We raise heritage dual purpose chickens that lay a range of colored eggs. Our flock is 50 strong. We started our flock with Ancona but have since added Buff Orpington, Dominique, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Red Blue Laced Wyandotte, Speckled Sussex, Welsummer, Black Astralorp, Rhode Island Red, Ameraucana and “one exotic chick”. Waiting to see what that one turns out to be!
We currently have one rooster that we hope will help our flock grow naturally. Best of intentions….we’ll see!!
They are housed in a coop with an attached run. Each morning they are let out of the run and each evening they are locked up. Keeping them safe from raccoon, coyote, opossum and other predators that would just love to get to our birds. During the day they forage, scratch, peck and sunbath in their fenced in yard.
They are supplemented with NON-GMO feed from a local feed mill. We do not give them antibiotics, growth hormones or steroids.
Nothing beats a farm fresh egg!! From the yoke color and fluffiness to the flavor and nutritional value.

Slow growing at a more moderate rate. Allowing time for their bodies to adjust.
Less leg and health issues due to this slow growth.
More yellow omega 3 fat & less saturated fat then fast growing breeds.
Produce tender, flavorful, succulent meat with more texture/muscle meat. Not mushy and soft.

We are old school.
We look for breeds that are not main stream, have more flavor and are more humane to raise. Which usually means more time to raise them to market size.
Raised in our pasture, feasting on fresh red clover, orchard grass and all the bugs they can find.
Supplemented on NON-GMO feed from Bagdad Roller Mills.
