We raise our chickens naturally as we want to make sure we know what is in the food we eat (their eggs). They are not vaccinated, and are not given antibiotics or conventional medications of any kind. They are free ranged during the day on pasture/grass, and are also given a custom certified organic chicken feed that is 100% soy-free, organic herbs, fruits and vegetables. We utilize medicinal herbs, DoTerra essential oils and homeopathic remedies in their care, and they are super healthy, happy chickens as a result!
We are excited to announce the addition of a new breed of chicken to Sweet Meadows Farm - the Swedish Flower (SFH). We knew we wanted to bring chickens back to the farm, after not having them for a bit, and after doing some research, we decided to focus on one very special endangered breed....the Swedish Flower!
After having many various chicken breeds over the years, I can't tell you how much we are loving this breed - they are something really special!
Personality wise, they remind me so much of the cute chirping Speckled Sussex (one of our favorite past breeds) with such a super friendly, endearing personality, and a chirping little sing-song they make when they are happy. They act quite different than other chicken breeds we have had in that they actively want to sit on your lap, climb on your back, and sit on your shoulder/head! It is so funny and sweet, and now I can't imagine having any other breed! What a special breed of chicken, and we can't wait to share them with others!
We are planning on hatching out chicks come Spring 2022 so stay tuned! If you are interested in SFH chicks from us, just shoot us an email to get on our waitlist. Please note that we do not ship, so local pickup only; we would also be willing to use a livestock ground transporter.
