Today is a big day for our Pastured Poultry Layers. Well, it is for me anyway.
Today Chicken Tractor #1 met up with Tractor #2 and from now on, they will travel the pastures together. Phew! There were some long moves for the older girls every day, and they protested a little at first. But after the video was complete they followed me from the barn to their new home and began happily scratching in the pasture.
The sheep & goats passed through this field 4 days ago now and while it’s been chilly and wet, there *are* some bugs beginning to thrive in the pastures so the girls will be well nourished – fat and happy.
