Free labor

Our chickens are on a rotating pasture system made possible by a portable solar electric fence. This keeps them safe from kids predators and allows them fresh grass and bugs. When they are on the same patch for many days they turn the space to dirt. So we are using their hard work to weed one of my many flower beds. A win-win situation – less work for me and delicious eggs.
