These are my pullets.
They are black with a gold hackle and breast.
They are a hybrid laying hen that can lay 300+ eggs in a lifetime. They aren't broody and tend to have a calm, friendly personality. They are good feed converters and lay large brown eggs.
They will start laying in September, I hope.
These are the Pearl White Leghorn laying hens.
They're still laying strong, between 20-23 eggs a day.
Hens out grazing and grubbing.
As you can see by the skies, we're hoping for a good thundershower or two tonight.
While we wait, NumberOneSon is getting the haying equipment ready.

This is my rig.
Vermeer rake hooked on to the old JD 2520.
And here's the mower.

We're sure hoping that a good rain puts a halt to our start up.
We'd rather let the hay grow, but if it doesn't rain,
we're going after what we have.
Praying for rain.
“I will give you rain at the right time,
and the land will yield its produce,
and the trees of the field will bear their fruit.”
