Mary is our blue egg laying chicken. Mary and Connie are our Ameraucana hens. If you slur their names together a little, you will get the joke.
We raise chickens for eggs and meat. The meat chickens are handled in 3 shifts per season so that we have enough in the freezer, but never have too many running around the yard at any one time. Our hens stick around a few years, so we name them and have more time to get to know their little personalities.
Our hens are pets that live outside and give us an egg each day!
