Our Barred Rock chicks are doing great! We chose the this breed mainly for dual purpose eggs/meat, as well as being tolerant to the cold, wet winters up here in the PNW.
We are also going to be making a chicken tractor for our fields this winter to help with soil health. Stay tuned for more clips as these little turds grow! 🐥

    Ever tried heating a greenhouse with them? Come in at night into coup inside greenhouse. Lil turds provide more heat per pound than you can imagine.

    Also great in greenhouses for eating grasshoppers, Colorado potato beetles, slugs and more! And fertilizing of course 😁
