Our chicken-grazing system
usually runs like clockwork. Our laying flock lives in our northern
chicken coop and grazes in the woods all winter. In the spring, I start

when chicks are this age since we can start with the brooder at one end
of the pasture then move it to the other end the next week. The photo
above shows a pasture nearly completely used up at the end of the week.
And here the flock is in
the next pasture on their list. I've let the grass grow taller than I
usually do since it was so dry in April and May that I was afraid if I
cut the vegetation, it wouldn't grow back. Hopefully our recent rain and
a dose of chicken manure will get new grass growing before the flock
comes back around to each pasture again.
Move on to the next pasture, boys and girls!
