This is the chicken collection that we offer exclusively to backyarders. You will find out at around 16-20 weeks what exactly your laying hens will be giving you for fresh coloured eggs. We do our best to provide you with multi-coloured eggs. Birds from this collection are brooded together so you can expect they will transition into your coop with few issues. Birds are selected for compatibility and same age from stock available at the time you contact us and vary week to week. We select the birds and have yet to receive a complaint as majority of the birds exceed our clients' expectations. If you take a tour of some of Vancouver's surrounding cities like North Vancouver, New Westminster, Squamish; and in Victoria and other Vancouver Island municipalities, you will be amazed at the types of chickens you see in people's backyards.
Majority of the birds we sell for this collection can be shown in poultry competitions. If you are one of the city folks fortunate enough to own chickens, we do encourage you to bring the kids out and show off the hens or become a member of a local poultry fanciers club. Ours is the Fraser Valley Poultry Fanciers. There are some really great people at the events. Come out and show off your Light Sussex, Barnevelders, and New Hampshire hens!
Ages of birds range from 8-12 weeks. You may select one breed that you like best from the stock available and we'll do the rest.
Thanks for dropping by. I'm Matthew Nelson, farmer of Grade Eh Farms. I post on where my love and passion for life intersect with family, farming, food, & chicken for the soul.
