The Chickens

Although we have several heritage varieties of chickens roaming around the farm we are concentrating on Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks and Ameraucana’s. Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks are wonderful egg layers and, since they are a heavier bird, they are suitable to use as meat birds as well. The Ameraucana’s are fun to have around because they lay a bluish-green egg.

Eggs are available for sale in the Egg Shack – $3.50/doz (don’t be surprised if you find a blue one in the carton!)

The Turkeys

Walter – our “pet” turkey.
Ridley Bronze Turkey.

We have Ridley Bronze Turkeys. They are a Canadian Heritage Breed developed in the 1940’s. They are currently on the Rare Breeds Canada critical list. Beginning in 2018 we will have hatching eggs for sale. Please contact us for more information. terri@seaweedandsod.ca
