Hello, I have read books on chickens and there are some good ones but I have read things here that I have never seen in any books. People here have extensive experience and wisdom on the subject of raisiing chickens. I would like to ask people to share something they have learned or experienced that maybe they have not seen in a book. Something that is maybe unusual or even too obvious to talk about. I'll start by sharing a trick that I use with my chickens. They have a large free range area. Of course the part near the house they have stripped bare. I like to let them out of the fenced area into the yard but they tend to go to far and end up out in the woods. My trick is to let them out an hour before their usual bed time. They stay close to home and spend the time feeding on grass etc untill they go into their coop and then I close the fence again. This doesn't sound like much but it greatly helps me to get them to eat extra greens. So, I'd love to hear what others are doing.
