Live Laying Hens
Rooster Hill Farms maintains a flock of top quality pullets and laying hens for sale to the public. These hens are the same hens as those in production at the farms. We have two separate sections of the farms for the hens; one is the overflow farm the other is the cull farm.
When we find that we are producing more eggs than we can sell, we move some of the layers to the overflow farm for sale to the public. And, sometimes when we order replacement hens, we order a few hundred extra hens to sell to the public.
The cull farm is made up of hens that are no longer laying or hen that have been injured or sick. Once we nurse them back to health, we do not return them to the flock. They are housed on the cull farm until someone comes to buy them or they simply live out their days there.
The best time to catch hens is after dark when they are on the roost. Call to find out what is available. We sell:
