Thank you and we look forward to meeting you at the farm or our home for egg pickup!
Here are some pictures of our farm for your enjoyment and a little poultry education.
Here are our tractors. They are constantly moving distributing the goodness of fertilizer as needed. We’re going to be planting alfalfa in the spring. Currently the chickens pasture in bermuda a couple yards away from where they sleep.
Balancing between the tractors and the pasture. This is a beautiful Danish Brown Leghorn (pronounced leggern.)
These four jockey for position nightly with each trying to roost in the highest spot. Each night we carefully get them to step up onto a board then bring them down and into the tractor where they are safe from coyotes. It is quite an arm workout when two step onto the board at once.
Here a few of the girls going over to the pasture. The light chicken is a Buff Orpington and the rest are the Danish Brown Leghorns. The Danish Browns are an extremely thrifty chicken (read: eat lots of green and little of our expensive organic feed) and they lay very frequently and regularly. They are a heritage breed that is the basis for the White Leghorn which is what many commercial egg operations use.
