Typical our style. Its 15 degrees..dusk approaching..a nor'easter bearing down on us...and...voila! We bust out the chicken house in a 3 hour push.
It aint pretty...but it will do. The hens are moved in, thanks to my 7 year old chicken catcher. I would put her up against any 60 year old poultry farmer any day...she's fast, accurate and fearless and she can carry up to 4 hens at a time, upsidedown, two per hand. She's incredible.
We are already psyched about shortened water and grain hauling trips...
And I am dreaming about slipper-footed runs just steps out the back door to fresh eggs.
