Our egg layers are started the same way as our meat birds, NEVER fed any medicated feed, some Magic Water to boost immunity, fermented organic feed, and given access to fresh pasture as soon as weather allows it. Our girls and a few lucky guys are housed in a coop with deep bedding and access to 4.5 acres of pasture daily. We have two creeks flowing on our property giving them access to salamanders, crawfish, and even the occasional frog as a treat. There is plenty of leaves in the fall to dig in and fresh bugs/larvae as treats in the spring and summer. These eggs have dark orange yolks and will be laid within a week of your purchase. This is a pickup only item to keep your food as fresh as possible for you.
