Once a week, we move hook up our chicken coop to the tractor and move the chickens to fresh ground, where they can forage for bugs and have a new supply of green grass. Here’s a short clip of them exiting the coop to their new spot for the week.
Watch this short video clip to see our new apprentice, Janice, show off the newest additions to the Jenny Jack Sun Farm family– baby chickens! The chicks are in incubation as of now and will be joining the rest of our laying hens in another month or so. As any of you who have visited the farm know, our chickens are pastured and we move them to new pasture every one to two weeks. We move the chickens regularly to give them a new food source. In return, they help aerate and fertilize our land. The eggs from these chickens that are allowed plenty of sun, lots of roaming space and a well balanced diet are higher in many vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids than traditional eggs from hens kept in confinement and exposed to artificial, continuous light. We hope you enjoy seeing our new chicks!
