Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Winter is setting in.....

Well the chickens are 1/2 time laying, and they aren't a year old yet.  Of the 7 chickens, 3 polish and 4 aurcanas chickens, I am getting 2 green eggs per day.  I read an article on my friend's blog:  I posted a comment that I am thinking the shortage is due to the lack of light.  Chickens need 12 - 14 hours of light in order to lay.  I am going to let my chickens continue to rest and molt, and put a light bulb on a timer in their house in Jan or Feb.  I am thinking I should be able to get a outdoor timer pretty cheap.  I had seen they are selling them for Christmas decorations. 

Sorry, but I am going to add that if they don't start laying regular, we will cull the flock.  For many years I had issues with eating my chickens.  They have been like pets.  Now with this corn allergy I am looking at them more as food/meat.  Its very hard to find uncontaminated meat.  The meat industry has become so unsafe.  I think due to their size, and greediness that they wash all the meat with citric acid made from corn.  Therefore I now need to look at my chickens as roasters!  Breaded and fried.  Again sorry if that sounds sick, but I really need to change my mindset.
