Day 66 - Chickens growing up
I thought you might be interested to see how our chickens are growing. We had 4 but the littlest one just curled up and died a few weeks ago.That made us very sad. After all the carting around we did during our fire evacuations - maybe that's what upset her.In his book The Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan describes how chickens - being moved around in an "Eggmobile" can contribute to an amazing cycle of fertilising and sanitising cow pastures (feeding on protein enriched grubs and insects)as well as producing delicious and nutritious eggs. I need to find some fresh cow patties!
