"I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
It wouldn't be a true Funny Farm
without Funny Fowl!
In the spring of 2020, we added guinea fowl and 7 fluffy butt chickens to the farm. The guineas are resident exterminators and by the fall, the chickens were providing us with a plethora of colorful eggs: brown, white, chocolate speckled & light green.
In the fall, we were approached to adopt 7 more chickens. Who could say no to more chickens?
It's called chicken math.
With 3 coops and 14 chickens, by the following spring, we had an abundance of eggs from the Funny Farm.
More chicken updates for Spring 2022:
10 specialty colored eggs were hatched in the incubator
17 pullets are just being moved to their new coop
36 chickens will be laying in the next 6 months
means lots of rainbow eggs for our customers!
