Here is a link to our latest YouTube on how to clean out your chicken pen.
We think that at least every 3 months chicken pens need a good clean. We move the chickens out for the day while we clean their house. We remove the items from the pen. Remove the old bedding, spray with Malidson 50, dust with disinfectant powders. We then replace bedding, perches (which we dust for mutes) and return feeders nesting boxes and water.
We have just published our page on of the pluses and minuses of hybrids and pure breed chickens. We think that both have a place in the backyard flock, particularly of you want year round eggs. Have a read for yourself:
We have available some beautiful hybrid & pure breed chickens for giving this Christmas if you would like to add to your flock, start a flock or gift someone. We sell all the supplies that you would need for your chickens (except the coop) and are about in the next few weeks to help.
Also available we have a great range of egg baskets and egg spirals. Priced between $12-$50 these are great gift idea for the chicken enthusiast in your life.
