Chickens

Our Golden sex-linked chickens live a life of luxury with free ranging and a yard built large enough for five times as many birds.  Matt has also built them several clever little toys and hiding holes around the farm, so there is never any tail-pecking or fighting in the group.  Each bird has plenty of room to do its own thing and doesn’t get bored enough to cause problems.

We should have several dozen eggs per week for sale.  If you’ve never tried farm-fresh eggs, you’re missing out.  You’ll never go back to store-bought!
