The chickens love their treats...and I love giving them lettuce that I don't want to eat, as the slugs attacked these poor plants mercilessly for months. I handpicked so many slugs off I dream about the nasty things at night sometimes. I'm sure the rain washed all the snail trail goo off, but I still don't think I can actually put it in my mouth. sigh. Maybe fresh lettuce for me in the fall, then. Hopefully all the slugs will be chicken feed by then.
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
