Our assortment of colored laying pullets from Hoover’s have now reached 10 weeks old! They continue to grow and get more and more stunning! It is hard to pick a favorite!
They still reside in our movable chicken tractor, but they are allowed total free-ranging during the day. Although they look like adults, they are still small, therefore would make easy prey for hawks. Luckily, we have a big muscadine vine near the tractor. They spend 90% of their time hiding and exploring under the vine jungle. I feel the current success of their survival has to do with the cover the vines give. Summer in Alabama is hot and humid, but they are living their best life enjoying all the lush greens and fat bugs this season has to offer!
