Chickens, Ducks and Guinea

​Looking for hens or roosters for your own flock?  We may have what you are looking for.
Pick up at farm by appointment only.  We do not go to swaps and try to keep a closed flock. 
Our flock is wormed regularly for parasites and during this time we don't sell those eggs.  

Prices for  adult chickens start $15 and up based on age, sex and breed.  Discount for 6 or more. We have varied ages of chicks some are frizzles (they go fast). On our farm we raise Cochin, Polish, Sultan, Aracauna and Easter Eggers.   

We sell limited straight run chicks of: Cochin, Araucana and Easter Eggers 

All our poultry free range during the day and in coop at night.
