Group of Pekin ducks from 2020. We now raise Muscovy. Both these breeds do very well raised outside, on pasture.
Aerial view of us moving the chickens from one paddock to another. The circle on the right is where the chickens were (you can see how they have eaten a lot of the grass there), and the circle on the left is where they are moving to. They happily run into the new paddock to get fresh grass and bugs.
We call this the Turk-Mahal. Turkeys love to roost! So hubby build them a state of the art roost system that is mobile. You can see them walking up the ladder to get to the roosts 🤗
Our favorite chicken from 2020! The Only chicken who got a name 💚 You can see we do not have our chickens beaks trimmed. We never have, and promise to never do so. If a chicken has enough space to live, it will not become stressed enough to start pecking it’s fellow chickens.
Aerial view of moving our turkeys. You can see the lighter circles are where the turkeys have been. Turkeys love eating grass!
Another view of the chicken move. It is hard to believe there are over 600 chickens in this picture. They were scared of the drone! 😂 So they are all hiding under the wagons. Although it was funny, that instinct to hide when something is in the air, is actually what keeps them safe from aeriel predators like hawks.
