Laying Hens

Organic Free Run Eggs

We are so excited to be able to offer organic free run eggs.  We never stop hearing how great farm fresh eggs are.  Eggs are a huge hit and sell out fast.  We started out with 20 ready-to-lay Red Sex Link hens .  We soon realized that this was not even nearly enough.  Luckily we purchased 60 day old Barred Rocks in the middle of June.  Barred Rocks are a dual purpose bird.  So our plan was to harvest the roosters and save the hens for future layers.  We were hoping for mostly hens as eggs are so popular.  Unbelievable we ended up with 58 hens and 2 roosters.  So around the begining of November when our new birds start to lay we will have lots of eggs available.  The kids also hatched 10 Araucana eggs in a incubator in the spring.  What an exciting project for them.  Exciting for me too as the Araucana hens have amazing colored eggs.  Araucana hens are known as the easter egg hens.  So coming up soon we will have green eggs,  blue eggs,  pink eggs,  and who knows what beautiful colors.  We will see soon as the Araucanas should start laying soon.  They hens always produce the same color egg.

Our hens are always provided with clean fresh water.  They have an endless supply of grain from Homestead Organics.  Our hens are happy free run hens with plenty of space to move around.  They never pick on each other because the are so content with their lives.  The kids always pick them fresh grass and growing grains to offer them.
