Well managed pastured poultry benefits the soil, which builds the foundation of a healthy ecosystem. This video not only addresses flock safety, but it also reveals the pastured poultry ethos. Pastured poultry is an interconnected system that builds healthy soil, healthy environments, healthy chickens, and healthy people.

Ways to Keep the Flock Safe

An important part of making sure pastured poultry coexist with the local wildlife population is to take steps to keep the flock safe. The video showcases the following methods of flock protection:

  • Fencing
  • Movement
  • Shelter Design
  • Guardian Animals
  • Wildlife Corridors
