Tip of the month

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Your Poultry -

It’s im­por­tant to en­sure your flock al­ways has ac­cess to plenty of fresh, cool wa­ter in a clean con­tainer over the sum­mer months. If a chicken’s in­take of wa­ter is de­creased, its feed in­take will also de­crease. This can lead to a re­duc­tion in egg pro­duc­tion. It’s also im­por­tant to make sure that chickens have shaded ar­eas on hot days.
