We started chicks in the brooder earlier this year, at the end of March. They went into their field pen while it was still quite cold out, so an extension cord was stretched out to the pen and lights were on them to keep them warm. The last 4-5 weeks the birds have been moving their way across the field in their pen: needed to protect them from all the predators that love chicken.
Two days each week we will process so that we can offer fresh (not frozen) chicken to our customers. And to us too, yay!
