We have enjoyed virtual weather perfection here in New England this week, which has allowed me plenty of time to putter in the yard and garden. The chickens have been making good use of the sunshine too, enjoying hours of Cucumber Tetherball! When not outside, I spent quite a lot of time researching and writing an article for you about the benefits of Sweet PDZ with chickens as I welcomed Sweet PDZ as my newest sponsor!

Cucumer tetherball.

Sweet PDZ has been used primarily by horse keepers over the past 25 years to control ammonia, odors and moisture in horse stalls, but somehow it has remained largely under the backyard chicken community’s radar. I wondered how the moisture produced by horses might compare to chickens and was shocked when I extrapolated the data to draw the comparison: it would take more than 200 laying hens to produce the same amount of waste as one average sized horse in a day, not including litter! If you haven’t already read my article about how this product can benefit your flock’s health and make your coop smell sweeter, I invite you to do so! The article can be read HERE.

Nice job at the meeting establishing the facts of Brand establishment, that you are as described in the zoning code a 5 acre farm and that you are working to help set up regulations to preserve backyard chicken keepers rights to keep in healthy living condition. Well done Chicken Chick and I guess you probably didn't think at any time you wanted to grow up to be the chicken chick, however here you are. lol the lord works in mysterious ways sometimes using tools we would never have expected in ways that enlighten us all.
