First thing’s first: chickens are crazy awesome. We’re having a hard time understanding why people almost universally gave up back yard chickens between the 1940’s and today. They are fun to watch, and they make two of nature’s most delicious proteins: eggs and chicken. Because of the crazy-go-nuts regulations regarding selling eggs off-site, we won’t really be selling eggs this year.
Part of what makes the chickens so awesome is watching their different personalities. We ordered a mixed rare breed package of chicks. We’ll be updating this page as we confirm the breeds of each chick. For now, we’re pretty sure we’ve got at least one each of these:
- White-laced Red Cornish
- Americanas (green eggs!)
- Modern game birds (ie: scrawny little birds that are pretty entertaining)
- White-crested Black Polish
- Golden Polish
- Silver-penciled Rock
- Black and White Langshans
- Partridge Cochin
- Cuckoo Maran (or possibly Barred Rock)
We’ll update this page with more photos and links. Specific info you’d like to see? Ask for it in the comments or check out our blog posts about chickens.
