I like to give my backyard chickens plenty of room to move about in but there are a couple of downsides to letting them free range throughout the whole yard. I’m going to use my skills as a Permaculture Designer to create a chicken friendly yard for them!
Culling chickens may be unthinkable to some urban homesteaders who view their flock as pets and part of the family. Find out why we decided to kill a chicken from our small backyard flock. This post does not show any killing or processing of animals. It talks about the killing process and why we culled a bird. Reader discretion is advised.
Today I have a special guest post by Gabrielle Yoder from ChickenCoopGuides.com.
Chickens can experience many different health problems in the winter if their keeper does not keep a close eye on their behavior and habitat. You can keep healthy winter chickens by taking a few simple steps before cold weather sets in and then following through on different strategies as the season progresses.
Winter’s coming and you need to winterize the chicken coop. The days may still be blazing hot and sunny but winter is coming and it’s coming fast!
My trees are dumping leaves and making a yellow, brown and red crunchy carpet on the ground which provides me hours of cardio raking them up. The winds are picking up and temperatures are dropping at night so it’s time to start looking at winterizing the chicken coop.
And I’m going to show you how to do it for FREE, yes for free!
