Moving Day for the Hens

Ken moves the portable coop near the garden each fall so the hens are near the house for winter chores.  Then in spring once the ground is firm he moves them down the hill to a grassy spot or a spot with green manure.

Today was the day.  First he moved the "Hog Hilton" where he had housed cockerels and later the turkeys during the winter.  He took it down the hill for the pigs.

Then he hitched up the egg mobile and started out

Oscar was trying to herd those hens inside the coop to make sure they all made it!

And here are some of the hens in their new, grassy spotKen will keep moving them as the season progresses
