Chickens on the Farm

We never posted videos of our chickens before. Here’s a couple of videos showing them doing what they do best, scratching the ground and eating.

Taking care of the chickens has been a lot of fun and very rewarding. Even the kiddo gets involved and collects eggs for us. Her school invention this year, she made a belt designed to carry a 6 pack of eggs back from the coop.

With the 8 hens we have, we get from 6-9 eggs a day. They are fed a local organic grain blend daily. Scraps, greens and grass clippings are all supplements along with any foraging for bugs. Mondays are usually big eggs after getting the weekend grass clippings.

Enjoy the videos!
