Chick tractors and orchard

I apologize to anyone who drives past and thinks our chickens aren't free-range: a fox has killed 25% of our free-range hens, so we have some in chicken tractors in the garden (As soon as he is taken care of, they'll be turned loose). The young birds are also in chicken tractors while they're growing. Not only are the babies prey to foxes and hawks, but also dogs and cats.

One of the first chicken tractors I built for between-row chicken weeding and bug control for young chickens.

Part of the flock.

The orchard is a work in progress-clearing out around the trees.
