Kingbird Farm offers a wide range of poultry
on pasture and fed high quality certified organic feeds.
Our laying hens are bred, born, and raised on our farm and introduced
pasture as soon as weather permits. We currently have a flock of
300 Black Australorps with 20 roosters. During the growing
they are rotationally grazed on certified organic pasture around an
open-air hoophouse shelter. When the weather turns foul the hens
are moved to a spacious greenhouse near the barn. They spend the
winter on a deep composting pack that they can scratch while the
composting heat keeps them warm. The hens receive only certified
organic feed, alfalfa hay, and free-choice supplements (grit, oyster
shell, kelp). The eggs are hand-collected, cleaned, and packed on
farm and delivered to market immediately. Happy hens and the
freshest eggs are our constant goals.
Our broiler chickens are raised from chicks in a bright, open-air
brooder on certified organic feed and fresh greens. We currently
purchase day old chicks of a European breed that are bred for slow
growth on range and excellent flavor. They are
moved to pasture at two-three weeks old and allowed free-range access
to 1/8 acre (25 sq. ft/bird). They feed and graze on pasture and
seek shelter when needed. These healthy, robust birds
are processed by us on farm to reduce stress for the bird and ensure
healthy, fresh food for you. At the end of each season we raise a batch
of slow growing chickens that have superior flavor because of their
breeds and slow growth. We are only
raising a limited number of birds this year. Check our website
Broilers on Pasture
The ducks are
started in a sunny, warm hoophouse
brooder and released out onto pasture as soon as weather allows.
They are fed certified organic feed and watered in large troughs so
they can swim and preen in the sunshine. The ducks are also
processed on farm by us and guaranteed delicious.
We are happy to offer a very rare bird indeed. The old-fashioned,
like-grandma-remembers delicious stewing hens. These are our
retired laying hens that we process on farm for a very good soup
bird. Stew them long and slow for rich, warm flavor. We
usually have these in mid-fall.
Now that we produce all our own breeding and hatching we have a
good numbers of cockerols as part of producing more laying hens each
year. These 4-6 months old birds are great four soup, stew, or
ther slow cooked meals.
