Chickens on Pasture
osting about the meat chickens has taken a back seat to calving. The goal was to get the chickens out on pasture before Jane calved. The chores take a little longer, but are more convenient, if that makes any sense. The weather has been perfect for the birds too, not too cold or wet and not too hot either. It was nice to get them moved and acclimated before I had to spend so much time dairying.
We get another head count when we have to catch all the birds and move them, which is good just to make sure no one is missing.
They have no idea what to think about the short pickup ride to the pasture pen, once they get there though, they get right to work.
