Having chickens is a way of turning our waste into food for hens and in turn they turn it back into food for us -- eggs (now thats a real good example of a circular economy ). Adding biochar to poultry feed improves health of poultry and improves the quality of the chicken litter for making an excellent garden compost-- read below.
