In the Brooder
- Jun 14, 2009
Do to the responses of my lasts question I decided not to take the chance of my chickens getting out so I built a movable coup out of all 2X2 galvanized wire. It is a circle about 4' in diameter and today I put my 4 Bantam's in it. They are doing a great job taking care of my weeds and I figured I would just slide it over when it is bare dirt and have free weed removal. My question is with all these weeds available for them to eat should I still give them feed? Should I at least offer them feed every day? Or will the steady flow of weeds be enough food for them? I covered the top of the mobile coup to take care of the relentless sun we have here as well as put a waterer in with them, is there anything ells I missed? I don't have a spot for them to get up off the ground yet but its in the plan.
