We are excited to be starting a new chapter at the farm, where we have a new batch of chicks that have come in today, Isa Brown, with the learnings from the last 2.5 years of business.
The changes that we have put in place:
- Increased bio-security with a dry lime bath on entry into the brooder
- Testing a new “sigiri” in addition to the pots
- Using newspapers as a bio-layer over the coffee husks, that will disintegrate and mix with the litter
- Contracting with an experienced poultry brooding services company to provide a dedicated person to raise the birds from day-old to about 6 weeks, depending on the progress and learnings that we have had.
