Pastured Hens and Cover Crops

Right now we have nine hens pasturing in three of these tractors.

A planting of rye and buckwheat where we grew a bed of greens and carrots last year. This fall we will plant garlic here after the chickens scratch through a few plantings like this.

This new tractor should hold four to six hens just fine. It just needs a nesting box or two and fencing to be stapled on.

  1. Buckwheat/rye looks real good. How are tractor sales coming along?

    Off to work for me, then I'll go be a 99%er tomorrow. Happy May Day!
