We are a small family run farm located in Jackson, NJ. We love our chickens and hatch for the joy of it. We carefully select our breeds and hatch in small batches. We simply want to share the experience of raising chickens with other families. With this in mind, our birds are all well cared for, mild mannered, and well suited to our four seasons. Any of our breeds will make the perfect egg laying back yard flock.

When can my chicks go outside?
Baby chicks are kept at 95 degrees for the first week of life and then can handle a 5 degree temperature reduction each week. Only put your chicks outdoors when the daily low is the temperature they can handle at their age.

Vaccinations:
All chicks hatched after 4/24/17 will be vaccinated for Mareks Disease.

We have put much thought into this decision. For many years we did not want to vaccinate, due to keeping the chicks as natural as possible. Due to the extreme popularity of back yard chickens, more and more people are asking about vaccinations. Mareks Disease is starting to become more common, with flocks of backyard chickens popping up in nearly every neighborhood. This disease can spread through the wind or on clothing and shoes of your neighbors who have chickens. It is not harmful to humans, but quite deadly to most chickens. 80% of any flock will likely not survive if they are exposed to Mareks. The vaccination is given on hatch day to the chicks. Medicated feed is still recommended for the first few months to control coccidosis, which is a completely different issue than Mareks.
