Chickens hard at work

Our 6 chickens are enjoying eating the grubs and kikuyu in the south west corner of the garden. temp chicken run 1 (2)The yellow area of grass was covered by black plastic for 8 weeks. This started the process of destroying the kikuyu, and now the chickens are scratching around and finishing the job for us. We know they like the corner because they now run from their permanent run to the temporary one when let our each morning. They are already making a good start at cleaning up the corner, and we plan to finish the job before the Fresh Food Fair in November. When cleared this will be the site for an orange tree.
