Potatoes and free range chooks
I've decided to try free ranging the chooks in the hope they will eat up the ticks. I fenced off the back of garden to keep them in while they learn to get back into the cage at night. While I was putting the fence in I found some potatoes - I thought since they had little time before being killed off by frost there wouldn't be tubers but there were some. The chooks follow me around - and annoyingly two of them now squat when I get near them - how rude first I'm not a chicken and second I'm not male! Getting three eggs a day though a few have been eaten - bad news if it goes on as I'll have to figure out which chook it is and get rid of it.
