So, you want to keep backyard chickens? Some lessons are painful and expensive to learn by experience, so in the hope of sparing some growing pains for those about to embark on chicken-keeping, I have asked my Facebook fans what they wish they had known before they began keeping chickens. The following are some of their replies and a few of my own.
Chicken Spa treatment. When it's realy hot take a shallow disposable pan, fill it with ice water and then sprinkle in some fresh herbs. The fresh herb make this absolutely irresistible. They enjoy standing in it, drinking from it and sampling cool refreshing treats.
