These are made to order. They are my own design. I will eventually have plans available. We have a flock of 30+ laying hens. When we used the round hanging type feeders, we always had a lot of wasted feed. It adds up when you have as many birds as we do. Switching to the trough feeders has cut our feed bill in half.

All chicks are vaccinated for Mareks.
Our Pullet Guarantee: When we get chicks from another hatchery, they come with a 90% accuracy in sexing. We realize that most people want hens only. So we offer a guarantee. If you happen to get a rooster that was supposed to be a pullet, bring him back. We will either trade him for another chick, or give you credit toward another chick the next time you add to your flock. Please be aware that we will rarely have same age chicks to trade for your rooster. (This guarantee is limited to a rooster 20 weeks old or younger. We are not able to accept back roosters that are older. Also, this guarantee does not apply to silkies since they are straight run.)
Cockerels: We also are now selling baby cockerels. The breeds we are offering are the red and black sex links. These breeds are great for flock protection or meat. Each is $1.

If you have your own fertile eggs that you would like incubated, we offer custom incubating for $1 per egg. Our incubator is state of the art and computer driven for optimum hatch rates. We will also place your eggs in a "heritage breed" basket within the hatching tray 3 days before the scheduled hatch. This insures that you get your own birds back from your own eggs.
We are always looking for new suppliers of fertile eggs. If you have a flock of pure breed standard size chickens, please let us know and we will add you to our breeders list.
Diatomaceous Earth (PermaguardFood Grade Agricultural Use): $14.95 for a 6lb container.
Pictures taken from our own supply:
We have partnered with Mule City Feeds to design and produce locally sourced feeds for the backyard flock. The grains that go into our feeds are grown in North Carolina, they are fresh, mixed in small batches, and use the highest quality ingredients.
LBH Super Chick Starter 23%: This chick starter has 23% protein. The highest available. The vitamins and minerals added exceed minimum daily nutritional requirements.
25 lb bag: $11.95
50 lb bag: $19.95
or by the pound @ $1/lb
LBH Happy Hen Natural Whole Grain Layer Ration: This layer ration is based on a whole grain diet that more fully engages the digestive system of the layer, thus improving nutrient absorption. The protein content is 17%, which supports the typical eating habits of a backyard flock. It also has added flax seed for improved omega-3's in the eggs.
50lb bag: $17.95
Pine Bedding for the Coop and Brooder: We have discovered a locally produced pine shaving product, specifically manufactured for animal care. These shavings are made in North Carolina using North Carolina trees. It is made directly from the raw product and is not a by-product from another process.
$7.95 per bag. Expands to 9.0 cu.ft.
3 to 9 bags: $7.45 per bag
10 or more bags: $6.95 per bag
We often have extra hatching eggs available. If you have a broody hen or would like to hatch your own, give us a call for availability and prices.
Rehoming Roosters: We always do our best to rehome any rooster that comes back. If you are interested in a rooster we often have some for sale. Just email us if you would like one or a particular breed of rooster and we will contact you if and when we get a rooster in.
