Our chickens are happy, healthy and ridiculously spoiled, and we feel you can taste it in our eggs. We keep a wide variety of breeds- Cream Legbars, Black Copper Marans, Ameraucanas, Easter Eggers, Wellsummers and more. Our chickens bring us a lot of joy, and we never get tired of watching them and their antics.
We were very excited to hatch out these lovely birds last year. They lay a nice large blue egg, and are very consistent so far. This rare breed chicken also produces chicks that are sexable at birth, which will make them a big part of our breeding program going into the future. We currently have 10 hens and one rooster in their own space as we work on establishing a solid breeding program with them.
We have two lovely Blue Wheaten Ameraucana hens that we flew in from White Mountains Ranch in CA. It was very important to us to have purebred, heritage Ameraucanas that would lay a true blue egg. We have recently added some very special splash and lavender Paul Smith Ameraucanas to our flock as well and will continue to expand on our Ameraucana breeding program to produce our own fantastic Ameraucanas
Our three Welsummer hens, Henny, Penny and Lenny, came from a lovely lady in NH who specializes in the breed. Penny and Lenny are from the John Hall line, which is a well known line originating in VT. All three have proven to be great layers of wonderful brown speckled eggs.
Black Copper Marans
Our “three French hens”, Bellatrix, Narcissa, and She Who Shall Not Be Named, came from a small farm in central Maine. These hens are prized for their dark, chocolate brown eggs, that are often featured in French cuisine. We will be adding more of these to our flock this year.
Bean, our one Delaware, is by far the smartest of our chickens, and the top hen in the flock. She is also a great layer of a lovely brown egg.
We have a wide variety of Easter Eggers due to our fabulous Ameraucana rooster. These hens give us such fun surprises with the variety of colored eggs they give us.
