We are eggstastic (sorry, just had to put that pun in!) that our chooks and ducks are back in the egg business (sorry no extras). For some reason, this winter (could be because of old age or extreme weather conditions) we weren’t getting any eggs – nadda, zippo, zilch! Jordanne had to curtail her baking (no chocolate brownies – sniff) and just to have “spare” eggs on hand we picked up a dozen from the South Pasadena farmers market. Sorta felt weird buying eggs, but at least they were from a local source.
The older (four plus year old) ducks & chickens are passed their prime laying years and the new batch of ducks should be laying — any day now, ladies! We’ll be bringing in a new batch of chicks come Spring so that we can maintain a decent egg production flow here on the urban homestead.
Jordanne’s collected a few local folks who’d like to get in our chick order. Boy, I can still recall the time (a few years back) that sis and I raised over 150 baby chicks. Whew, that was some operation! Backyard chickens were hot, and folks were clamoring on the backyard chicken bandwagon and wanted a local source of naturally raised pullets. Going to keep things much simpler and smaller this time around – for our sanity!
We still meet people who have said that Jordanne’s chickens were the healthiest (and friendliest) they’ve ever had. And now that she’s put together her super amazing Natural Poultry Formula – you can get your Spring chicks off to a healthy start.
Received a positive phone testimony yesterday. Lady said that Jordanne’s selected poultry supplements drastically improved her two sick chickens!!!
Can’t leave the critter compound without snapping a least a few dozen photos of their sometimes crazy antics.
