HENS - PULLETS - ROOSTERS - 

TURKEYS - STRAIGHT RUNS 


Guinea Hens 

Although some people are against the idea of raising guinea fowls because of their reputation for being loud, there are many of advantages that may outshine the disadvantages. Read on for several benefits of having a flock of guineas.

1. Pest Control

Guineas originate from Africa where they spend their days with rhinos who don't mind their presence at all. They pick ticks and other bugs off of their thick skin that they can't reach themselves. And in return, the rhinos offer them protection from predators that could eat them.

On a farm, they continue this behavior by eating bugs off of the ground. Some people have said that they have seen them do the same thing to farm animals too. These fowl also catch and eat small snakes and other vermin, such as rats and mice. Another positive benefit of them scavenging for pests as a food source is that they get about 90 percent of their meals this way, so it costs less to feed them than other fowl who depend on grains for food.

2. Source of Food

Since guineas are not as protective of their eggs as chickens are, collecting them in the morning as a food source is fairly easy. The eggs are smaller than a chicken's egg, though. They also have a richer flavor. The guineas themselves are a food source too. Most people find that their meat is a little drier and leaner, so it tastes best when it is paired with foods that offer moisture to it. Guinea meat is lower in fat and calories, which makes it a heart-healthy choice of protein.

3. Easy to Multiply

Guineas produce about the same amount of eggs that a chicken does, and their gestation period is only one week longer. This means you can multiply them almost as fast as chickens if you want to. In as little as one month, a brood of tiny guineas will hatch. However, guinea mothers often forget about the eggs that they lay. They sit on them infrequently or abandon them completely to lay a new set of eggs somewhere else.

So if you want to have a larger flock of this fowl, you might have to help care for the eggs by putting them in an incubator as soon as they are laid. It is mostly younger guinea mothers that struggle the most in caring for their young this way.

4. Friends to Other Animals

For the most part, guinea fowl get along well with other animals if they are raised with them. This includes other types of fowl. However, if a rooster from a flock of chickens should happen to harass them during a season of mating, they will not fail to attack. So it is important to keep roosters away from guineas during this time.

5. Protection

It is difficult to sneak past a guinea without it alerting the other members of its flock with its loud call. They have been known to gang up on predators that are attempting to attack one them, so this helps to protect other animals on the property from being injured by a fox or weasel. Together, the fowl act as an alarm system for a property. In the wild, other animals listen for them as a sound off to potential predators who are nearby, and humans have learned to do the same thing.

For guinea to be used the most effectively in this way, a flock of more than six of them must be kept, and they cannot be caged up. Guineas are the happiest and the healthiest when they are allowed to roam freely. If a person should try to raise only one of them, it will usually die even if it is kept with other types of fowl.

Though, it should be noted that guineas are infamous for roaming past the area that they are supposed to stay in. To prevent this from occurring, it helps to have a fenced in place for them with a small coop for shelter from the elements. This makes guineas unsuitable for people living in urban area.

6. Fertilizer

When guinea fowl are allowed to roam about and eat insects at their leisure, they produce rich droppings as they go that fertilize areas of soil. Their droppings from barns or hen houses that they are kept in can also be collected for gardens for this purpose. Or they can be thrown directly into a compost pile.

7. Weed Control

Unlike chickens who are constantly getting into gardens and causing trouble, guinea fowl generally leave most planted areas alone. However, they do peck at weeds that they find since they like a little vegetation in their diet. If they are kept in a fenced in yard, they will keep it free from nuisance dandelions or ragweed. Just be sure to put fences a little bit wider than the extra garden plots, so vegetation won't be accessible to them. Occasionally, they will mistake small seedlings for weeds.

As you can see, guinea fowl are an excellent addition to a farm for many reasons. They offer protection from intruders, and they make a great source of food for your family. Guineas also help tend to the ground and keep pests away. Just be sure to keep a large flock of them. They get lonely by themselves. Since this type of fowl originates from Africa, they are more acclimated to warmer weather.

So if you live in a cold region, be sure to give them a heated shelter where they can stay warm and dry. They also need a source of fresh, clean water daily. And though they get most of their food from foraging, this is difficult to do during the winter season when many pests hibernate, so be prepared to offer more grains during this time of the year.

White Broiler Chick


Straight Run

If you are looking for a fast-growing meat bird, our White Broilers should be your first choice. Also known as Cornish Cross, Jumbo Cornish Cross, or Cornish Rock Cross, these chickens will be ready for processing in just seven to eight short weeks. This first-generation stock have been selected for fast feathering, rapid growth, optimal feed conversion ratios, and broad breasts.

These White Broilers are the same meat birds you find at your local grocery store, but by raising your own, you know you are eating the best quality bird out there. Process these birds at around 7 weeks for a 7-pound fryer, or around 10 weeks for a larger roaster. Processing these chickens even earlier, around 4 weeks, will result in a Cornish Game Hen, regardless of gender.



Red Broiler Chicks

 

Straight Run

The Red Broiler usually reaches butcher age at 10-12 weeks. More active than Cornish Rocks and do well on the range. Red Broilers have less leg problems than the fast growing strain, however will not attain the same size as the fast growing strain.


Silkie Chicks 

Cream Color Eggs

Straight Run

Silkies do tend towards broodiness and make wonderful mothers despite being rather poor layers. They are calm, friendly, trusting and rather lively birds which are unable to fly so can be kept with very low fencing and they also do very little damage to the garden. They begin laying around Christmas when the hen will happily sit on a clutch of eggs and will still go broody even if her eggs are removed! Silkies are frequently used as foster mothers for other hen's eggs.

They stop laying altogether during the summer months. They don't have waterproof feathers so they need to be kept in dry conditions but require little room so can be kept in smaller runs. They are rather susceptible to scaly leg but are robust little chickens and can withstand the cold very well. The black skinned and black boned silkie is considered a delicacy in China where they believe that the ground up bones have special healing properties. They have a lifespan of around 9 years and can be tamed and considered a real pet which makes them especially suitable for children.



Ameraucana Hen 


** Blue, Green & Pink Eggs **

he Ameraucana breed was derived from blue egg laying chickens, but they do not have the breeding problems inherent to Araucanas. In addition, rather than ear tufts, they have muffs and a beard, and are very hardy and sweet. They lay eggs in shades of blue, green and pink eggs. They even have blue (or โ€œslateโ€) legs.

Novogen Hens 

brown eggs

We are excited to offer Novogen Brown Chickens. Novogen Browns are a type of Red Sex-Link chicken. Novogen Brown Layers are healthy and robust birds and do very well in free range and pastured environments. They are hybrid crosses developed from Rhode Island Reds and White Leghorns.

Production: Novogen Brown Layers are top-notch producers of large to extra-large brown eggs. They are bred to be adaptable birds, thriving in a wide variety of conditions, whether kept in housing or on range. 

Novogens have excellent feed conversion and will lay strong shelled, high-quality eggs. These are fast maturing birds, already laying well at 20 weeks of age. You can expect 5 or more eggs per week per hen.

Temperament: Novogen Brown Layering Chickens are calm and easy to manage birds. 


White Leghorn Hens 

White Eggs

Leghorns are good layers of white eggs, laying an average of 280 per year and sometimes reaching 300โ€“320. The eggs are white and weigh a minimum 2 ounces

Jersey Giant Hens 

Brown Eggs

This is the original Jersey Giant developed in New Jersey in the late 19th century by crossing several of the large, dark Asiatic breeds. It is a super heavy bird even a little larger than the whites. It's black plumage has a beautiful green sheen, 

the eyes are dark brown, shanks and toes are black except for yellow skin showing on the bottoms of the feet. With the straight red comb and tremendous size it makes an unusually handsome variety for exhibition. Hens are good layers of brown eggs and especially persistent through cold weather.

Rhode Island Red Hens

Brown Eggs

Rhode Island Reds are a good choice for the small flock owner. Relatively hardy, they are probably the best egg layers of the dual purpose breeds.
