with our friends the Scotts
Afton Filed Farms is an Sustainable Living Farm.
We got a hay ride out to see there Broiler Chickens.
They only take 8 weeks to raise before butcher so they have a fast turn over!They house 80 chickens per pen!
Honey BeesThey had a huge number of layer hens!
Here are the kids running around with them.
Amazingly they figured out how to have this many chickens without the fear of airborne predators. The have owls and chicken hawks, and used to have a problem, but since they added a few geese to the flock they have had no problems.
Apparently geese can be pretty aggressive and the hawks and owls don’t want to mess with them.
