Our Chickens

Our Chickens

Lifestyle and Care

A big focus at Larry’s Local Market is to keep our chickens happy, and in turn they give us joy and a wholesome product! Our hens are fed a complete and balanced diet specially formulated for egg-laying hens. They also enjoy foraging for bugs and other treats while out on the grass pasture. This particular diet is what keeps the bodies and eggshells of our hens strong. We also built our very own chicken wagon (a mobile coop), meaning our chickens are able to explore new areas of the farm on a daily basis and enjoy free ranging until the weather becomes too cold, at which time they are in their barn coop.
