We are offering for sale 20 healthy laying hens used this summer for our farm's CSA program. Hens just started laying in May/June and produce extra large brown eggs almost daily LIKE CLOCKWORK (we average 19 eggs per day with 20 hens)! Golden Comet breed - super gentle and friendly. Very easy keepers - we purchase layer feed from local Mennonite mill and supplement with lots of garden scraps/waste/plants/weeds/etc. Hens are outside all day and locked in barn at night.
Golden Comet hens are predominantly golden red with white splashes in varying degrees and beautiful penciled feathering. A docile and very tame breed, they make great pets and are excellent for the backyard hobbyist interested in eggs for the home. They are a modern brown egg laying strain that produce fast body development and early egg production at five months of age. They are cold hardy and lay right through the winter months. Their eggs are a very large brown, perhaps the largest brown egg of any breed as they mature, which can vary greatly in color from a light cream to a deep reddish brown. Some eggs are speckled with small liver colored spots.
Price is $10 per hen with a five (5) hen minimum order; $9 each for 10 or more. Available for pick-up immediately! Please email us at the above link or call us at
