As a family we have been keeping chickens since spring of 1993. We love to eat their eggs, enjoy their antics and appreciate how they keep the bug populations in check and help keep the front meadow mowed down.
Currently, we have 11 hens including the following breeds: Ameraucana, Dominique, Cuckoo Marans, Buff Orpington, Light Brahma and Ancona. They range in age from 1- 4 years.
We keep them in their coop at night and during the day, move them on to our meadow enclosed in an electric fence. We move the fence as the girls eat the grass.
