Our Story

TL;DR: We have chickens, they’re adorable, lost some, got more, and we sell eggs.

We picked up six Red Sexlinks from TSC in Spring of 2014 and fell in love with the quarks and kookiness of our hens in the big city.

What followed was a year of learning and yearning and sadness.

After the loss of most of our flock in early 2015 from a dog attack (our own failure at keeping the coop well protected against a 90 lb dog,) we decided to keep on trucking along and acquire more pretty ladies of different varieties to spice of our lives and productions.

Our patron saint will always be Scarlet O’Henna, but our current mascot is Sebastian Bawk the Rooster.
