In the wild, animals adds mineral-rich-soil to their diet as their additional source for minerals. Some animals leak the soil, birds including fowls peck it and some animals even literally eats it. These minerals are a vital requirements for a body to grow, repair and function completely well.

How to Make Mineral-Rich-Soil

In all the ranges, for chicks and brood materials, we make mineral-rich-soil for them to peck to. You will then observed the game fowls will do some pecking and scratching with it, specially the female brood materials whenever they prepare therselves naturally for breeding. Adding compost piles with different components will make a soil rich in vitamins and minerals.

The Components

Banana and Sweet Potato Peels

(1/3) part Bananas have lots of vitamins and minerals. It has more even than the popular apple. And most of the vitamins and minerals are on these peelings. Sweet potato peelings sometimes included in the sack of banana peelings. We hire someone to haul the fresh peelings to the farm.

Local Leaves

Carbonized Rice Hull

3/9 parts. – this acts as harboring agents for the beneficial bateria.

Rice Straw

1/9 parts. Also a great source of minerals. Could also attract local beneficial organisms if added freshly cuts straw.

Sea Sand

Sea Weeds (kulafu as common name)

.5 part – a great source of minerals. Chickens even love it if given fresh, chopped and added in their ration.

Mixing Procedure

Put these components to a compost bin, preferably in leach-free compartment. We use cement or broken refregerators as bins. As being added on the bins, they are sprayed with beneficial microorganism. The beneficial organisms will turn these in to compost faster. These beneficial organisms will also help the chicken and farm’s environment  by outcompeting the pathogens resulting for a healthier game fowls and farm environment.

After two weeks the whole materials may be transfered to the range for the gamefowls to peck. You may also observe some would do dustbaths in this compost if you put more sands in them.

After two months, the farm may need to add some more compost to the ranges. And that’s it, one may need not to worry about mineral-diffeciency anymore with adding this to the program.
