It's only January but already people are thinking of getting into chickens or adding to their flock. In a couple of months we will be starting into the 2019 hatching season. This year we have added the American Bresse to our flock & we're excited to see how everyone li...

The guineas laid later this year due to the cold spring so hatching season extended way later than usual. I have about 40 guinea keets still who need new homes to clean out ticks. These birds eat ticks like no tomorrow. We used to have ticks terribly bad, so bad that y...

Hatching season is winding down for this year. I have two more hatches coming of guinea keets but that will be it till next spring. It's been a busy hatching season again & I'm looking forward to the break to just care for my own chicks that are growing out for next ye...

Hatching season is in full swing here at Flint Hills Farm. It's always a challenge early in the season with daylight hours being enough for laying to get up to par. As the days get longer the hens lay better & fertility improves as well. Many people don't know that roo...
