Almost Egg Time

Lori HavensHere at Farm on the Hill in Richland Center, Wisconsin, "Mud Season" has begun in earnest. We eagerly await the pastures complete thawing and firming up enough to bring our first critters out to the green grass. This year, it'll be the chickens. 

The broilers are still in the brooder in the basement, and they are growing like weeds! It's amazing to watch the way they change, literally before our eyes. 

In the tractor shed, farmer Bryan Havens has added the roof and the sides to the Egg Mobile in preparation for the laying hens to join us in just a couple more weeks.

The two photos below show the interior of the Egg Mobile. The nesting box will be hung on the left side wall closest to you in this first photo. On the outside of the Egg Mobile, behind the nesting box, there will be a hinged panel, which we can raise and prop open in order to collect all the eggs laid in the nest boxes from the outside.
