If you have the good fortune of living in a rural area, you’re probably accustomed to sharing your space with a variety of critters. Topping the list could be the very common, unwelcome guests – mice. While they are far less of a threat to your flock than predatory coyotes or a sly fox, they’re not ideal candidates for your chickens to socialize with either. There are multiple reasons to kick them out of the coop - leaving messes, carrying diseases, and breaking into their feed are just a few. Avoid the escapable sticky traps, toxic poisons, and other means of dangerous extermination by trying Fresh Cab in your coop, available at Orscheln Farm & Home. Simply hang Fresh Cab in and around the coop to begin controlling the problem immediately, then replace every month or so for long-lasting results.
I thought for years it would be silly to use a solar fencer when it's so easy to simply plug it in. Then I had a reason to need fencing in a remote location that had NO electric power anywhere close. I wasn't sure what I would do till I remembered those "silly" solar fencers.
Our co-worker Kristee had birds in her garden and wrote this blog article to tell us how to keep them out. You might have the same problem so this could save your produce.
Spring cleaning was in the air and our next guest blogger was determined to clean her shower door. It turned out to be easier than she thought. Felicia Baker is an employee at the home office and shared this story with us:
This story was written by our fellow employee Becky about her own experience with a home fire.
We had camped in an awesome spot by the beautiful clear Jacks Fork River in south Missouri many times. We had a nice living quarters horse trailer that had a 40 gallon water tank. When you have a couple of people taking showers that doesn't last very long.
When my husband announced we would have a garden a couple years ago I was less than enthused. I grew up helping in the garden and memories popped up in my mind of huge baskets of green beans to break and tubs of corn to husk. Standing in a hot kitchen all day canning produce was not my idea of fun. I was not quick to point this out to the budding gardener however as I thought maybe the garden wouldn't actually "flourish". I should have known as with most things my spouse decides to do it produced an abundant harvest. Thanks honey!
