Many hens and a few roosters live at Belle Oaks. Most months, they rotate in an electric fence around the farm to help fertilize and till the ground. During the coldest part of winter, their coop is stationary and they free range around the farm.
Our hens include Golden Comets, Barred Rocks, Easter Eggers, Cream Legbars, Olive Eggers, Cuckoo Marans, Welsummers, Splash Blue Favaucanas, Penedesencas, Black Copper Marans, Blue Splash Marans, Blue Black Splash Americaunas, and Austra Whites. We also have a few barnyard mixes which add to the unique egg colors.
In August 2019, we will have a new flock of hens at Belle Oaks. Stay tuned for our next exciting adventure with Black, Blue, and Splash Marans!
