Homesteading tips and tricks for the homestead newbie or for seasoned homesteaders.
Here at Green Willow Homestead, we have 40 chicken mouths to feed (and counting!). Our chickens are definitely spoiled. We allow them access to pasture, they freely browse a MOSA certified Organic Chicken Feed, and we give them all our chicken-approved kitchen scraps. When I started to keep track of our expenses though, reality smacked me right in the face. - Green Willow Homestead #chickenfeed #chickenkeeping #homesteading #chickencare #backyardchickens
