Recently my friend David was telling me that a good way to help chickens obtain more calcium is to give them the extra goat milk that we don't use. Well, this has turned out to be some very wonderful advice because some days we have quite a lot more milk than we can use. Not only have the chickens begun to look forward to their milk treat, but as an added bonus their egg production has gone up by about 20% and their feed costs have gone down by about 20%.
It is a win win all the way around.
