P1010022The chickens here at Eatwell Farm live in mobile house that we run over alfalfa and through our orchard. The chickens eat the alfalfa and certified organic feed we provide for them. They live behind a electric netting fence to keep them in and the predators out. The main predators are coyotes. Sadie, the chicken guard dog, is also there as added protection should a coyote get inside the fence. The eggs are available through our CSA boxes and at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. The cost of the eggs has risen to $7 from 6 due to the increase in organic feed over the last month from $460 per ton to $566, a 23% price hike brought on by the increased cost of organic corn and soybeans.
