Chat with the Chicken Matchmaker
Sugar-Feather farm is the best! I feel so lucky to have found them. I’m a novice chicken owner and wanted to add to my small flock after two of my beloved hens were killed by a bear. I booked a consultation and had a long discussion about which breeds are right for me. I got three fully feathered females, a Lyonnaise, Orpington and Bieldfelder and could not be happier. I was promptly notified of when they would ship and everyone arrived at the post office safely and in great shape.
Once I had my lovely new girls Sugar-Feather’s hen guru answered all my questions about keeping youngsters and integrating them with my mature hens and rooster. I only regret I don’t have more room for lots of hens, I would love to get more heritage breeds.
I’m so glad to be part of the Sugar Feather family. I can’t say enough about what a great experience this has been.
