Thanks, Greg. That's exactly what I meant. The unchallenged organism atrophies in the long term. So too with divergent evolutionary lines.

Have you considered free-ranging with a chicken tractor?



I think we have different definitions of 'free-ranging'.



I guess my definition includes anything that allows the chickens to freely choose their natural diet outdoors.
However, I believe they call chickens ranging in pastures under mobile pens to keep them from being eaten by predators, "pastured chickens".

We built a composting toilet high enough to fit a wheelie bin underneath. Once the bin is full it is left out in a sunny spot for about 6 months. In summer the BSF larvae consume the waste like crazy so it takes longer to fill the bin and as our summers are very hot the pathogens would be killed off. After the 6 months the bin is emptied into a compost bay in the chicken run.
