Ever thought of getting backyard chickens to augment your sustainable lifestyle? Ever wondered if they smell, or attract vermin? Not sure if they are right for you.
Well, let me help you out. Let me introduce you to the way of the chicken!
I have over 6 years of experience with backyard chooks, and during this episode I step you through our decision process when we first decided to get chickens, way back in 2008.
I also talk about how I build our first chook house from second-hand materials, our first flock, and a fair bit about chicken hygiene.
During the episode I mentioned the following links;
- Chicken Day; the video I made on the day I brought home our first flock of chooks
- How to remove scaly leg mites; the Greening of Gavin’s most popular blog post
- The Way of the Chicken eBook; My second eBook about keeping backyard chickens in the burbs (scroll down to the second book).
