Several days after that Dan bolted the coop to the back of his tractor and drove it to a new, more central location, at the farm. The girls are now working 3 farm beds that will be planted later in the season with fall cabbages. Their first location was just in a fallow area. Now I feel they are being integrated into the farm process and are real workers. They are eating cover crop of oats, peas and vetch and this, along with their droppings will be turned under to nourish the soil for the cabbages. Each week the coop, and every few weeks the fencing, moves down the 150' long bed.
