One of our first priorities this spring was to build a brooder for our meat birds that we raise from day old chicks. Below are some pictures of the project.
Coffee is a farmer favorite!
Our New Flock!
We picked up 140 new Pullets and temporarily had to put them in the new brooder while we made ready their layer Wagon
|The hens are not used to roosts yet.... until they begin laying, that instinct won't kick in.....|
|140 Pullets inside of the layer wagon does not leave a lot of room, but once they are out on pasture they will only lay eggs and sleep inside.|
The door has been open for 4 hours and non have been brave enough to see the world yet... Chickens
