Hey there, CT Ranchers!

We're back with some egg-stra special news and fun facts. Let's get cracking!

The Great Egg Showdown: Duck vs Chicken

Ever wondered about the difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs? Well, wonder no more!

Our pasture-raised duck eggs are pretty impressive. They're larger than chicken eggs and packed with more Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamin A. Talk about nutrient-dense! Plus, they offer a rich, creamy taste that's got our customers raving.

Now, let's talk about chicken eggs. Did you know a hen lays about one egg per day when she's in her laying phase? That's a lot of breakfasts! These eggs can be either fertilized or unfertilized, but don't worry, the ones we eat are not fertilized. Chicken eggs have a lighter flavor compared to the rich taste of duck eggs but are just as versatile in the kitchen.

And here's the fun part - our ducks and chickens are doing their bit for Mother Earth too. As they roam our pastures, they naturally fertilize the land, keeping our farm green and thriving.

Little Chicken Eggs AKA “Pullet Eggs” are Coming Soon!

We're thrilled to announce that our chicken flock will start laying by the end of August. This means we'll soon have pullet eggs available. These little eggs, laid by young hens, are known for their rich flavor and deep yellow yolks.As the hens grow older, their eggs will gradually increase in size, eventually reaching the standard size of a typical chicken egg.

New Digs for our Chickens

Farmer Pierre, has been busy building brand new mobile coops for our pasture-raised flock. These coops get a change of scenery twice a week. This gives our hens a chance to scratch, forage, and peck at wild edibles and bugs, ensuring they enjoy a varied and natural diet.

Feed Like a Farmer

Want to feed your chickens like we do? Well you can! We offer the same organic, soy-free, non-GMO feed from New Country Organics that we give our hens. It's available for sale right on our online store and at our on farm store. Give it a try and let your chickens feast like the queens they are!

That's all for now, folks! Stay tuned for more updates and keep enjoying the farm-fresh goodness from CT Ranch!
