Chickens were our gateway animal. While I've always wanted
to live on a farm, chickens secured it for me. We still have a
couple 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 mid-summer 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 and a very limited number of chicks will be sold. Starting 2020 some started birds will be available on a limited basis.
Silkies ($6) - Silkies will not be available until 2020. Colors available will be Blue/Black/Splash (BBS).
Sizzles ($4) - Available 2020.
Mix a silkie and a frizzled bantam cochin and you get Sizzles. Some will look like silkies with normal feathers (smooth sizzle), some look like normal silkies, and some are silkies with frizzled silkie feathers, and some are silkies with frizzled normal feathers. All are adorable!
Icelandics ($8) - 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.
Turkeys ($10) - Blue Slate turkeys are available. Royal Palm turkeys available 2020.
