Farm Description: We have Rhode Island Reds. My hens are free range and if want have 48 acres to roam in. Nights they all go back in the coop, which I call the eggmoble. It is a building erected on a pop-up camper frame, which is why its called my eggmoble. Hens can go in and out at will and lay their eggs in the nest. which are gathered twice daily. Nest cleaned daily and fresh straw added. Hens go in at dusk and then the door is closed to keep them safe from predators.
Why Local Food Is Important: Healthy eggs! Pastured or free range are more nutritional than caged birds or so called non caged birds with hundreds of chickens all in one building. Eggs bought in the shopping stores have been washed in a clorine solution thus removing the so called protective coating known as the bloom, greatly diminishing shelf life. For so fresh eggs the producer can hold eggs for 3momths.befor shipping, the store can hold them another 3. Wonder where the fresh eggs are???
