It’s Chicken Time!

With Farmers Markets wrapping up a successful season, we now have more time to focus on our primary business, eggs!

We are now raising some new chicks of various breeds. We have received 100 chicks, and will be selling 50 of them. The additional 50 chicks will be kept for “insurance” in case of emergency on the sold chicks; as well as future layers to provide eggs for our fantastic customers! We get all of our chicks from Griff’s Feed & Seed in Colusa, California.

The breeds we received are Buff Orpington, Brahma, Silver Laced Wyandott, and Gold Laced Wyandott. We raise the chicks until they are approximately 6 weeks of age at which time they are considered “feathered out” and no longer require a heat lamp (unless weather requires otherwise!). We will be selling these chicks for $7 each. We can accommodate keeping the chicks longer for an additional $1/week.

On top of everything else going on, school is back in session, and we are preparing for the holiday season. We are getting into a busy time for our business, and continue to make updates to our website and Facebook pages. For more information, please feel free to contact us or visit our Facebook page.
