Recently we’ve finally been able to let the chickens free range. They are all laying in their nest boxes, and have been for a month or so, so out they go! They love foraging, and picking through the manure under the rabbit cages, so many worms in there. This should also help with feed costs, not to mention they are getting greater diversity in their diet 🙂
Since we are on the subject of diet, I have recently began supplementing their food by fermenting a good deal of it. This has huge health benefits for them, and can save us tons on the feed bill.
Will write more about it after I get us fed.
