Farm Update

We are gearing up for D-Day…duck processing day!    It’s already been quite a trip getting all the necessary licenses, board approvals, water tests, and trainings.   And since this is the first time we are actually processing birds ourselves (and ducks are one of the trickiest poultry to process), this is going to be quite a learning experience.    Other than that, things are going well at the Movement Aviary Farm!

Pekin ducklings have become giants and probably already weigh 5 Lbs!

Our Americana chicks have been living in a small A-frame up near the house and will now be moved into the back fields to join the flock of layers.

0801170950a (1)After growing up on pasture, the female quails have been moved into laying pens, where their eggs roll out – making them easy to collect and perfectly clean.

Our goslings now own this farm!    Want something, ask them!    Here they are showing off their under water swimming skills.

And our 4-week old turkeys arrived yesterday!    Since they lived indoors their wholes lives, they love it here!!
