Abstract: To study the influence of feeding chickens from the forest floor,typical investigation were used to obtain species diversity indices of the shrub and herb layers;soil physical and chemical properties;and the number of soil microorganisms in Carya cathayensis and Phyllostachys propinqua forests on the ecological chicken farm in Henglu Town,Zhejiang Province. Results showed 1)that the frequency of chicken activity influenced soil physical and chemical properties and that the number of soil available phosphorus and potassium, hydrolytic nitrogen,as well as the total number of soil microorganisms in the soil near chicken house were increased. 2)Feeding chickens from the forest floor decreased the diversity indices. For example,there were seven kinds of shrub species and twenty-wo kind of herb species in plot A1;the number of shrub species in plot A2 was three and herbs was fourteen;however,in plot A3,there were no shrub or herb left, which indiced that the closer to the chicken house the lower with diversity indices. 3)Also,the C. cathayensis forest had a superior biomass and water holding capacity in the litter layer compared to the Ph. propinqua forest. The C. cathayensis forest had a better water conservation function and was more suitable for raising chickens;therefore, by regulating the balance between the chicken density and biodiversity,greater benefits with sustainable cultivation could be achieved when feeding chickens from the forest floor.
