Even free ranging chickens do better with a fenced area. Predators are an issue. You can get cheap roll fencing or make a second tractor for the chickens. Still you need to supplement their diet but that's pretty insignificant.
I have a plan. 😉
Is it a plan where you think ahead about the risks to the animals and prevent them with a big button like a fence?

How many eggs are your chickens producing?
Zero.  as I said, I don't like my system.
Huh? I thought you said you have a bunch of chickens. I missed the zero eggs part. We're they all pullets this last summer?

In my quest for adequate Vitamin D intake ...

Quote
Since the vitamin D group of activators is absent from nearly all plant products but must be synthesized in animal bodies from the plant foods, where it is largely stored in organs, an adequate source had to be provided. The Indians of the highlands of Peru maintained colonies of guinea pigs which were used in their stews. The ancient burials also show that the guinea pig was a common source of food since mummified bodies of this animal were found. This is significant since of all the animals that are used for experimental work the guinea pig is probably the most efficient in synthesizing vitamin D from plant foods. They are very hardy. They live on a great variety of green plant foods and twigs and are very prolific. They apparently played a very important part in the physical excellence of the ancient cultures.

Forget the rabbits ... let's raise GUINEA PIGS!!!!
I've been telling you this for years.

One of my goals for the upcoming year is to do some mineral  analysis of my pasture grasses and my milk and my grass fed beef to try to get a handle on all of that.
Just like several years ago it was one of your goals to pursue the helium/zircon research project! :thumbsup:

How did that work out?

And to check the cross matching on Ferguson's dendro sequence. I even got him the data nad the software and showed him how to use it. But he doesn't check on things he doesn't really want to know the answer to.

Price says "primitive man" is the control.  p. 871

Evidence that nutrition is the best means of preventing dental caries? As opposed to things like good dental hygiene ... or fluoride treatments etc?

Price gives abundant evidence. One that sticks out in particular is LV vs. St Moritz. I covered that one already. Did you miss that?
Apparently, you missed pingu's response.

Alabama Demands Voter ID-Then Closes Driver's License Offices In Black Counties
Quote
What happens when a state with a tough voter ID law suddenly makes it much harder for minorities to get driver's licenses? We are about to find out in Alabama.

Facing a budget crisis, Alabama has shuttered 31 driver's license offices, many of them in counties with a high proportion of black residents. Coming after the state recently put into effect a tougher voter ID law, the closures will cut off access -- particularly for minorities -- to one of the few types of IDs accepted.

According to a tally by AL.com columnist John Archibald, eight of the 10 Alabama counties with the highest percentage of non-white registered voters saw their driver's license offices closed.

"Every single county in which blacks make up more than 75 percent of registered voters will see their driver license office closed. Every one," Archibald wrote.

How is it possible to be this dense, Dave? How can you not see what she is saying?
I see EXACTLY what she's saying.

And it's arrogant misleading bullshit.

No, it isn't. You just don't like where it is leading you.

This could be a pivotal moment for you, Dave. Understand what Pingu has said and you will have come along way towards understanding rigorous scientific procedures as opposed to someone's earnest, bias-tainted convictions.
Lol.

No it isn't,  therefore no you don't.

"I already addressed this, Dave.

"The thing you mentioned" was a "Price diet".  And your claim (not Price's claim incidentally) is that IF you eat a Price diet THEN EVEN IF you also eat sugary sticky snacks AND have a mouth full of acid-secreting bacteria you STILL won't get dental caries."

No you have not addressed it. Or else I missed it.

 you're right that price did not make that claim directly, but he performed experiments demonstrating it to be true.
Experiments do not demonstrate something to be true, they demonstrate it to not be falsified by the experiment.  All none some ... science only does all none in reverse.

"The direct role of sugar in lowering pH to demineralisation levels does not seem to have occurred to him."

The fact that you think this shows that you have not even so much as bothered to read his book, so as far as I'm concerned you are a liar when you say that you've read Price.

You are completely and hilariously out to lunch when you say that this idea did not occur to price ... he performed experiments proving that the acid has no effect if the nutrition is adequate, particularly calcium and phosphorus and vitamins A&D.
Why do I get the feeling that you are wrong about this? Hmm. Davehastobewrongism? Or, once bitten, twice shy?

TR Embassy and Animal Shelter / Re: The Cat Thread
My cat isn't well :(

Off his feed, and yowling.  I took him to the vet, who did a blood test and said he's mostly fine except his white count is up and his teeth are not in good shape.

An antibiotic seems to have cheered him up, but he's still yowling.  At least he ate some dinner.

He's 16.  I think this may be the beginning of the end :(
Sorry. Damnit, we know we will likely outlive them but the reality of that isn't any better because it's reality.

I had diva dead to rights and you guys were a bunch of dumbtards, just FYI.
What tipped you off?

It's clear you don't understand.

Also, point out a single case of gmo tech actually being better for people than the non gmo alternatives. Yellow rice is awesome.  Why isn't it being planted again? Science as a religion is disturbing.

NEITHER toddler group should get dental caries ...

IF NUTRITION IS ADEQUATE

Don't you think that many a toddler fell asleep while nursing it's mother in all these indigenous groups that Price visited?  Yet virtually no dental caries.

Why are you unable to think of these simple things yourself?  What is wrong with your thinking?  You have some sort of hellacious mental block.
It's almost like the toddlers in those groups don't even need to lose their baby teeth!
