Raising Chickens Naturally- The Inside Story from Its Pioneer, Susan Burek

Raising Chickens Naturally- The Inside Story from Its Pioneer, Susan Burek
It’s only natural to wonder about the qualifications of individuals offering us any type of advice and advice about our chickens is no different. So, with all the talk of “natural chicken keeping” in the past few years, it makes sense to ask questions about what it means to raise chickens naturally, where the concept for raising chickens naturally came from and who is qualified to tell us how to employ these novel methods properly in our backyard flocks. I am often asked questions about the use of apple cider vinegar, garlic, herbs, diatomaceous earth and other modalities considered holistic, natural and/or herbal, which raises questions in my mind about what it means to raise chickens naturally. What is holistic chicken-keeping? What does it mean to be an herbalist? You know from my blog articles about pumpkin seeds, apple cider vinegar, oregano oil, nesting box herbs and diatomaceous earth that I have dug deep to get the straight-dope on whether these things do what proponents claim they do for our chickens or whether we are being led down the garden path by blind Sherpas and that digging continues.

Frizzle Feathered Chickens, Divas of the Chicken World

"Frizzle" refers to a genetic trait that causes a chicken's feathers to grow out and curl away from the body instead of growing flat and smooth, following the body contour. Frizzle is not a breed, it is a genetically programmed feather type.
This is Rachel. If you haven't already made her acquaintance, she's something of a hen starlet on my Facebook page where she is featured daily in all her fluffy cuteness. Rachel is a Bantam Cochin Frizzle. Cochin is her breed, bantam describes her miniature size and frizzle describes her unusual feathers. Genetics cause frizzled feathers to grow out and curl away from the body instead of  growing flat and smooth following the body contour. Frizzle is not a breed, it is a genetically programmed feather type.
