    Hello BYC,

    MYTFARMS from Colorado checking in here. Found some awesome threads on Google helping me with ramping up my egg production. Looks like a very knowledgeable community in here, I am eager to learn.

    I also run a market garden and a Registered Angus cowherd, more at home on Ranchers.net, but looking to expand my mind with new learnin' here!

    Thank you! Could you point me in the direction of any posts regarding how to free range chickens but keep them protected? Wanting to use a "chicken tractor" design of some sort or a temporary pen so they can help me clean up and sanitize cattle corrals.

    G’Day from down under mytfarms [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and links, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
