chooks and manure

Recommended Posts

The new residents have taken a considerable liking to the rotted horse manure that we placed round our fruit trees

I'm hoping they are just foraging for insects and not eating the stuff :vom:

They are only 20 weeks old but do you think I ought to consider worming them already because of it?

:lol: ...... typical chooks .... probably just getting the good tasting bugs out of the manure. They are still young, and if from a reputable breeder, if not OMLET, they should be fully wormed/vaccinated to date. If you are concerend about constant "feeding" in the area, could you put some roll of mesh/wire aound the heap and secure from their beaks :wink:
