Chickens are a wonderful addition to just about any homestead. They are suited to even the smallest of yards. We have a small flock of five chickens, which provide us the most delicious fresh eggs, turn our compost, as well as giving us great garden fertiliser. Chickens are pretty low maintenance and require very little effort for the wonderful returns they provide. They just need secure housing to protect them from predators, clean water, and some food daily. We tend to feed our chickens plenty of kitchen scraps and some leafy greens from the garden, plus a bit of commercial feed…
