Friends, stop by Moore than Feed in Rockport to get your very own baby chicks. Moore than Feed now sells chicks that came straight from our farm. When your chicks grow up, their beautiful eggs will be blue, green, pink, white, light brown, or dark brown.
We collected the eggs from our own laying hens, and our friends Fred and Linda Marshall, of M-Tree Quail Farm, incubated the eggs for us into healthy happy chicks.
These chicks are the fourth or fifth generation of chickens born on our farm. We have been incubating our own eggs to develop laying hens that are more tolerant of the intense heat of a Rockport summer. We have also selected for the most beautiful roosters and hens, and every new generation is more beautiful than the last.
The chicks at Moore than Feed are straight run and mixed. The breeds of chicks available include: barnevelders, cuckoo marans, ameraucanas, black langshans, black australorps, production reds, white leghorns, dominiques, and barred rocks. Melvin and his team will help you select your chicks.
Melvin also offers everything you need to start your own backyard laying hens, from feeders to hen houses. Begin now with your own chicks, and soon you will enjoy your own beautiful eggs, freshly gathered, and your laying hens will be lovely to look at.
