The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Spud, these sites are terrific. Thanks! My granddaughter can use this information and I will be more careful about what I put in the chicken's bucket. I am sure th chickens will benefit and I will not make mistakes.
I am busy in the new greenhouse. Have it all planted with vegetables for the winter and making a few experiments with perennial plants for next spring. I look for fire resistant plants and hope to have all efforts finished to make the homes and buildings safe from forest fires. There have been sightings of a cougar on the southern edge of our 17 acres. Hope he leaves our new chickens alone. We have secured the coop and the free range as best we can for now. Cougars climb trees to get over the 7-foot protection we have now.
I don't know much about chickens, but a quick search turned-up this on what not to feed chickens: http://www.theprairiehomestead.com/2013/04/7-things-you-shouldnt-fe...

I give Michelle's chickens fresh vegetable and fruit trimmings every morning. They seem interested in it all and there are no remnants the next morning. I put any cooked fruits and vegetables in our compost. I don't know if the chickens like cooked ones or not. I don't give them meat.
Daniel is the person I ask when it comes to chickens.
Daniel, when you live in "farm country", you don't need raised beds, although it is tempting to try. I'm just too lazy. Really not. It's just that my motto is "keep it simple". That's why I'm so impressed with what you and others do. Did I ever mention my final mole total was 9? Haven't seen one in ages. "Piney" squirrels, too, totaled 9. And they've been deported. Maybe that's what I've needed--a "Trump wall".
