Our Hens' Eggs are for Sale
Our beautiful Copper Maran rooster!
Our hens are happily laying, and we are selling eggs!
Wondering why you should buy Belle Vie Farm eggs? Our hens are free-range during the day and spend their days meandering about our forest searching for delicious morsels. Contrary to what most folks think, chickens are not vegetarians. They are omnivores! I have watched a hen down a baby snake in two seconds flat (didn't eat her eggs for a while!) and also watched a happy flock of hens decimate a plot of kale faster than I can shoo them away.
Our hens eat what they want and need. Our hens have an eclectic diet of table scraps, black oil sunflower seeds and sometimes meal worms. They really love sunflower seeds (so do the goats, donkeys and rabbits). They forage in the forest and sometimes eat a little Southern States feed.
Well-maintained nesting boxes in cozy spots mean our hens' eggs stay clean! Our eggs are gathered each day and placed in cartons in our egg fridge right away. We make sure our eggs are fresh and delicious!
Belle Vie Farm has a variety of chickens because we love colors! We love different colored hens and their different colored eggs. Our eggs are chocolate brown (from our beloved Copper Marans), blue and gray/lavender (from our Easter Eggers), olive green (from our Olive Eggers), cream-white (from the rare Ayem Cemani). Our other breeds include Appenzeller Spitzhaubens, frizzles, olandsk dwarf and more. We are always hatching in our incubators and forever searching for unusual, friendly breeds.
