Free Range Chickens
We have 58 chickens and 2 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
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 2019 first hatch of the chicks are expected in June 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 you can see them, feed them the treats or even pet them (kids are welcome!).
