Your daily routine with your hens
Your chickens will honour you with a beautiful egg each day. In return, at the very least, you need to do them the honour of a visit each day:
- Bring them food.
- Add gravel and oyster shells, as needed.
- Provide fresh water.
- Collect the excrement in the nest with a small scoop.
- Collect the eggs from the nest.
Remember that a clean and well-maintained chicken coop:
- Avoids odours,
- Keeps your chickens in good health,
Limits eventual visits from clever predators.
During the winter season, there are a few other things that are important to think about. Read more here.
Admit it. It isn’t doesn’t take much to get your chickens clucking with happiness. Do you have other tasks to add to our list of daily chores?
