Healthy Happy Chickens
WE STILL HAVE LOTS TO DO!
We plan to raise about 100 egg-laying "Leghorn" chickens per hectare of olive grove.
We plan to feed them kitchen scraps from the farm and also from our community compost collection supply. Their main source of diet will be grubs and insects from the field. They will have to scratch and peck at the ground to find their nutrition, thus expressing their natural physiological behavior.
We are in the process of building a mobile chicken coop that will follow them to fresh pastures, equipped with egg nest boxes, perches, water supply and predator protection.
