Hi! I'm getting chickens soon, researching their care, housing needs etc. I want to raise them the permaculture way, naturally, zero input, zero waste, sustainably. The cheap lazy way, the planet loves it! Reduce reuse recycle. I know a little already..like I don't want to be raking and shoveling, want them to work for me to do the weeding, so constantly rotate them. I know I want a movable chicken tractor, and I'll need a fixed coop as well to protect them from predators at night? I don't want to fence them a whole yard for that like a paddock. I want to use them in the entire yard where I want. I know they need nesting boxes but then I read you only need 1 nest box for 4 chickens, is that true? That can't be true..don't they sleep in those? I know I am asking silly questions, I'll learn lol. I don't know what sizes of anything I need yet for the 4 hens that I'm now allowed here in the city, since I will be rotating them and keeping them in a tractor a lot it's confusing me how much enclosed space they need. I don't plan to keep them free range at all, we have too many cats and dogs running lose in my neighborhood! I might take them out on occasion if they are that well behaved, when myself and others are standing guard over them, maybe with leashes on them so they don't run away! my daughter is going to crochet me leashes for them lol I know I want a natural ground system in their runs of course and a trench compost system for their food, I'm not going to buy them food or grain but feed them from compost and what I grow..I know I want to use my own leaves and grasses like lemon grass from my yarden for their bedding as opposed to buying straw, etc. I'm looking for any and all advice on saving money and naturally keeping chickens, how to keep them healthy naturally. I know clean, ventilated, and clean water is #1 Any and all comments are most appreciated. Thanks!
