The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

:shock: Really? Never heard of that, but then - not many acorns around here...

Do they manage whole acorns, or do you have to chop them up?

It happened to my brother's hens and the vet said it was a common occurrence after they eat acorns. As they were foraged, I guess they must eat them whole :shock:

Mine feast on olives - thankfully their yolks are bright orange not black or purple :iconbiggrin:
