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 the place and are a mix of brown, white, and green egg layers. They include: Black Australorps (my favorite!), White Plymouth Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, New Hampshire Reds, Dominiques, Welsummers, Brown and Red 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, farmersâ€™ markets are awesome!
Fresh eggs for sale at $2.00/dozen. Come see our girls… bring the kids and they can help collect the eggs! Just call to arrange it!
For $3.00/dozen, I will deliver to Albuquerque most weeks and can meet you at just about anywhere along the I-40 corridor from Tramway to I-25.
