I'm showing the chickens because around the 2nd or 3rd week of December we will have stewing hens for sale. $7 per bird. These are the hens that are 2-4 years old and that we have decided to replace. Next year I'll be all about egg colors. I need more variety in the colors and I also have no chicken left from our broilers so we needed some chicken for ourselves and for a few customers who routinely ask for chicken. We are reducing the size of the flock from 140 to around 60. But the mix of those 60 will have deep brown, speckled brown, white, green and light brown colors. Email us if you want any stewing hens, best to place an order now as the chicken seems to go fast.
The bronze turkeys are almost sold out. I thought by Nov 1 - but could be tomorrow or Nov 10. I just need to make sure my husband doesn't sell them all again like he did last year and forget to leave a few for us. I can't wait to process these birds. The Tom's are gonna be 30+ lbs and the hens should be right at 22lbs.
Last but not least- we will have more Beltie beef for sale the second week of December. For those who are scheduled to come pick up meat this week and those who I am seeing in 3 weeks over the holidays- you are covered. But then we'll be totally sold out (other than the liver, heart and tongue). We've got #12 at the butcher and he is hanging aging right now. #12 was the hardest steer yet to get into the trailer but we outsmarted him- poor guy.
