Chickens are a fascinating addition to many urban and suburban homes. Fresh, free-range eggs for breakfast are a delicious treat. Many soon learn that chickens also make great pets. They are quite hardy and most of their health issues are preventable with a bit of foresight.
Because chickens want to look good too!
Do you want to eat eggs from chickens doused in toxic chemicals? Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring fine powder composed of the fossilized remains of microscopic diatoms.
