The idea of these workshops came from Geoff Lawton movie “chicken tractor on steroids”. It implements Karl Hammer’s method of raising chickens without grains. Chickens feed on composting material and drop their manure into the compost pile. The pile is kept in place to let some anaerobic fermenting to better preserve nutrients and then turned once a week several times. In winter a pile should be large enough to not freeze.
Here is our procedure:
Then we move the fence 4 meters towards the coop, leaving one heap outside. Three heaps and the cage stay inside the fence.
