Feathered Friends

It’s our feathered friends who Rule the Roost around here.  We raise heritage breed chickens including French Black Copper Marans, Orpingtons and Welsummers.  Our six peacocks run the place and our several gunieas keep the noise going.  There’s also our lone Sebastopol goose, Lucy Goosey who raised 10 ducks who still stay with her.  I call them a Flaggle (Flock + Gaggle).  Most of our chickens just roam the farm and sleep, and lay eggs, wherever they choose.  Our several dogs keep them safe from predators so many of the chickens choose to sleep outside in the bushes or on the ground, instead of in the coop.

    • There’s no minimum order if you are picking them up. For shipping, it depends on weather and distance. Normally it is 12 but can I ship smaller amounts of 8 if weather is warm. Also, I’m so sorry it took so long to respond. I didn’t know there had been a comment awaiting response. I’m still trying to figure out how to use the blog and all of its options. As you can see, I haven’t been updating it as I had hoped. Just too busy with life on a farm and one that is open for tours.

  2. I am interested in some of your French copper marans. I live in Louisiana i think only a few hours away.
    My children and I enjoy our chickens and will want to add 10 or so more chicks in the fall.

    • Kathy, I’ve had a waiting list for the BCM for most of the year and will start a new one for 2013 the beginning of the year. Since you live nearby, it would be best to just come visit the farm and pick them up. I always have left overs from each hatch so I have them of all ages available for pickup.

      • My family has a property in Woodville for hunting. I have been trying to get chickens for a while now to take home to New Orleans. Do you have any chicks right now?

      • I’m sorry for the delay in responding. I haven’t kept up with this blog page. I should start having BCM chicks, available for pick up at the farm, beginning the end of March or first of April.
