I use wood chippings, too.

And boards. I use a garden shredder for prunings and keeping the willows in check, so I rake the old clippings up and put them on the compost heap beore I put the new ones down. Mine have  a small covered area so it's always dry under there and they can enjoy a dust bath.

I feed layers pellets and I take a small handful of mixed corn to them several times a week, which they eat from my hand. This gets them used to being handled, which is really useful as you can check them over without tem getting scared and stressed. I grow spinach beet so there's always plenty of green stuff or them in the winter and I put this hanging just above their head height. Keeps them busy and the greens don't get trampled underfoot.

Favourite chicken treats are chilis and the inside of red and green peppers. Also keep the feed and water inside if you can so wild birds don't get at it (I feed wild birds at the other end of the garden so they don't miss out).

I only have five girls to look after now. Before I got feeble I had over thirty. Far less work with just a few :smile

thanks Bee

have changed to wood chip as well after a bit more research and the horse hemp bedding which I use for my tortoise seems to be the stuff of choice.

 

Just got to wait for re-homing day now :smile
