Pasture Poutry

Here are the Fry Pan special chickens 8 weeks old and out on pasture. The traveling chicken house can be moved to another location daily or as needed. We shut up the chickens at night so no critters can get them. You can see by the photo at the right how healthy they are. We are feeding them a non-GMO grower we get in the heart of Amish country.  We are hoping to butcher them at 12-15 weeks. The biggest just might go earlier for some fried chicken. Next week I am taking some of my Delaware chicken eggs to an Amish friend to be incubated for fall chicks. I'll keep the hens and we'll butcher the roosters along with our older hens for stewing and soups.
