So amazing to see the positive impact of our chickens on our land!
The only difference between the low quality field in the background and the lush area in the foreground (where my daughter is almost buried!) is that we had our laying chickens’ mobile coop parked in the foreground area for about 3-4 weeks.
We have seen some marked pasture improvement with our chicken tractors. These are our mobile pens where we raise our broiler chickens. These “tractors” are moved 2-3 times a day.
As you can see, in the wake of the chicken tractors, the pasture really had a positive impact.
But it was nothing compared to a more intense impact of 3-4 weeks from our mobile chicken coop (a.k.a. the EggMobile). We did no re-seeding. We added no soil amendments. We didn’t water this area. The only difference was that the EggMobile was parked here!
We can have healthy domestic animals and quality farm products and profitable farms AND heal the land in the process.
It takes time and intentionality… but it is possible!
