Thank you to everyone who has been linking back to Homestead Revival, The Prairie Homestead, or New Life on a Homestead. It's like flying the colors of the homestead community and showing others the way to a great life living closer to the land!
Lisa at Fresh Eggs Daily shared an excellent post this week on Growing Sprouts for Your Chickens. Unless your "girls" get time to free range in a location that has green vegetation growing 365 days a year, they could really benefit from a dose of phytochemicals, chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, minerals... even proteins. Sprouting greens is a relatively simple solution you might want to try. I've done this and my chickens go WILD for it!
"If you have also been wondering what you can give to your chickens for healthy treats this winter when they can't get out to forage, and when produce is't plentiful, why not sprout some seeds or beans for them? It's inexpensive and gives the chickens much-needed nutrition when they can't be out eating grass and weeds."

If you've been a featured blogger on the Barn Hop, either today or in the past, we now have a special button for you should you wish to add it to your sidebar stating that you've been a featured blogger! You can find it on my button page by clicking the hen with the blue barn on my sidebar that says "HR Buttons". It's a good idea to link it back to the page where you were featured so your readers can see where you're actually mentioned. (These buttons do not have a code since it needs to be linked to the page you're featured in and it will change from week to week. Just copy the button or drag it to your desktop).
