We have 95 happy hens and a rooster who live in the Hen Shack at Garden Shack Farm. On average, each hen lays
one egg per day most days of the year. Are our hens free range? pastured? cage free? organic? you ask.
Different people have different interpretations of those terms, so this is how they spend their days: Their Hen Shack
is 100 square feet and they are only locked in their shack from dusk to dawn, for their protection. All day they roam
on a 17,000+ sq ft fenced and partially covered area with plenty of greenery and bugs. (That's about 350 square feet per bird.) The fence and bird netting keep them safe from the various creatures we have roaming around and flying
over the farm. They eat commercial laying feed without antibiotics, many garden and kitchen leftovers, and
anything else they can naturally find and/or catch. You are welcome to visit them whenever we are open!
