Free-ranging your chickens can seem idyllic and peaceful. Watching them roam in the backyard, pecking at bugs, can be soothing. But in reality, there are some dangers to be aware of. Nutrena poultry expert Twain Lockhart offers some tips for the care and feeding of your free range flock in this video.
• Chickens will eat ticks as well as many other bugs that infest gardens
• Free range makes chickens more vulnerable to predators, so be sure to place them in the coop at night
• Egg Producer provides them a healthy balanced diet so they’ll continue to lay eggs
