I rode with Braden last week to Abendroth Hatchery to pick up his chicks. Braden got a couple hundred broilers and some red pullets for layers.
They are off to a good start, although its been cold this first week of April. Braden plans to build movable pens and start them on pasture as soon as the chicks are big enough and the weather moderates.
We have a butcher date for May 22nd, so we plan to have chicken available at the Dane County Farmer’s Market on May 26th.
Danielle has started vegetables in trays in her apartment. She says they are off to a good start as well. My young partners are excited to start farming!
