The Meyer Farms Ladies
We have a small flock of chickens at the farm. Currently, we have about 30 ladies roaming around. All of the chickens are hens of a laying age with the exception of one which is our Bantam Mille Fleur rooster which you can hear in the mornings.
Our chickens live in a very large fenced run just a short walk from the farmstand. In addition to the organic feed mix that we provide to the ladies, they have daily unlimited access to sunshine, grass, weeds, seeds, bugs and the occasional mouse. We also provide them with some of our fresh organic greens and veggies too. Mint goes into the chicken coop and the laying boxes, as it helps ward off mites, and is helpful in promoting egg laying.
