The Broilers Move Out on Pasture

Broiler chicken tractor

It was a big day for the broiler chicks today - they moved out of the brooders in the garage and into their new chicken tractor.

With a bit of Papa Bear's engineering skills, two five-gallon buckets were transformed into feeders and waterers.

Some PVC pipe, tubing and these poultry nipples will provide lots of clean, fresh water to the chickens every day.

The peeps seemed pretty happy with their new digs.
