Our pets make our breakfast!
Our laying hens are comprised mainly of Rhode Island Red, a true American breed, that have proven themselves as aggressive foragers and egg producers. The hens enjoy leisurely days chasing bugs and snipping seed heads. The eggs are rich in flavor with a dark yellow yolk.
We are raising an old American breed of Delaware chickens this year to build our laying hen flock and provide meat. These dual purpose chickens are breed for high egg quality and meat production. The entire flock is feed non-GMO feed as their daily ration.
We keep our laying hens for two and a half years for egg production. After that, they don’t lay very much so we process them for stewing hens. They are best cooked slow and long for tenderness. We prefer these birds for rich, delicious chicken stock. Stewing Hens will be available in Fall 2014.
