As the calendar pages turn, it’s remarkable how swiftly the time has passed—it’s already February 2nd! Reflecting on my earlier announcement, I’m excited to reiterate that a delightful array of birds is scheduled to arrive this spring, a curated selection that we’ve been anticipating with eagerness. Our soon-to-be bustling homestead will welcome the vividly varied cacophony of ducks, the resounding gobbles of turkeys, and the familiar cluck of chickens; each addition marking a new chapter in our sustained drive towards self-sufficiency and connection with nature.
I’ve been heartened by the community’s response thus far—a number of you have already reached out with expressions of interest concerning the chickens, signaling not just a desire for farm-fresh produce, but also a shared vision of supporting local, wholesome agriculture.
To streamline this process and ensure that no one misses out on the opportunity to bring home these feathered offerings, I’ve crafted a dedicated order form that simplifies the way in which you can place your requests.
Whether you’re considering chickens for their tireless egg production, the ducks for their charming demeanor, or perhaps the turkeys as a centerpiece for festive celebrations, this is a moment to act. Reflect on the joys that these creatures will bring to your home and let this be a testament to the ethos of community-supported, sustainable living.
So, for those who find their curiosity piqued or their commitment renewed, reach out and let us know. The window is closing, but there’s still a chance to be part of this experience—I did not mention before, but I may end up having chicks that you can raise for eggs as well. These would be of the Delaware variety as I have been extremely pleased with not only their egg production and meat but their overall hardiness in winter. These birds do seem like a great fit for the small homesteader.
I anticipate prices staying somewhat the same as in years past. You could calculate $3.50 a pound and possibly processing fee. The exception being turkeys they will more than likely be straight by the pound.
