At breakfast a friend of a member told me how great the eggs tasted. I replied that good food, fresh air and pasture is all it takes. If you want to cut corners to make the eggs cheap then the work starts.
Last week we moved the girls onto a cover crop that is now dominated by alfalfa. They love alfalfa; the protein is high and they cannot seem to get enough. Agustin did give them some wheat fermented with organic cheese whey to keep them occupied while we installed the fence. We will move their house down this field over the next few weeks so that their droppings will be evenly distributed.
They can take this wonderful green field down to bare soil very quickly they like it so much. This makes cultivating these beds after they move on easier.
