So – you’ve got chickens and have noticed that they peck and scratch everything. We call them our “volunteer gardeners” because we don’t ask them to garden, they just do it. They eat plants that chickens don’t like (jade plants!) and can’t be good for them. We tried penning ours up with a bird cloth run, and they spent the first morning just looking (and finding) a way under it. What’s a responsible chicken keeper to do? Entertain them with enrichment in their run. Keep them busy so they…

Decorating the chicken coop

The mobile chicken coop is almost finished. I spent most of yesterday trying to make it comfortable for my feathered friends, installing perches and nesting boxes. I had to shoo them out so I could work without them freaking out every time I moved here or there. First job was to install perches.
