Our New Feathery Friends

Everyone, meet our new flock or chickens. In the backyard of the Eco House (Gaia) we have a small coop and run for our new girls, six chickens of various breeds. We are oh so excited about them, and we’d like to share that with you.

We are raising them as laying hens, not for meat purposes. All of them (except Henry the Ameraucana) lay various shades of brown eggs, and Henry lays blue/green eggs. We eventually hope to grow the flock to include another Ameraucana and some other breeds including some bantams (mini chickens) for educational purposes. If you’d like to sponsor a chicken, let us know. We’d be happy to keep one for you 🙂
