We started with the goal of providing our family with healthier, tastier eggs. We then decided to gr
Look who decided to pop out on Thursday! These Rhode Island Red chicks are the beginning of our RIR breeding program. We already have a rooster of a different line on standby. Hopefully we can begin in the spring!
Cheeky Chicken Farm updated their business hours.
In case you were wondering, here is a basic guide of how much a chicken needs. Personally we increase these “standards” at the farm for happier, healthier chickens.
Please rest assured that we are still doing everything we can to keep production costs down so you can continue to give your family the best eggs possible.
One of our gentlemen got his crow!!! Way to go Picasso!!!
If you can just get threw that second stage…
So we had a bit of excitement on the farm today…. Thankfully we are all safe including the animals. Funny thing was that we have a guy scheduled to come out it cut it down tomorrow! 🤪 I was actually inside the garage checking up on chicks when it happened.
Roosters are NOT always demons on Earth.
My son and our new rooster, Buff, posing for the camera. We just got this handsome boy a few weeks ago and they are already best friends!
We have our Bachelor Pad set up and running! Now on to building a coop to separate our Isa Browns from our Buff Orpingtons and a chick/juvenile pen. By spring, the plan is to have pens for Black Australorps, Swedish Flowers, Isa Browns, Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds and possibly Plymouth Rocks. We not only want to be able to offer the most affordable and nutritious eggs possible to our area but also the opportunity for YOU to do the same for your family during these uncertain times. Something tells me I’m gonna need a vacation….
When you are caught being in the wrong coop at the end of the day but you decide to try to blend. 🤣🤣🤣 This rooster cracks me up!
I have two roosters looking for their own coops. Both were hatched in February and are half brothers. They are non-aggressive and need their own girls.
Rooster 1 - Isa Brown/Buff Orpington mix
Rooster 2 - Isa Brown
I have 2 Leghorn pullets (young females) that are looking for a new home.
Highlights of the day : Tina took a spa day and soaked up the sun and we have 9 confirmed embryos in the incubator!!!!!!! I feel like Bumblebee on Transformers. “I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!”
Meet 3 of 4 of our newest additions to the farm!!! All were given to us by Cheri Diane Collins, in Cumberland, who took them in when they had nowhere else to go.
-The smaller Pekin (white) duck on the right is a suspect drake, named Drake, has been lovingly accepted by Donald and the girls.
-The dark duck is a Cayuga drake we named York. His breed originated in the Lake Cayuga, New York area. York skipped no beats either and has become quick friends with everyone.
- Our other young rooster is still very shy (hence no photo). He is a gorgeous black with white speckles bird and we can’t wait to see his true personality.
- Last but not least is Picasso!!! He is a Swedish Flower Rooster and his breed is on the endangered list put out by The Livestock Conservancy. Sunday evening was a little rough for him but he is beginning to make a place for himself among the flock. I can’t wait to see how far he goes!
Did you know…
It takes about 21 days for a chicken egg to hatch. Smaller breeds, like Bantams, will normally take 18 days. After hatching you will begin to be able to tell the s*x of your chicks more accurately when they reach 12 weeks of age. If you are like me and want a general idea more quickly, then you can simply took at the shape of the wing. This can tell you if the chick is a pullet (female) or cockerel (male).
We have a couple new arrivals to the farm. Everyone meet Tom and Tina!!!
In order to give you the best we can our chickens are able to forage in upwards of 10 hrs a day in an area equal to 230 square feet per bird! They are provided a coop and closed run for night time protection and egg laying location ONLY. Our girls are given fruits, vegetables, scratch, and supplemental feed in addition to foraging. By do this our happy girl are able to give your family MORE OF THE GOOD STUFF.
This is how we do breakfast on the farm! Just look at those beautiful pasture raised eggs!
Due to an unforeseen large order, all orders will be postponed until next week. We hope y’all enjoy this wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
A message from Ethel:
Have you ever wondered about the different ways chickens are raised? There are several. Allow me to explain.
Caged : Chickens are kept in cages just big enough to move around in. They are fed low grade feed and produce the lowest quality eggs. Any carton you would find in the store that doesn’t indicate anything else is from a caged bird.
Cage-free : These birds are kept in large barn type structures with lots of other birds. Their beaks are typically ground down to ward off pecking. They never go outside and are given less than 1 square foot per bird. They are also given low grade feed and produce only slightly better eggs.
Free Range : Chickens are given the opportunity to go outside and have access to a run. They are given better quality feed which allows for better shell quality and more nutrients within the egg.
Pasture Raised : Birds are given access to at least 108 square feet where they are able to forage for seeds, grass, bugs and worms. This method is best and encourages natural habits and makes for happier birds. The feed is better quality and is more of a supplement than anything else. These eggs are strong and have even more nutrients in them.
Here at Cheeky Chicken Farms it turns out we use the Pasture Raised method and the girls and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
We have 8 dozen eggs looking for kitchens. Our unwashed eggs come from free range chickens who spend their days roaming the property for whatever suits their fancy. They are nutrient packed, delicious and collected fresh daily. We only ask $3 a dozen to help pay for their feed. If your kids are anything like ours, they will beg for more!
Meet the latest addition to the farm. This is Xena. She is a 4 month old Black Lab mix. Addison has adjusted nicely and they even play tug of war together! Welcome home Xena!!!
Just for fun 🤩
Hey y’all. It’s me again, Ethel! It’s a beautiful day today. Isn’t it? The girls and I are absolutely loving it. Do you know what else we love? EGGS!!!! And we make plenty of them. Farm fresh eggs will last up to 8 weeks and are PACKED with nutrients. Our eggs are collected daily and stored unwashed for maximum freshness. Drop a comment or send a PM for more information. $3/doz
From at us the farm HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!!
Cheeky Chicken Farm updated their address.
Happy Friday Y’all!!! Have an EGGcelent weekend!!!
We have 10 dozen eggs ready to go!!! Will one of them be yours?
A message from Ethel:
Hey you! Yeah you!! Did you know that store bought eggs have a lot less nutrients and flavor when compared to farm fresh eggs? Farm fresh eggs also go for $5, $6 or even $7 a dozen!! Can you believe that? Us chickens at Cheeky Chicken Farm don’t believe in charging that much so we sell ours for ONLY $3 a dozen. Plus while the chickens that provide for the stores are caged or locked in a covered walled up barn, we are able to run around freely and eat all kinds of juicy, crunchy bugs and sweet plants. We are so proud of our eggs and you will be too when you serve them to your family. We hope to see you soon!!!
What did you do this weekend? We finished our secondary run for ducks, roosters and chicks! Expansion never looked so good. 😊
Coming over to inspect the handy work.
My girls haven’t skipped a beat despite molting and the crazy weather we have had. They are let out daily to do what chickens do best…forage. They are very happy girls and when chickens are happy and well provided for they produce the most phenomenal eggs!!! Our eggs are nutrient packed and taste GREAT!!!
I have seen a carton of farm fresh free range eggs go for as much as $5 but I only sell mine for $3!!! Why? It’s because I’m not in the business to make money. I am trying to provide the best food I can for my family and animals.
I have ducks, too, but they are still all over the place.
Beautiful farm fresh free range eggs $3 a dozen. I have 11 dozen looking for kitchens!
