Make fast compost with chickens while they eat for free--Use mobile coop, enclose with electric/portable netting, assemble a compost pile using poop, veg. scraps, brown & green layers,water, cover & let it heat up. This encourages worms, bugs into the pile. Remove the cover & let the chickens mix/turn it! Then re-assemble the pile repeat. IN about 4 weeks the compost will be ready. You can let the chickens spread it too.

"Added a hole in the kiddy swimming pool, and put in a standard cork. The bottom I made a makeshift septic system. So you put out the plug, it drains, Spray it with a hose and let the ducks get back to playing." - Genius!

Backyard Duck Pond .kinda cool - Survivalist Forum
Duck Pond If you have ducks check out this easy clean duck pond idea. He took a kiddie pool and made a hole for drainage that he seals with a cork. Built some timber pieces to hold it up and then when it needs cleaned he just pulls the plug and it drains into a makeshift septic underneath. I believe you could capture the water to use as fertilizer on the garden.

I have to say from experience though, don't give older birds an oatmeal container. Especially if its still closed on one end. They can get stuck and suffocate. But the rest are good ideas!

Grazing Frames for your Backyard Chickens | Reclaim, Grow, Sustain i have some left over screen... great idea.... I could buy grass seed and build this in the chicken coop.
Plant Greens For Your Backyard Chickens: When chickens have plenty of room to roam, they will graze a little off the top, then move on. When forage space is limited, however, as in a small urban or suburban backyard, chickens will continue to graze and scratch in the same spot until the vegetation is torn down to the roots. An easy solution? Grazing frames! - Great idea!

almost all chicks are born on factory famrs which are nothing but animal death camps. hald of them are male and they will all be murdered on the first day of their life as they are of no use to the egg/meat industry - and so they are suffocated ot cut up alive in machines called Chippers. And honestly, they are the lucky ones because their sisters and mothers have a more horrible fate. God forgive us for our senseless killing of baby birds and animals by the billions - Eternal Treblinka.

DIY Fix for Bumblefoot: If you raise enough chickens long enough you will most likely be faced with a case or two of bumblefoot. Bumblefoot is basically a staph infection in which bacteria enters a chicken's (or duck's) foot through a cut caused by a splinter or other sharp object and causes infection which can travel up the leg. It can also be caused by a hard landing off a high roost and tends to affect the heavier breeds. If left untreated it can potentially kill the chicken. (read more)
