Poultry Census

The number and type of poultry which live on Mike Hewett's Farm is constantly changing. Currently, chicks and ducklings are being raised in the brooder to replace older poultry. Our mature chickens, quail, and ducks lay frequently during the spring and summer. Unfortunately, as sunlight hours decrease in the fall, laying production also decreases. We aim to be at full capacity in terms of laying production each spring to bring the best product to the market during the growing season.
