Chickweed (Stellaria media) grows in slightly disturbed places, such as your garden, fallow fields, the edge of pathways and trails, or under greenhouse benches. You probably will not find very much of it near any occupied hen house though, because chicks love it! However, once you learn why, you may decide to grow chickweed for chickens!

Beekeeping comes with one little setback- the stings! Sure, we do our best to avoid getting stung, because once one of the bees stings us, she will die. And, yes, getting stung hurts! In general, bees are very passive and non-aggressive. Many a gardener has tended to their flowers alongside foraging bees. Bees are not inherently dangerous or seek out victims, and only sting when provoked or defending their hive. #homesteading #backyard #backyardfarm #bees Chickens, Poultry, Guineas & Fowl Fitness, Vogue, Maxis, Allergic Reaction, Allergic, Wasp Stings, Bee Sting

If you have chickens, the unfortunate reality is that at some point, they will die. But what happens if one dies young, or several birds die in succession? Maybe you suspected it was an illness that ultimately brought your beloved birds demise. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what caused your loss(es) to prevent them in the future? Consider sending the bird to your local laboratory for a necropsy, or chicken autopsy, which is a cause of death report. #poultry Chickens, Guineas, Poultry & Fowl Bird, Nice, Chicken, Animal Disease, Fowl, Hobby Farms, Birds

When raising chicks for the first time, there is a lot to learn and it can quickly become overwhelming. A common question I am asked, & one that I had when I first raised chicks, was “Should I should use medicated chick starter?”. If you have tried looking this up before you may have been left even more confused than when you started. Hopefully, this will help clarify the difference between the two so you can make an educated decision about what is best for you.Chickens, Guineas, Poultry & Fowl Inspiration, Urban, Free Range Chickens
