Spring 2015

Posted by Momma Hen on Mar-29-2015

Spring is here & the girls are hard at work!

We’re getting about 1 dozen eggs daily. Check out our eggs & coop!

COOP

Our present flock consists of 17 hens and a beautiful rooster, named ‘Chief’. Our hens are all Americanas, which lay pale blue & green eggs and sometimes a light brown one.  Chief our rooster, is a Black Copper Maran- very colorful. As far as rooster’s go, he’s well behaved. Though we are not certified organic because of the paperwork and expense for that official certification, we feed them nothing but organic feed and table scraps of which the majority is organic.

Chief

Cheers!!

Tiny egg

Posted by Farmer John on Oct-11-2010

Wow! I am so guilty. Have not posted anything for 1 year. Really, I have no excuse. Absolutely none. I can only reason that time speeds by at a lightening pace & I find many other things to do. Regardless of my lame excuses, I can only say that it’s a rainy Sunday & I’ve found time to do some blogging.

We now have 17 hens + 1 very impressive rooster (Hector the 2nd). They are out there eating like royalty and laying very few eggs… We found a new feed from a local NW company. Scratch & Peck. Rather than pellet form feed, this is a mixture of natural grains & seeds. I would eat the stuff. (actually am..indirectly. Which is always the main point.) The winter weather has greatly slowed the egg production out there & it’s hurting the budget. I’ve got my loyal customers begging for eggs. Well, if the girls don’t step it up out there by early Spring, I’m afraid heads may roll.

We’ve decided not to purchase more hens this Spring. We are considering purchasing a couple of turkeys, in preparation of November festivities. Will keep you posted on how that may all work out.

Check out the smallest egg ever!
