Our chicken coop has become a home to more than just rare breed Chanteclaire chickens. There are also a few critically endangered Beltsville Small White Turkeys as well as two ducklings.
As the weather warms up, I`ll be sure to add photos of the manure pile. An important part of raising poultry and horses is the element of composting their manure. The composted manure is spread on the gardens, boosting the fertility as well as microbial populations which can work symbiotically with vegetable plant growth.
