where chickens are friends.....NOT food!
228 Toms River Rd. Jackson, NJ 08527
We have a horse for everybody!
We give introductory horseback riding instruction to people with little or no experience who want to enjoy a 30 minute or 60 minute horseback ride. We start lessons in the arena and often progress to the trails when riders become confident.
Riders ages 8 and up can participate. Our horses are well seasoned and trusty mounts that will give you a safe and fun experience. Our instructors will keep the ride slow and steady for beginners or pick up the pace a bit for more experienced riders.

Our lessons are for leisure and enjoyment only. We are not a show barn or high pressure facility. We just love our horses like family members. They bring us so much happiness and we love to share that with others!

There is no commitment for riding instruction. You can come only once or once a week!
Lessons are best scheduled by calling ahead of time, but often we can accomodate walk ins during our seasonal chick pick up hours if the farm is not too busy. We do offer couples and small group sessions.

CHICK STARTER KITS
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.

When our breeds of chickens are fully grown, they do not normally require additional heat when given proper shelter in the winter
Need a coop?
All of our buildings are constructed on site at Jersey Chickens and can be delivered to your location. We can provide you with chicken coops, run in sheds, play houses, garden sheds, theme and twisted buildings, and more. Please find us on Facebook to see our completed projects and custom jobs, or view our catalogs.
Vaccinations:
All chicks 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.
