DIY Cabinet Incubator - I see cabinets come up on Craigslist for free all the time. I think I might pick up the next one I see and build this for when we get low on chickens, lol.
45 lb millet, 27 lb safflower seed, 20 lb sunflower, 8lbflax, total 100 lbs approx. 15-18% protein. This will last 2-3 months for 6 hens and should be supplemented with pasture & oyster shells....
I think this is pretty wonderful that a little girl from this era would have parents allowing her photo (rare in those days) and be allowed to have her pet chicken in it, too! She's darling and could care less about her part in the picture..how sweet.
