I was knee deep in bread dough on Friday morning when the post office called to tell me to come down and pick up my package of live birds. Can you believe there are 50 chickens in this little box?






Fifty Red Broilers arrived safely from a hatchery in Vermont.




This brooder will be their home for the next 2-3 weeks until they feather out. After that they will live in portable pens and rotated on fresh pasture every day for 8-10 weeks.


These Red Broilers are an alternative to factory raised chicken. Our birds are humanely raised and get to enjoy fresh grass and sunshine everyday and are raised for 10 -12 weeks instead of the 4-6 weeks that you get from the supermarket. That results in a chicken with more interesting taste and texture and arguably more nutritious as they have more time to develop complex amino acids. This method of production is also good for our land. They fertilize as they till. Look at some of our layer hens helping me out.


ORDERING INFORMATION:The RED BROILERS are $3.75 per lb. They will average between 4-6 lbs. at maturity. They will be available for pick up/delivery sometime in mid August. Call or email us to reserve yours. (360) 795-0595 email:theinn@crippencreek.com
