Fernando is building chicken tractors and to protect the plastic pipe from the sun he first paints with a special plastic primer. He says green is a good color for an organic farm. the chicks are brooding in large round metal cattle troughs in the greenhouse. This work well in the summer. These are rodent proof and so long as we keep the wire mesh on top the cats are also frustrated. They will stay in these for up to three weeks. Agustin is in charge of the chickens.
