Egg Gathering & Storage

Eggs are gathered at least two times every day. There are enough nesting boxes with enough privacy to the chicken laying the egg. This element is often overlooked, but privacy is important to a laying chicken in order for her to be stress free and in turn produce eggs more often.

Nesting boxes are cleaned often and hay is changed every few days to keep eggs clean.

Chicken Feed Delivery

The delivery of chicken feed is done every week. The feed is fresh and we are using different types of grains depending on what works better based on the age. When young, we feed them more corn and later, more barley, wheat and commercial feed. The grounds around the coop have insects and greenery that are needed for their omnivore diet.

Coop Construction

Most people still build coops the old way. They make coops too low, too small, put the wrong roosting bars and provide a hard to clean place. No wonder their chickens delay as much as they can going into the coop to sleep at night and have issues with fleas and lice. We have studied and asked specialists and have come up with portable, yet sturdy and easy to put together setups. We make sure that our coops provide the chickens with the safety and space they need. Coops are also made to allow for portability when possible and easy to clean.
