Couple Starts Central New York Business Renting Chickens
Kikta Farms, 'No Farm Just Fowl' a small farm just outside Oneida recently started renting out laying hens for people to have farm fresh eggs. The kids will love this!
Kikta Farms will rent you chickens for a month or the entire summer season. We frequently see food recalled due to unspecified allergens, undeclared ingredients, contamination with Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella, even foreign matter like metal shavings. This is a fun way to take charge of what you and your family consume. As an added bonus, it's a great way for kids to learn about agriculture and growing your food. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Kikta Farms will provide all of the supplies you need including
- Portable chicken coop,
- A perch and nesting box with easy access to collect your eggs,
- Two laying hens
- 100 pounds of feed
- Food and water dispensers
- Instructions on how to keep your birds happy.
In about two days your chickens will start laying eggs ready for you to eat. Did you know Fresh Free Range Eggs have 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fats, and two times more omega three fatty acids than store bought eggs?
