Quality vs Quantity
Why not just buy from a hatchery? Why buy here and pay a little bit more? Because you are getting more value for your dollar by supporting farming. I stopped buying eggs from the store because not only are they a very poor substitute for a REAL fresh egg, they cause undue suffering to the laying hens who are kept in confinement. Hatchery birds are kept much in the same way. Buying from big retailers and hatcheries, the hens suffer and you are generally getting an inferior chick(baby). When chicks are born on our farm they have better immunity, fed a customized diet, and socialized well. We find there is a lot of misinformation out there and a lot of people claiming to be experts so we compile the information and do our best to use what we think will work, if not we go back and try something else. We are new farmers so education is important to us. We turn to our mentors and experts for information and help not google. Rare and Heritage Breeds require special care in order to perform, we apply those principals they were bred for so we can provide our customers superior birds.
