Great idea with the cabbage, egrogan. I've got one now sitting in the fridge that I didn't need so it will now be gifted to the chickens.
I am toying with the idea of getting some chicks this year. The place I get the babies from has a minimum order of 10 for the 'fancy' breeds (ie the non egg factories) so it would be that many if I commit to it. I really did want to get a new coop built and realistically that probably wouldn't happen until after the chick order needs to be in so I'm currently in a pickle about what to do.
