Move-in Day for the Hens

Today is the day we move the hens into the newly finished chicken tractor. They looked so happy to be out in the fresh air. At the end of the day the idea is they go up the ramp and roost inside at night and we close the ramp up to protect them from predators. About 4-5 of the hens decided they would roost on the ground, probably take a while for them to get the flick. Either that or something will snatch them.

Had a fun time with the wife wrangling the hens in the coop and moving them in.

Guinea’s are Laying Eggs

Emily found a freshly layed guinea egg on her walk today. Since it was laying in the middle of the path we’ve secured it and if we can get a few more we’ll fire up the incubator.

Also found one right in the middle of the driveway, broken open and eaten. Must have been a crow or something that got to it.
