Re: Can I feed chickens parsnip foliage?

They pecked at it once or twice then turned their beaks up, so "No" it seems...

Re: Winemaking Parts 1 + 2 + 3

Thanks for doing this MKG - you inspired me to start brewing wine and much good fun I've had mucking around. I've had some success using jam rather than fruit teabags...

Can I feed chickens parsnip foliage?

Hey,

I'm just about to harvest last autumn's parsnips. They have plenty of healthy foliage. Can the chicks eat this? I've read that parsnip foliage can irritate skin, so thought I'd check.

cheers for any help.

Re: Please tell me the truth...

They both look great.

Also, I remember there was a guy about 7-8 years ago that used to wander up and down Mill Road with, I swear, a loaf of bread on his head (he used a belt buckled under his chin to secure it). So what do you have to lose!

For the first time I'm brewing this in one of those plastic pressure barrels (with the lid unscrewed to prevent an explosion!) - the cunning plan being to ...

Re: How do i write a decent CV?

I interview people as part of my job. My opinions... The purpose of your cv is to get you an interview, that's all.

Re: Mucky hen bottoms

Do they have a spot to dust-bathe? My two seem to take care of themselves nicely in an odd corner of a border.
