Back Yard Chickens in the Suburbs
Creating a fully supporting eco system using chickens as a large part of that function can be extremely rewarding.
These wonderful creatures are fertilising machines, weed eating trojans and bug busters. They scratch leaf out to the edges of pathways for you to easily pick up, at the same time destroying bug infestations.
Grazing the lawn. I have a 30sqm lawn out the back and we have only needed to mow it once in 2 months and is now looking a deeper green from their poop.
My Children adore having these feather friends follow them around the garden and teaching them their names. We are now really looking foward to those very tasty free range eggs.
