    I'm waiting on spring but I'm getting ready to start some plants and plan the garden.Number one is figuring how to keep the geese from eating it this year-the "weeder geese" are a myth.Mine ignored the weeds and ate my plants,except for the asparagus I planted last year.

    I'm not sure but I would keep them in close quarters(limited movement) and feed them table scraps and bread,along with their feed.Think about how people get fat-eating a lot and no exercise.Good luck with your project!!!

    My plants so far: Not a whole lot to see. The black will be empty and I'll be planting along the outer border.

    I ordered 3 bare root roses . Can't live without a rose bush!

    I played it safe and went with roadside daylilies, and one red one. Got one lavender plant for a test run. I broke down and bought 3 rose bushes.

    I have heard that back in the 'old days' they would fatten them on bread and milk - I didn't think chickens digested milk tho'.

    The bread and milk isn't used in commercial chicken production or as most would say"factory farms",but is used by some backyard/country flocks and also in designer label chicken meat.

    Do you have them in a small pen,restricting movement?Running around burns calories.If they can't move much and just lay there,eating,they'll get fat.No matter how you feed them.
