When it comes to feeding your chickens scraps and treats, one of the biggest challenges is filtering through all the information out there. In this post I’m going to review and fact check some of the food that is commonly listed as toxic to chickens.

Are you approaching your food garden like an olive farmer or fast food gardener? It’s really difficult to think like an olive farmer, but there’s significant advantages for those willing to take a longer term approach. Just like a financial asset, a natural asset will pay you back year after year with little to no effort involved. Except rather than money, these natural assets pay you back with something you literally can’t buy these days – clean and nutritious food.
