This is one amazing mama… I think she raised 3 batches of chicks last year!
I was just sent this info on a workshop coming up in Amherst, at Simple Gifts Farm, and it sounds pretty good. I noticed today they moved their way-cool “chicken tractor” up close to the road. Thought maybe some of you would be interested… they will teach about chicken tractors and even sell some coops (pre-ordered) and already-laying hens!
Workshop on raising laying hens being offered by Dave Tepfer of Simple Gifts Farm.
