Production Brown egg layers, shipped at 15-24 weeks old. Each month we start a new batch of Red Stars. Red Stars are the gold standard in brown egg production. Red Stars will start laying at around 22-23 weeks. They lay a large brown egg and are an easy to raise bird.

Our fully vaccinated chicks are kept in the brooder for 3-4 weeks depending on the outside temperature. When they arrive, they are given Gro Gel, warm water with Quick Chick and a little sugar dissolved. They are fed with an all-natural, GMO free feed. Around the time that they start jumping on the side boards of the brooders, we move them onto pasture. In the pasture they have free access to fresh grass, weeds, seeds and bugs. As you can see in the picture, they really eat the grass down.

Nearby we have a local gristmill (http://www.homesteadgristmill.com/) that mills locally grown organic wheat, corn and oats – as well as purchased organic blue corn. We supplement their pasture diet with a daily supplement of bran left over from the milling. The combination of various organic grains and corn makes a healthy addition to their foraging.

As the grass slows it's growing in the fall, we supplement their feed with greens from our 3 greenhouses and 1 field garden.
