Put those birds to work!

Did you know your chickens can work for you?  Pick a spot you intend to garden and fill it with dead leaves, compost, etc. Turn your chickens out and sprinkle some feed on that patch of land.  Your birds will scratch and dig happily for hours, shredding the leaves, aerating the compost, and depositing and working into the soil their droppings which are rich in nutrients your plants will need soon!

Here, my birds are working a spot by the garage where I intend to grow wildflowers and tomatoes this summer. You can see how well they’re turning that dirt over!
