The Weekly Roost

7 07 2009
Thanks to Dave for the name suggestion for our weekly coop and chicken feature!  This week we have another chicken tractor .  A chicken tractor is a portable coop.  They are great for urban chicken enthusiasts because they are mobile and can be moved from place to place as needed.  Tractors are excellent for spot control of weeds and for fertilizing particular areas.  Just move the coop where your weed or fertilizer problem is, and the chickens take care of it!

The chicks who live in this week’s roost are (from front to back then right), a Buff Orpington, an Easter Egger, a Black Australorp and a Barred Plymouth Rock.  At 3 weeks, chicks are loosing their fluff and growing feathers.  They can look pretty awkward!
