Old boards make worm buffet for chickens
couple of weeks ago, Mark figured out that the old
boards tacking down
the bottom edge of our pasture fence were attracting scads of
earthworms. He tipped a board up and the hens came running,
eating up the worms in seconds. Ever since, he's made it a habit
to flip up a board or two when he goes in to gather the eggs in the
evening. I keep thinking that we'd run out of worms, but new
worms keep appearing to take the old ones' place.
Our chicken waterer provides POOP-free water even in the irregular terrain of our forest pastures.
