If you ever get to visit our farm, one of the first things you’ll notice is the flock of hens and ducks that roams freely across the farm. Our flock is a mix of breeds that lay mainly brown eggs; we have a few ladies that lay green and white eggs too. The ducks lay a large white egg that is great for baking. The birds love to hunt for insects and seeds and eat our kitchen scraps, but they also receive a grain-based feed, which we get from the Dexter Mill that satisfies their omnivorous cravings. Although peak production is during the summer, they do lay eggs year around.
