Chickens

Heres a few photos of the chickens at Kelmarna, Im getting some chickens on sunday which I'm quite looking forward too. I'm trying to get a coop and enclosure built in time, its going to be attatched to my hot house to provide Co2 and heat to the growing seedlings. The manure will be a welcome kickstart to the garden and the chickens will hopefully eat some of the weeds and kitchen waste we currently produce.

Getting chickens and turning the family pool into a pond are two of the big steps I've been meaning to take towards turning the property into a demonstration site. The garden is looking really good at the moment and we eat something from it almost every day. The weeds have begun to take off as spring begins though meaning weeding has become a fornightly job.
