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 first hatch of the chicks are expected in June-July 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, feed them the treats or even pet them (kids are welcome!).
