A sign of Spring: the Deck Family Farm Laying Hen trailers have been uprooted from their hilltop, winter-time location, and have now been moved to the lower pasture, where they will be moved twice a week until October. Many hands made this happen, from fixing broken flooring and doors, to moving the hens, cleaning the nest boxes, organizing egg collecting in their new location, setting up waters and feeders, and help getting one of the trailers un-stuck from the wet-spot in the middle of the pasture.
