The chickens were moved onto fresh pasture last Saturday. This always makes them very happy. It amazes me how fast they can demolish vegetation. We move their house once per week and they duly drop wonderful fertilizer over the ground to allow us to grow amazing vegetable and fruit crops.
Last week we gave the layer flock a probiotic addition to their diet for five days. The hope is that this will improve their digestion and they will recover their egg laying zeal. There really are special probiotic mixes for chickens. We needed 16lbs per day, thankfully they are less expensive than the capsules we buy for ourselves.
