Chooks

Chickens are great value on any block with our type of gardening philosophy. Besides being downright entertaining, they also perform many useful functions. Chickens are weed killers, compost processors, fertilizer makers, food producers, mulch throwers and destroyers of valuable seedlings.

They each have unique characters and personalities and contribute to the smooth running and well being of the garden. Well…anyone who has had chooks might disagree with that. They certainly find their way into every nook and cranny of the garden.
