Our hens are fed certified organic feed, food from the farm, and they're pastured on the farm in their chicken tractors
....... their WHAT??? What's a chicken tractor? It's a bottomless, moveable pen, which provides shelter from the rain, roosting poles, nest boxes and protection from predators. We move them every few days to new grass, to give the hens access to fresh pasture, bugs, weeds and seeds. They, in turn, reduce the insect and weed population and fertilize the soil as they go along. We love it! Over the years, we've gone through several iterations of chicken tractors, and have converted our portable pens to 'Hummers'- fancy, aluminum, lightweight tractors that move around much more easily than our old heavy wood pens which rot in just a couple of seasons in our humid climate. Easy-Garden makes the units.
Our first flock of happy hens began laying in November 2004. We add some new chicks each year, and cull our roosters and older hens. We carry Countryside Organics certified organic feed, available for purchase in 50-lb bag quantities-- please contact us for pricing and availability.
Our assortment of hens ensures that your eggs will include several shades of brown, white, green or blue and colored/tinted eggs, in every size imaginable. A surprise every time!
