Salmon Faverolle chicken

Hen Keeping Tips for September

  • Collect bracken and hang bunches to dry – it is a great source of free bedding for your coop.
  • Do not be tempted to overfeed hens with corn, as fat chickens will stop laying.
  • Make a health busting treat:
    • 1 cup each of rolled oats, wheat and sunflower seeds, plus 1 teaspoon each of brewers yeast, garlic and dried sea weed, combined with cod liver oil.
