Chicken wrangling

No pic to go along with this post. This is simply a note for our records. Today we took 17 laying hens from the brood house and moved them into the main chicken flock. These birds were banded with white bands, numbered 1-17.

We also took 5 meat chickens and 1 meat rooster and moved them temporarily to the brood house. Tomorrow the meat birds will be banded and moved into a chicken tractor out in the pasture where they will spend their spring, summer, and fall. The eggs these chickens lay, after two weeks for clearing the blood line, will go into an incubator and be transformed into new meat birds for this year.
