Moving the Brooders

It finally came time to move the new brooders. These brooders were built to be movable instead of cleanable... keeping in line with our pastured approach to raising animals. These young are put right on real ground from hatching.  They learn earlier to forage, and have a much cleaner environment  of fresh grass and soil full of seeds, bugs, etc.

So, we took the tractor and gave it a go!  Here's the pics:

Is it going to lift straight?

YES! Success!

Slowly now.. moving to the new spot

And there they are! fresh grass and ground!
