    Yesterday my OH extended one of our flowerbeds which meant there were a few turves left over- so he decided to fill in some of the dust bath areas in the enclosure.
    Nice and flat....ten minutes later all 18 chooks were tucking into the insects in there- and nibbling away at the grass.
    Needless to say after a couple of hours all the turf had been shredded and scratched up- I think they sort of enjoyed themselves!!!!!
