Today was graduation day for a batch of six-week-old chicks. We moved them out of the brooding house and into the long greenhouse where they will spend the rest of the winter. They have plenty of straw and hay for bedding, plus some heat lamps for warmth. In the spring, they should start laying just as the weather gets warm enough to bring them out to the pasture.
The NRCS has given us a grant to install a culvert where our farm road crosses a seasonal stream to help us keep the livestock out of the stream. We are also beefing up our fencing along the stream. This is a shot of one of Kevin Sweeney’s guys putting on the finishing touches.
