Moving Animals

Ken has been busy moving animals to winter locations.  First he moved the tom turkey and we moved the females to a woodsy area east of the house.  Close, but private for them.

Ken also moved the egg mobile from an area near the mobile high tunnel to a spot on the driveway.  He had planted forage for them, and they love the greens.

Next we divided up the nearly grown home hatched chickens - males go to a greenhouse to clean up bugs and plants for winter.  Females - pullets - are in an area adjacent to the egg mobile.  The next day he opens it up so the older hens and young pullets can get used to each other and join together as comfort allows.

Soon the pigs will be moving on.  and then on a warm fall day we will butcher those chickens who need to go
