How they are raised

"Why did the chicken cross the road?" Around here we jokingly answer, "to make Nicole late for work."

Our chickens arrive to Six Stone Jars Farm in a variety of ways. Some we purchase, some we incubate and hatch ourselves, and others are hatched in the coop under a brooding momma. We love variety on our farm, so we run a variety of breeds (and why the eggs we sell are multicolored). Leghorns, Orpingtons, Ameraucanas, Rhode Islands, and Wyandottes are only a few of the breeds that typically free range around here. Our chicken coop is built on an old utility trailer and of course therefore mobile. The trailer has a wire mesh floor, so their manure conveniently falls through and fertilizes our pasture as it is moved around. The coop has a solar powered and light sensor door, so even on mornings where we (the farmers) aren't moving too quickly still allows our hens to get out and start foraging at daybreak. Our laying hens literally have no cages or boundaries. They can scratch and peck for food as far as they are willing to walk, on both pasture and in adjoining woods. Although they are usually found close to the coop, flock, herd or livestock guard dogs for safety.
