Welcome to The Sweet Chicken Homestead
I am a wife, mother of five, avid gardener, canner, chicken breeder and lover of the country life. Welcome to my place online...
**Hello to our fellow chicken enthusiasts! We are super excited for the 2019 season to begin! We've increased several flocks for this season to help keep up with the large demand for hatching eggs. We'll also begin hatching in early March for chick orders.
We will have a few Light Brahma cockerels available for adoption as well. Last year so many people were asking for roosters from our line of Light Brahmas, so we hatched and kept three extra boys when we did our Silkie hatch last Fall. These boys are incredibly sweet, kind, gentle, and wonderful for young children. They've been living/growing in our winter grow out coop (named Fruity Pebbles) helping to keep the young Silkies warm though winter. They are enormous even at two and three months old. These gentle giants will be available in early Spring when the temperatures warm up here in the Northeast.
We're really happy to be offering for the first time hatching eggs & chicks from our Sultan, Silkie Showgirl, and Serama Frizzle lines this year as well!
Lets hope the rest of this winter goes fast, we are itching to get the incubators going!
Any questions you may have feel free to email as always. I try to answer any questions within 24 hours.**
A lot goes into gardening around here. It starts with planning based on the things we like to eat year round. Deciding what to grow, how much to grow, and how to preserve it are all things that go into consideration long before it's on the table. Here is my personal gardening story and tips to help you plan...
Everything I've learned about raising happy, healthy chickens for eggs. Choosing what breed you want to raise, baby chick care, housing, runs, feeding, chicken health, rodents, predators, & health.
