If you keep your chooks in a permanent run now is a good time to have a bit of a clean up before winter. Rake any leaves or other organic debris and put on compost. Sprinkle garden lime at a rate of one handful per metre around the ground of the run. This will freshen the soil and prevent smells. It will not harm your chooks.
This breed is known as the Easter egg chicken. It lays blue or green tinted eggs. This breed originated from Chile. It is a small chook which makes it perfect for foraging around a small town garden. They could never join Mensa as they have a tendency to be a bit air-headed and be scatty. They lay 150-200 blue or green tinted eggs each year which are perfectly edible. If you want something a bit different this may be the chook for you.
While you are spreading some garden lime around your chicken coop give a handful to your worm farm. The lime will balance the ph and keep your worms smiling!
