Backyard chickens – Chicken coop and run updates

Published on December 5, 2016



If you haven’t watched my first video (the one with the most hits), start with that! After more than a year of bliss, the chickens started pecking out each others butt feathers :-/ What a hassle! Early research indicated it might be mites, but I treated for that and the problem continued. So, I extended their living space (adding 200 square feet of scratching space) and the problem seems to be improving; it looks like they were simply bored in such a confined space.
