A Busy Week

Hi folks!

Well, it’s been a productive and busy week so far, and it’s not over yet. The first batch of broiler chicks are going out on pasture today, and the next batch will soon arrive to live in the brooder. Also, the concrete has been poured for the new poultry processing shed!
The eggmobile is full of laying hens, who are happily following the cows in the fields. Compost is being spread out on the fields. Grass is greening up and getting beautiful.
Some pigs are out on mountain pasture, while others are “pigaerating” in the cows’ bedding from winter. We’ve had several baby calves born, too. They’re adorable! I wish that I had more photos to share, but the wet weather has kept my camera indoors.

    Do you have any designs that you can share for your broiler chick pens??? Really needing some ideas. Got the "you can farm" book and am ready to get going NOW, hehehe. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
