Chickens Tractoring

We now have 4 hilarious chickens.

Suzie Creamcheese, Anne Frank, Frida Kahlo and Marie Antoinette. 

We lost Melody Nelson. Fox.

The four are living in some sort of poultry paradise. This week they have been given a new task of mowing down the “green manure” planted in BCDEF 1-10. That’s 50 sq metres of munching.

2 down and 48 to go. The plan is for them to eat all this and give us eggs and poo. They eat creepy crawlies too.

The “cleared” patch can be developed in a number of ways. Today I had no imagination so I just took off the food scraps and puffed up the corner, which was a little compacted, and threw Lucerne plus some mushroom compost on there.


Then I covered it with recycled dam lining plastic. We shall give it a few weeks rest and see where we are.
