You Can Make Your Chickens Do The Gardening? Awesome!


This might actually qualify as being too cool for school. Bruce Morgan, a farmer from Australia, has figured out a great way to get his chickens involved in gardening around the house using a series of wire tunnels. It really goes to show how useful a chicken can be for your farm, even aside from providing eggs!

Bruce, an Australian permaculturist, designed an intricate system of what he calls “chook tunnels,” chook being the Australian nickname for the chicken. These tunnels funnel his hens all over his garden, allowing them to scratch, peck at weeds, and aerate the soil around his rows of vegetables.

You might think of it as being slave labor, but the chickens seem to be enjoying themselves, don’t they? In this system, chickens aren’t a tool to produce meat and eggs, but a member of a broader system that works quite efficiently.

Pretty neat, huh? Check out the video below for a full tour.

    Dr Unity helped me to restore my relationship after a breakup,I’m Brown Guevara by name and i am from Canada. My wife broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring her back but all was in vain, I wanted her back so much because of the love I have for her, I begged her with everything, I made promises but she refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring her back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called (Dr Unity) and I email her ( , and she told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before two days, that my ex will return to me before two days, she cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 5pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all she said was that she was so sorry for everything that happened, that she wanted me to return to her, that she loves me so much. I was so happy and went to her, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, her email: ( or call him on +2348072370762 ).. Thank you very much for your great work.
