Pastured Eggs


Our hens are provided with a full ration of locally produced grains along with plenty of minerals and oyster shell for the calcium they need.  They reside in the "Cluck Hut" and the "Chicken Clipper" at night and are allowed out every day to stretch their wings and scratch for snacks.  During the warm season, we have a group of hens following behind each group of pigs for fly and bug control.  During the colder seasons when flies aren't a concern, we rotate them into areas in and around vegetable fields where they can help reduce the weed seed in our vegetables and rejuvenate and fertilize.

  1. We had chickens years ago and a milk cow and during the winter we would give them fresh milk and they layed all winter. We live in Lapwai, Idaho.
