Green Jeans Ranch

(Springville,CA)

Dear Fresh Egg Fan, The Springville Naturally Happy Hens Story The girls are born at the most reputable local family-operated chicken hatcheries. The chicks are ordered so that their hatching date is nearest the New Moon in order to produce strong healthy laying hens, per the Farmers Almanac. Green Jeans Ranch has selected the best breeds for the Western Sierra Mountain foothills for the 2009 season: Rhode Island Red, New Hampshire Red, Plymouth Barred Rock, California White Leghorn,Danis Brown Leghorn, Black SexLink, Red Sexlink, Bovan Brown, Buff Wing Wyandotte, Australorp, French Cuckoo Maran, Araucuna Americus, and Welsummer. This assortment produces a multi-colored bouquet of fresh natural ranch eggs for your kitchen. For the first six months chicks benefit from eating a wholesome diet from Central California feed mills which is free from antibiotics and hormones. They get plenty of outside playtime so that they grow up to be eager chicken teenagers. Their next three months is spent exploring the pastures around the home chicken coop. The younger hens learn what is good to eat, and how to avoid predators eating them, from older wiser hens. The philosophy is: As nature intends it to be. More or less at nine months when they start to lay small eggs, the girls specialize in scrambled eggs. They graduate to making the vigorous protein in multihued shells that you can purchase for a reasonable price.
