Bone Broth Bones for Chickens and Puttering

Watering weeds

I put some water on my weeds today and moved the sprinkler around to lightly water them so they’ll grow for the chickens to eat.water

 

I didn’t have much energy today, likely because of all the rocks I moved yesterday and those logs weren’t too light either.

Bone broth

I  had cooked up some bone broth in my pressure cooker the other day from a couple of chicken’s I ate.

Here’s the pressure cooked bones of the two chicken’s I cooked. Cooking makes them softer.bones

 

I dumped them in the planter for the chickens and then stood back and watched.bucket

 

They were slow getting started on them.birds

 

But it wasn’t long before they discovered them.bird

 

And then they really went for them.eats

 

In a couple of hours most of those bones were gone.gone

 

Checking loquats

I took a look at my loquat tree to see if I had any fruit on them yet and I found quite a few fruits about a half inch in diameter so they have a ways to go before they get ripe.loquats

 

Carrots

When I was walking by the carrot patch I decided a couple of fresh carrots might be nice to snack on so I went into the carrot patch.patch

 

I pulled these two up and went over to wash them up and ate then while doing some chair hopping.carrots

 

The sun was out and it was a nice day so I mostly just puttered in the yard and chair hopped the day away.

Nice day.

    Amazing the way the chickens really went for the bones!
    Can you please share the procedure you used to do them up in the pressure cooker?
    High or low pressure and for how long?
    Thanks! Karen

      Hi Karen,
      I just put the bones in the pressure cooker and cook them for a little over two hours. It’s a high setting. I put everything in there from the chicken that I don’t eat and fill lit up to the line with water. You can just boil them too for a couple hours. I usually put an onion in there too. I use the broth to eat stuff, just adding stuff to it and also drink it like coffee with some onion powder and salt and pepper or whatever.
      I use chicken bones as that’s what I have but other bones work just as well as the cooking softens them up. Other bones have marrow in them which is even better as they have more goodies in them like bone marrow.

    Thanks Bob, I do make bone broth just about the same way. I usually go 2-3 hours on high pressure. Also, put a little bit of apple cider vinegar in there….they say it draws the nutrients from the bones.

    Yes, bone broth is wonderful to drink ….very nutritional . There’s nothing like the homemade stuff!
    Your carrots look pretty darn tasty.
