The Lower D Chicks have been producing an abundance of great eggs, and we would like to share them with you.
Our laying hens are offered only organic or non-GMO layer mix and scratch. We wash and crush the egg shells and give them back to our flock to recycle the calcium and help keep their shells strong. They free range during the day to gather greens, bugs, seeds and whatever catches a chicken’s eye. The fresh air, sunshine and room to roam keeps them happy and healthy. They drop their manure over the pastures adding nutrients back into our soil. Their foraging helps to keep undiserable insects (think ticks) in check.
We believe our rainbow of eggs are brighter and firmer and healthier than any egg you can purchase at a supermarket.
There are several different breeds in our main flock. Many of them are listed on the Livestock Conservancy as breeds that need help. These eggs are laid by Welsummer, Brown Leghorn, Partridge Rock, Buff Brahma, Ameraucana, Jersey Giant, and a few hen hatched crosses.
We are working at raising sustainable, ethical food and raising chickens has been a great experience.
We hope that you enjoy and are well nourished by this little piece of our farm.
Eggs last a long time, but are perishable. Keep Refrigerated.
