We only feed our hens organic feed from the day they are born. Organic feed is included with every rental.

HOW MANY EGGS WILL THEY LAY?
With 2 hens you will get about 1 dozen eggs per week. Our coops are designed to house up to 4 hens and with each one laying 6 days a week that's 2 dozen eggs from Monday to Sunday! That should be more than enough for the family, and if you're feeling generous, the neighbors too :)
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RAISING CHICKENS?
You may not know this but chickens have amazing personalities. They will come when called, let you pick them up, let you rock them to sleep on your lap (especially on the swing-set) and will follow you around the backyard while you're gardening. They are also natural composters! They will eat all of your unwanted table scraps and will turn them into delicious and nutritious eggs. They're great at pest control as the hens actively seek out spiders, bees, beetles, stinkbugs and even ticks!
