We have a large lawn and more clippings than we can compost. There are no chemicals used on the lawn so a bag of clippings is quite a treat for the girls. There’s probably a few bugs in there too, Bonus! An hour later it was had to tell the clippings were ever there. I love anything that we can ‘coop compost’, lawn clippings will be eggs tomorrow. Yup, one more reason for having chickens, beside the delicious quiche we had for breakfast.

The girls enjoy a lawn clipping treat!

New ‘Coop – Fortress’ update: Since the girls have been in the new ‘ coop fortress’, there hasn’t been any signs of predators. The living roof is great for mitigating the temperatures also. So far so good!Keep cool and enjoy your summer.
