Chickens and Eggs

Brrrrrr!!! It’s gotten cold again, and this means our hens are not laying many eggs. We are SOLD OUT of eggs for the next couple of weeks.

 

Traveling Hen

All of our chickens are allowed to free-range outside on our farm property on all but the coldest of days. Our laying hens will lay their egg first thing in the morning and are then ready to go outside and catch bugs, chase worms,  have dust baths and graze grass until it’s time for bed again when the sun goes down.

Our meat chickens go outside at the first hint of sunrise and prefer to stay outside eating grass and clover until they get their supper. They never stray far from the farm and know to return when I call them.

In order to keep them safe from predators, they are kept inside their roomy chicken house at night or when we are away from the farm for the day. They are fed chicken ration daily and they also get extra tomatoes, lettuce, and other treats from our vegetable garden along with goat’s milk.

As it is illegal in Canada to feed any kind of growth hormones to poultry, all of the chicken ration we feed is 100% hormone and antibiotic free.

Free Range Chicken Cuts and Pricing

Our farm is limited in how many meat birds we can raise per year so it’s best to get your name on our list as soon as possible. Our demand is always more than our supply!
