Fowl Play is exactly right!
We don't ever remember as kids being so fascinated by
CHICKENS!! (- "OMG" doesn't cut it - we LOVE em!!)
The everyday antics & feather-busting fun the Riverdale
Ridge henny-pennies have is a barrel of laughs!
They provide us not only with sinfully delicious eggs daily, and juicy & tender chicken for the freezer when needed; but sometimes to our dismay, many have become little feathery friends! (- We can't help it, they are so lovable!! Our layers stay with the farm their entire life!)
They live together, eat together, roost together, and love to scratch around the farm together- looking for new adventures -and can be pretty comical as they tend to be curious about anything that's new in their surroundings.
We've even had a couple of the hens who have decided they need a bit more privacy when laying their eggs. . . and you can imagine how hard we laughed when we discovered
that they were laying the eggs in the old outhouse! Yes,
we said OUTHOUSE!
Fortunately, the outhouse has not been in use
for over 30-some years and we keep the door slightly open so we don't have to worry that they become "stuck" in the john!
Meat chickens must be reserved by June in order to be available in September or October. Please submit your reservations, as soon as possible, so we have a good idea of how many we need to raise on our fresh green pastures throughout the summer.
Please go to the "CSA Sign Up Sheet" tab to order your chicken and eggs. Thank you.
