I have had chickens for 4 years now (nope, not getting so many eggs anymore but that's the way it goes). I used to have such a lovely rose garden in the back yard and used commercial fertilizers. With the chickens I moved to compost tea and added compost on a regular basis. Alas, the girls really like to eat my roses. I think I got the billy-goat kind of chickens and they are masquerading as cochins. I no longer fertilize anything in the back yard and the apple & orange production is off as well.
Does anyone have a good source for fertilizer with chickens? Thanks.
