Chickens

Hens: we have a pretty varied mix of different breeds of layers (Javas, Cochins, Light Brahmas, Black Stars, Araucanas, and Highland Brown) and every one makes a difference in the chicken house, we have had many compliments about our fresh eggs, the brightness of their yolk and how superior they are compared to the grocery store that made us feel so proud of all of them.

Rabbits

Our New Zealand rabbits are our source of protein in our homestead, we have embarked in a journey to self sufficiency at some degree, so having our own source of meat is a crucial factor to achieve our goal.
