Thinking chickens

We want to put some chooks on our farm, to embrace some permaculture principles – hens can feed on the insects and pests in the orchard and dig up weeds for us and lay us some eggs! Sounds good huh. So we need to learn about keeping chooks.

Maybe we’ll start with a chicken tractor – a henhouse on wheels – so we can move it around the farm.
