newest flock begins production

We collected eggs from our youngest flock of hens yesterday. We took shipment on them last fall as they were just a day old. In the brooder and then into field pens over this tough winter, we were surprised to see eggs! Their pens don't even have nest boxes yet!

Some of our older flocks are not yet producing eggs. If that continues, we will have stewing hens available for sale. Lovely stock and chicken salad from those birds!

Dogs are not allowed in the commercial kitchen. Luna does not yet understand this and asks to please let her in!

After this, she got out of the fenced area on the farm and had a bit of a run through neighbors yards. A bit of a treat and she jumped back in the truck and came home with us. Stay with us girl!
