My family lives on 5-acres in the beautiful East Mountain area east of Albuquerque, NM. Our place is currently owned by 5 mules, 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 cat. My husband, daughter and I are just the operators!
The chickens have the run of much of the place and are a mix of Black Australorps (my favorite!), White Plymouth Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, New Hampshire Reds, Dominiques, Welsummers, Brown Leghorns, and Ameraucanas.
BUY LOCAL!! Modern egg factories are not farms! Farms are where animals are raised for food yes, but not inhumanely. Localhens.com and Craigslist are good sources to find fresh, humanely produced eggs and chickens. In the summer, farmers markets are awesome!
Eggs are $3.00/dozen
