I am sharing my revelation with you now so you don’t miss out on this like I did.
We just “beefed” up our laying hen production. We went from our 4 laying hens in 2018 to 30 laying hens in 2019. This called for a whole new approach to EVERYTHING.
- A bigger chicken house
- Easier clean up
- More water and feed and a better management of that
- More nesting boxes (and ones that they will actually use)
- A bigger, taller outdoor aviary for them where they are protected from Ravens, Owls, Fox, Coyotes, and everything else
So, what my BIG revelation?????????
A roosting bar over a sand box
Clean up works like this: kitty litter scooper, bucket, no more poop.
You can thank me now or later on when you install one in your chicken house.
And your birds will thank you too since they LOVE rolling around and scratching at sand.
