Keeping a few laying hens in your garden really is 'The Good Life' Made Easy! First of all you have the very best mobile recycling facilities (apart from Pigs in my experience), plus you get free fresh eggs from keeping your hens as pets. They are pretty easy to look after but can be quite pongy if their digestive systems aren't in tip top condition.
To help reduce smells and encourage a healthy gut https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/products/bokashi-active-bran is great to add to your conventional food or to sprinkle on the bedding or for an easier solution we can send you either layers mash with bokashi mixed in or layers pellets with bokashi mixed in straight from our farm.
Bokashi is a similar idea to probiotic yogurt or kefir. Originating in Japan it uses bran as the carrier and beneficial micro-organisims, yeasts and fungi to work together to encourage a healthy gut and reduce odours.

PS: For a real treat for your girls you can do no better than LIVE MEALWORMS
Mealworms are clean and odourless and can easily be stored in a cool garage or utility room. They are vegetarians in themselves and they provide your hens with a unique mixture of protein, fat and water. This makes them the most nutritious food for hens.
