No chickens yet, but decided to build a coop and get chickens early this spring. Will likely couple the activity with rebuilding a large worm box or two.
The birds will probably like the wiggly treats, and the worms can multiply rapidly in the chicken enriched leaf mold to be placed in their box and in the compost bin.
The chickens can't roam the yard because of the dogs, cats, hawks, and racoons. But this 10 foot by 24 foot pen is a little over 6 feet tall. It should provide ample room for 3-6 chickens that will eventually live there. I also intend to build a few small portable pens. Those will be placed over certain bed areas or directly over composting leaves. The chickens will be able to scratch for extra food and their dropping will go directly where needed as the pens get rotated from location to location.
