Our beautiful red laying hens live out on pasture. They supplement their diet with seeds, bugs, and even the occasional frog. They lay eggs in the morning and roost at night in our mobile chicken coop. These are the best eggs you'll ever taste, with yolks so orange they're almost red. Eggs are sold on CSA pickup days for $4.50 a dozen.
The mobile chicken coop was built to increase the efficiency of our pasture management. It holds 300 gallons of water, so our days of hauling water to the farthest reaches of pasture are over.
Room to Roam
While we do set up temporary paddocks for the hens using electric net fencing, they are moved every few days and have plenty of room to safely roam.
