Chrissy McFarren sent in this report:
"We love our egg layers!
They provide our customers and ranch guests delicious eggs and they help us get the garden ready.
A couple months before we will be planting, we bring our mobile coop into the garden and we let the flock till the garden for this coming season.
They are fast little tillers and they fertilize as they go!
Note-If you want a more intensive tiller, say for taking raw ground and
turning it into a garden plot, try pigs!"
