Welcome to our Chicken Page

We are proud to announce we are affiliated with the BEST Automated Coop Door Opener on the market. 
Click on picture in link below to see video of how it works and 
how you can get yours today.  You won't have to worry about running home at dark anymore to protect your chickens from predators.

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

Prices for live chickens start $10 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 have Cochin, Polish, Old English, Leghorn, Sultan, Red Sex Link, Road Island Red, Americauna and Easter Eggers. 

We offer hatching eggs of all our breeds for $12 a dozen.  Please call to have them set a side for you in advance and breed; Cochin, Easter Eggers, Polish, Sultan and Red Sex Link.

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