1. Here in Tucson, about the only way you can grow them is in a controlled environment. I tried growing them
in the soil here, and they were salty instead of sweet!
2. That I am not sure of, but we have naturally very alkaline soil here. If I put vinegar on the native soil it will fizz up!
It is pouring down rain here in Tucson, so I went and pulled the tarp over the run to help the chickens not get wet..
While there, I just for grins opened the egg box... and I had two eggs! My Black Australorps are the only ones with red combs and waddles so, I assume they are the ones that...
Glad you can have chickens again! :woot

Yeah.... NO.... I'd like to keep my...
I am now able to have chickens again! But since Cherokee wasn't raised with them, I have had a time

October 28th is Cherokee's Birthday! He has slowed way down on his growth. But he is plenty big! He got weighed at the Vet's office today, 105.8lbs. At his first birthday he weighed about 112.5lbs But with our summers, dogs like him don't go out and do much during the daytime. He is good about...
Whenever we had leftover meat scraps, I freeze them in small amounts on a cookie sheet. And then store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Then I can add one to Cherokee's dinner each night.
I got the series of photos above while doing this. Cherokee was so funny... He wouldn't touch any...
