Chickens are true omnivores. They are not vegetarians. When left to their own devices as they have been for generations on family farms, they will seek out a wide variety of weeds, grasses, seeds, grains, fruits, …
If you are using the herbicide and it by accident gets on your preciouise plants you must hose them back quickly. The earlier accomplished the less probability of harm impacting the health of your own plant.
Often when we’re spraying somewhere else the wind can conduct the spray with vegetation and yes it won’t be until finally at some point after that this injury from this appears.
This injury will appear because results in that are presently smaller, shortened along with damage.
Food miles is a term which refers to the distance food is transported from the time of its production until it reaches the consumer. Food miles are one factor used when assessing the environmental impact of food, including the impact on global warming.
The concept of food miles originated in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom. It was conceived by Professor Tim Lang, at the Sustainable Agriculture Food and Environment (SAFE) Alliance and first appeared in print in a report “The Food Miles Report: The dangers of long-distance food transport”, researched and written by Angela Paxton.
When I last wrote about Food From the Sky”s rooftop supermarket garden, they had just picked up an award for their zero food miles produce. It seems the project is still going strong, and I”ve just come across a great video.
Since our first hen (Mustard) started laying on January 8th, she’s laid an egg for us every morning. Other chicken keepers we’d spoken to had said that once they start to lay they don’t always lay every day or that we may get “wind” eggs. But good old Mustard has given us one every day, including this morning. I went out this afternoon to give them their afternoon treat (mixed corn today) and checked the nesting box and there was a second egg! We think it was probably Raucous Ruby (nicknamed “raucous” because she is the noisiest of our three chickens). It was a lighter brown colour than Mustard’s and almost speckled – quite pretty.
Well this was a very exciting day in our household. I’ve been checking the nesting box everyday – just in case, but without much hope. The eldest of our 3 hens has a comb that is much deeper bit and much bigger than the other so I’ve been thinking she might be mature enough to lay. But it’s only the first week in January (the 8th, to be precise), and while the days are noticeably longer I didn’t think it would make a difference. But, “hey presto” when I opened the lid of the nesting box this afternoon there was a lovely brown egg!. Now we are going to have to draw straws to see who has it for breakfast.

O dear, today, Annie and Pat came to pick up our oops their chickens. We were very sad to see them go. Mind you, it has given us a real idea of what chickens will do to a lawn. Here is an “after” photo of the area where the chicken house has been:
The slightly less bald area to the right is where the chicken house was, and the very bald part to the left is where the run was. So if you are proud of your lawn don’t let the chickens onto it. On the other hand if you are looking to clear a bit of weedy land that chickens might be the thing for you.
