Good and helpful chickens!!

Recommended Posts

I have now been composting for nearly a year and have a fine big wooden box full of lovely stuff, liberally laced with chicken poo.


The problem has always been what to do with the persistent perennial weeds I pull up and now I've got the perfect solution - put them into the hens' fenced off run and they'll shred 'em! I've put loads in and they just whittle them down into nothing. Good, good chickens!!

and they clean up those sluggy, snail-infested flowerpots that have been lurking in a damp corner somewhere.


I like to think of my chickens as sort of organic mixers/filters. You put slugs, snails, weeds and the odd treat/layer pellet in at one end, and the other end produces lovely organic eggs and smashing compost! :lol:
