Chickens were our gateway animal. While I've always wanted
to live on a farm, chickens secured it for me. We still have one
of our original chickens from years ago, and have since
succumbed to chicken math.
Chicks and limited hatching eggs are available starting early
spring through early-fall for the following breeds.
Prices are for chicks. Hatching eggs can be found in our store.

Khione Chickens© ($5) - These are our own unique breed of
chicken that we are developing. Our goal is a chicken that is a
good dual purpose bird with a small comb, large consistent
eggs, handles inclement weather well, forages well but
remains friendly, and goes broody. We are aiming for the
perfect homestead chicken for our CO environment. Note: hatching eggs are not currently available. Chicks and older birds that don't make the cut, but will still make great homestead birds, will have limited availability.
Silkies ($6) - Our silkies are much better than your farm store quality. Colors available will be Blue and Splash.
Silver Marans ($6) - We're excited we got a beautiful pair of Silver Marans. I'm excited to see their egg color and will update the gallery when she starts laying. I'm so impressed with the size of the rooster, I'm going to add him to the breeding rotation of our Khione flock.
Icelandics ($6) - Icelandics are a landrace breed from Iceland. They were bred to be good foragers, adaptable to harsh conditions, good mothers, and good layers even in winter.
Our Icelandics are from Hlesey and Husatoftir lines. - we are getting away from Icelandics and have our breeding flock available for sale.
Turkeys ($8) - Blue Slate / Narraganset mix.
