Meet Ru – the chicken farmer. Ru joined the farm in June of this year. His days are busy with feeding the chickens, bedding their sheds up with new straw each day to keep them warm and comfortable at night. He is also responsible for caring for the baby chicks in the broodery, keeping them warm and well fed until they are ready to move into larger sheds surrounded by organic pasture. It is hard to imagine that any other chickens live as well as his Organic Devonshire Golds.
