Dixie (& Chick)
$20.00 / month
Our chickens are all rescued and entrusted to us by various animal control facilities around Ontario. We have received chickens from shelters like Toronto Animal Services, Quinte Humane Society, Brock Animal Shelter, along with owner surrenders and retired hen rescues from meat auctions.
Our hens lay a myriad of different coloured eggs – when going into the coop you are likely to see pink, iridescent white, brown, light green, moss green, baby blue and turquoise coloured eggs. We have coined the term “ethical eggs” and are selling them in the Toronto area through weekly deliveries. The eggs are ethical as they are from free roaming chickens, that eat a healthy variety of fresh fruit, fresh veggies and protein along with a well-balanced feed. Chickens only lay for a few years and then are used for meat when their production lessens. We keep all of our hens and have a very nice retirement facility for our old ladies so in this coop you don’t have to “produce” to “stay”. So, our eggs are delicious and ethically based as well. How delicious!
If you would like to sponsor a lady or gentleman for $20/ month or $240 a year please pick a friend from some of our flock below:
Dixie is one of the twin pairs at the sanctuary and we call them “The Dixie Chicks”. They love to squawk, dance and fly around like little rock stars. This duo is so dynamic and they just love to PARTY! Dixie was rescued by the Quinte Humane Society and transported to the farm via an amazing rescue transport group called “Critter Cabs”.
