TIPS FOR WINTER
Autumn is here ... and now is the time to prepare for winter.
Durham Hens offers these tips: “If you have a wooden coop, give it a coat of preservative to help it through the winter months. A good clean of your coop gives you the chance to check it over and make any repairs that are needed. If you don’t think it will last another year, replace it now. Also take time to check out your hens. They find winter stressful too. Treat them for worms and external parasites if they haven’t been done for a while. A little mixed corn as a treat and a splash of poultry tonic in their water will help them when it gets colder.” MORE: www.durhamhens.co.uk/
