How to Keep Chickens

Paul Wheaton has an interesting article on keeping chickens where he promotes a rotational paddock system. While I’m not quite ready to adopt his method, we are doing a modified coop & run arrangement for my brother. The chickens are running on 6″+ of wood chips and after 6-9 months the whole thing will be moved over, some soil layered on top of the wood chips and then a garden planted. The composting wood chips and chicken poop should provide a good place for plants to grow and the deep bedding material keeps the chickens from standing around in their own poo all the time.
