with all the banned chicken items on it. Yay for organization! When I couldn’t find a cute graphic with the list on it (because a plain list on lined paper just isn’t my style), I decided to make one. I thought I’d share it, in case anyone else is as crazy, borderline obsessive organized as I am.
You can either right click it and save it to your computer, right click and print it, or you can left click it and go to Photobucket where there are more options.
*EDIT* 1/22/2016 Thank you to all the visitors who discovered my blog through Pinterest! Since you may or may not be familiar with the rest of my blog, I’d like to say a couple of things here to familiarize you with who I am.
My family and I are amateur backyard farmers. Mostly, I have spent time learning how to garden in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona; we’ve also dabbled in raising chickens. I spent time researching prior to raising our birds, including visiting websites, talking with others who were raising birds, talking to the staff at our local feed store, and reading books from the library. The information on this list is an accumulation of my own personal research. I am not a professional chicken farmer, nor do I pretend to have all the answers. I recommend you do your own research in multiple venues before embarking on the journey of homesteading, raising livestock, or homeschooling your children.
This blog is my way of reaching out to others who may be starting out with either urban homesteading or homeschooling; thank you again for visiting!
