Liittle big present for my hens

in #homesteading2 years ago

My friend has 100 hectares of land used for arable land. This year, a good harvest of wheat was harvested from these hectares. Not very big, because the wheat was grown without any fertilizers and pesticides, but still good. And of course I got a certain amount - 1 ton :)


We gave wheat to the hens, as the main feed, but I had only 1 bucket, which quickly ran out. Summer birds enough food without wheat, but winter is already close, so I decided to stock up on grain and here such gift.


According to my calculations, for 10 hens (I plan to increase the number from 3 to 10) would be enough 300 kg of grain for whole winter, but 1000 kg is also good :)


Honestly, I have never seen such a quantity of grain, and of course I never dragged as many bags of wheat. And although my friend helped me, but the back the next day made itself felt.


But the hens are content, and I can rest assured of their winter sustenance. Remained only do winter option chicken coop, and the my A-frame not very suited for this.


You also have ample wheat for your own consumption. I doubt that the hens and the family will use up a 1000 Kg over winter, that is a solid amount.

I also doubt it. I did not hope on such an amount, but better more than less, and most importantly, it's all free :)

Free is most often the BEST price, but there can be caveats that need to be remembered. I have gotten a lot of free grain over the years but have had the major issue of keeping it clean, dry, free of vermin and not in my way constantly. Best I have been able to do is 50 gal drums with lids, that manages to keep things the longest for me.

They will be happy to have a lot of foods. hehe..thanks for sharing with us, @astrizak.

Looks big present for me! Indeed.
