moving on

The peepers we received a few weeks ago are now ready to go outside. Sort of. If it weren't raining and sleeting.

This flock will lay eggs sometime this summer. They are out of the brooder and into a training pen: small with lots of roosts that are close to the ground. We will sort our current production hens, make certain they are laying and then move these in to replace the nonproductive hens. 

They love to get outside. Grass consumption just happens automatically.

Egg production is still months away. They have lots of growing to do first!
