Chicken update.. Liming the pen for odours & pests..

Had a bit of rain over the past few days so thought I would share a tip on using lime to keep the odours down when the chicken pen gets a drenching..
Lime also doubles as a lice & mite treatment as well which is a bit of a bonus.. Watched a great clip by Blake Kirby on how he used wood ash to control biting pests in his chicken run.. Something we don’t do here yet but think we will give it a crack this winter..
You can fine Blake’s “Why have a fire in the Chicken Run” clip here,

Have a great one everyone…
