    Has anybody ever seen or tried anything like plenums and BCB/anoxic filtration like Kevin Novak PHD does on his youtube channel?

    A lot of his work focus on planted tanks.
    He drones on a bit so I struggle to finish his videos.

    In November I bought 6 silkie hens that were about 3 months old. They are amazing at getting rid of weeds and eating snails. My garden is looking better. Anyway, turns out 3 are roosters, and 1 of the 6 went missing between November and now. Suspect a cat or an owl, no carcass was ever found. About 3 weeks ago one of the hens started to sit on a dozen eggs, today I saw the first chick.

    Up to 7 chicks now. My sons actually watched one hatch, started with a tiny hole and over about 30 minutes it managed to egg-scape

    Just a pic of mom and some of the chicks. They are just starting to eat and drink now, still 4 eggs to hatch. Unfortunately 1 chick died during the night.

    I love his stuff, I currently head up product innovation so I have a lot of time where I don’t have to talk to people and I’m left alone in my own kitchen. The long talks or demos are right up my alley. There’s a few podcasts I enjoy to that go one for ages.

    would think if he went that much effort he could have bought a decent canister filter

    When you take a dog for a walk, the dog actually enjoys it.
    But fish?? Probably just stresses them :(
