This past summer we raised turkeys and several different batches
of chickens: specially-bred meat birds, scrawny Rhode Island red (both
for meat birds), and laying hens (these primarily Rhode Island red as well).
We used chicken tractors to allow them to move each day to a new
plot of grass. It was a neat experience for us all.

Dear Einstein! Yes that is his name...crazy hairdo!
Einstein came with the Rhode Island reds and was labeled
as an "exotic chick". When we had the other roosters slaughtered,
we couldn't bear to lose him...so he is still with us!
