Free Range Chickens
We have 60 chickens and 3 roosters to look after the girls. Chicken breeds are:
- Rhode Island Red
- Golden Sex Links
- Black Sex Links
- Barred Rock
- Easter Egger (lays coloured eggs: blue / green)
- Our own crossbreed between those above
Plus 2019 additions:
- Cuckoo Maran (lays very dark brown eggs)
- Silver Laced Wyandotte
- Golden Laced Wyandotte
- Light Brahma
Our chickens are free range. We feed them vegetables, non-GMO chicken feed and they have access every day to the big run with a lot of grass, bugs etc. With portable electric fencing our girls are getting new extended run every few months.
Chicks. A couple times a year (summer time) we are hatching our own chicks using broody hens. In 2020 next hatch of the chicks are expected on June 3d and we will put notice about this on the main page of the web-site.
Our chickens are very friendly. If you will stop by at the Farm during our open hours (June-September), you can see them and feed them the treats (temporarily – no petting for farm animals).
