Adding Chickens to My Flock

It’s always so exciting when new chickens arrive at the farm.

I’ve been raising chickens for a long time. Not only do I love keeping them for their fresh, delicious eggs, but I also enjoy their company and learning about their many different breeds and personalities. Recently, my friend Ari Katz, a young and passionate poultry breeder and exhibitor, gifted me with three beautiful Barred Rock chickens. I love Barred Rocks and have had many over the years. The Barred Rock, or Plymouth Rock, is a popular Heritage Breed that was developed in New England in the early 1800s - best loved for its strength, its vitality, and its egg-laying abilities. I am so glad this trio is now part of my flock.
