Free Range Chickens

A combination of Rhode Island Red and Dominique chickens are the “layer flock” that is made up of mostly hens who each lay an egg every day or every other day. While protected by temporary fencing, they have plenty of room to search for bugs, seeds, and the cracked corn children feed them as a treat. When the ground is all scratched up by chickens, the farmers move them to fresh grass.
