What an adventure we are having with our pastured chickens in Georgia. Here on Joyful Noise Acres Farm, in North Georgia, the meat birds and laying hen chicks have arrived. My build – anything husband constructed a fabulous brooder box for the chicks to give them even more growing room.
Raising this many birds is an adventure in itself. Our daughter is expanding the farm fresh egg business alongside our pastured poultry business. Build-anything husband has had his work cut out building a new chicken tractor to house her laying hens and more chicken tractors for the pastured poultry. I have commandeered the old tractor to raise three Bronze Breasted turkeys.
Next season, we will sell pastured turkeys. I have heard raising turkeys can be a challenge so I am in the learning curve. So far, they have been a joy to watch and care for.
