This is the season of bonfires, as the year's dead vegetation is consigned to the flames. Chickens will head straight for any ashes left over from a bonfire, so make sure they've cooled down to avoid any accidental roast chickens!

As the days get shorter and the nights start to draw in its important to remember to lock the door of your chicken coop promptly at dusk, to make sure night-prowling predators don't try to snatch an early supper. And finally, sort out your compost heap and give it a good turn, to make sure all those chicken droppings are working their magic for next year.
