New Equipment!

18 06 2009

One of the first things we said we wanted for the farm over a year ago was portable electric fencing (PEF) for the chickens. This more easily allows the whole pasturing thing to occur. Well, a few weeks ago, we invested in it, and today it finally arrived!

Chickens need to be free, yet their movement needs to be restricted.  PEF is the perfect compromise.

Ben and Tim installed it with ease; beer aided them.   Our chickens were scared into their newly electrified range.   Now we observe.   We have lots of hawks, and we will be watching them as well.
