The benefits of chicken tractors: this picture shows where the tractor has been. The foreground was Sunday’s location and the grass is already greening up again and the rain has washed the nitrogen into the soil already. The dry spot to the rear left is where they spent Monday, with the tarp over the tractor as protection from the rain. As soon as they are moved to a new location, they start pecking happily at the fresh greens until it’s time to roost for the night. The chickens benefit from foraging, the ground benefits from having nitrogen added and isn’t harmed by the short-term stay on it, and we benefit from the happy hens with their eggs. Win win!

Tonight I grilled the chicken thighs I bought from Sweet Gum Farm. They were delicious. Full of flavor, smooth texture... and so juicy. I’m glad I didn’t use any seasoning but salt and pepper. The thighs didn’t need any other seasoning. It was a pleasure to eat chicken that wasn’t tough and rubbery like the stuff I buy at the grocery store. Thank you for excellent chicken 🐓read more
