We have a flock of 35 laying hens which produce eggs to fulfill our carnivorous CSA packages. Our flock consists of many breeds including Delaware, Rhode Island Red, Golden Buff, Barred Plymouth Rock, Buff Orphington, and Welsummer. The laying hens are raised in a 3,000 square foot run in which they are rotationally grazed. They roost and lay within their spacious 80-square foot coop, complete with two front windows and translucent roofing allowing our girls to sleep under the stars. The hens are looked after by two Rhode Island Red roosters, Chester and Lester, who have fended off many predators including foxes, raccoons, chicken hawks, and the neighbor’s golden doodle. Our eggs are available for $4 per dozen at our farm and at the farmer’s markets we attend.
