As it stands now, the plan is to get meat chicks (color rangers) late August. They will be moved to tractors and then late September my layers (buckeyes) will arrive. Those go to the barn and will free range while the kids are in school. I was thikning, it's possible it might just be less work to put all of the birds together in the barn and skip the whole tractor step, since the property is large enough for all of the birds. But they'll be different sizes. Is that even possible or is it an exercise in futility? If so, is there a better way to do this?
