Raise Happy, Healthy Backyard Chickens With Purina® Organic Poultry Feed – Experimental Homesteader Animal Husbandry

 

This post has been sponsored by Purina Animal Nutrition, as such I received free product from Purina to share my opinion with my readers. However, my opinions are based on my individual and unique experience. Based on my experience in 2016 I believe this line of feed has been amazing for my flock and I encourage you to try it too!

Even though my flock varies in size from the four hens and three turkeys I currently raise up to 150 different types of chickens, turkeys, peacocks and gunieas, I consider myself a backyard chicken owner as this is a hobby instead of business for me. I spend a lot of time with my flock getting to know them and their individual personalities. I even give them names. The health and happiness of my flock matters and this is why I was thrilled to learn about the new line of Purina® Organic Poultry Feed. Raising my flock on organic grains and was my first choice years ago when I started keeping poultry – but let’s face it, organic chicken feed was hard to find back then. Purina is a well-known brand that has been nourishing flocks for more than 80 years. I was super excited to find out that my local Tractor Supply can order it so getting the Purina® Organic Poultry Feed locally is hassle-free. It makes me feel good to know I am feeding my poultry the best product around and that the eggs and meat they produce for my table is organic. This is very important to me and my family.

Food Preservation Ideas – Fall Through Spring – Experimental Homesteader Food Preservation

 

Just because it’s not the main garden season doesn’t mean you can’t preserve food. In fact the off-season is an ideal time to prepare items such as breads, pastas, desserts and use up those little bits of fruits, meats and vegetables in your freezer by dehydrating them, turning them into soups, stews or adding them to recipes that you can eat right away or preserve for later use.

Maintaining A Compost Heap – Experimental Homesteader Exotic Gardening Thoughts

 

Isn’t it time to stop wasting precious natural resources and find a better, more environmentally friendly way to garden? For those of you that said yes, that means it is time to begin maintaining a compost heap right in your own backyard. Many people have a large amount of organic waste such as grass clippings, weeds, leaves, dead plants, kitchen scraps and livestock manure. Unfortunately, many waste money and time having these materials transported to a landfill. It isn’t just a waste of good compost; it’s a waste of everything that goes into the process of transporting it  – the garbage man’s time, the money you pay for the removal, etc. – not to mention it adds to the materials in the landfill – and many are already being shut down because they are too full or close to being shut down.

How To Make A Clawdeen Cake - Experimental Homesteader Elegant Cooking

How To Make A Clawdeen Cake – Experimental Homesteader Elegant Cooking

 

My granddaughter Trinity is really into Monster High. This year that was the theme she wanted for her birthday. I spent some time looking around both online and in local stores for a Clawdeen cake pan but was unable to find one. Wilton did however sell a Classic Wonder Mold Cake Pan which was meant to make Barbie or other doll cakes using a doll pick for the top of the body and shoulders. I looked at the pan and figured I could improvise by making the hole in the center a little larger and inserting a Clawdeen doll. I bought the cake pan and decided to give a go. Here is how I made a Clawdeen Cake – and if you follow these simple instructions you too can make a Clawdeen cake for your Monster High fan! Click Here To Read More -

My granddaughter Alivia’s first birthday is one short month away. Alivia loves monkey’s – and I was all prepared to use my Cricut and my 72-hour free trial of the Cricut Image Library that I received by buying another Cricut cartridge to cut out monkeys for her party when my daughter said she wanted a jungle theme. I did some online research to find out what cartridges had jungle animals since I did not see a cartridge that was exclusively jungle animals. Create-A-Critter and Create-A-Critter 2 were the two that I ended up using. I made lions, elephants, giraffes, vines and of course monkeys! However what’s a party without photo booth props, right? I used the Photo Booths Props Cartridge to create some awesome props that the kids – both young and old – that attend the party can use for some cool photos. Click Here To Read More -

Behind The Scenes Survival Diary For March 28

Behind The Scenes Survival Diary For March 28

This morning I woke up to the sound of heavy rain on our homestead. The last two days have been really nice and we have got a lot of yard work done so I guess the rain should be a welcome change and will certainly help the new trees we planted to settle into their homes. It is always better as far as I am concerned to have the rain do the work of watering in the plants. I think the plants perform better and certainly the watering is deeper than what I would manage to do with a hose. Click Here To Read More -

Spring is upon us once again and there is lots of activity on the homestead already this season! I can’t believe how early the bulbs are blooming this year compared to last year. It is just the end of March. The crocus are almost done blooming, daffodils are just beginning and primrose are in full bloom. The garden is looking good although it still has a way to go before it is the beautiful masterpiece that I imagine it will be someday. Click Here To Read More -

Just One More Greenhouse - Please - Experimental Homesteader Exotic Gardening Thoughts

Just One More Greenhouse – Please – Experimental Homesteader Exotic Gardening Thoughts

As anyone who owns a greenhouse – or coldframe – or tunnel house – knows, there is always a desire to have just a little more growing space. Some seeds need cold stratification to germinate, some seeds need heat to germinate. Some seeds can take two to three years to germinate – and the list goes on. Having different growing houses setup to accomadate the different propagation needs  or growing requirements the seeds or plants you are working with need is ideal – however not everyone has this much space, time or money to invest.

Sheri Ann Richerson from ExperimentalHomesteader.com is joined by Jeffrey Rhoades to talk about and test the Leader Accessories Compound Crossbow that she received for review.This is my second crossbow from Leader Accessories. This is my first one that is a compound crossbow. It does require some assembly out of the box but the strings on the bow are already in place so you don’t need to worry about that. It comes with a quiver, padded sling, 4 20″ aluminum arrows, rail lube wax, a 4×32 Aluminum Scope and a cocking rope – so you can assemble it and use it right away without needing any additional equipment other than a backstop if you are not hunting game.
