Bergala Family Farm = Farm Life Fun!

Posted on 29 July 2012 by noelskitchen

The Bergala Family Farm is now home to 24 chickens, 3 roosters and now 6 guinea keets! Here’s the breakdown: 2 “older ladies”, Cricket and Clover are our Silkie Frizzles and they have been laying eggs for about 1 1/2 years. They lay a smaller size egg like a Grade B. The rest of the ladies Buttercup (our fair chicken), will start laying fairly soon.


Our roosters include Jersey, (pictured above) Rootbeer; our Silkie, and now we found out we have a Cuckoo Maran Rooster named Pierre. He doesn’t crow as much like the other two.


Yes, we have become accustomed to farm life now, raising our chickens and roosters. This life must suit us, because we are still having a ton of fun!

With us finally taking a family vacation at the end of the year, we felt it was time to expand and rebuild our chicken coop to  allow for more nesting boxes and room to roam inside a pen versus free range all the time. We’re spending quite a bit more time outdoors this summer redoing landscaping and just making everything look nice so we felt keeping the chickens and roosters in a central location was best.

Our younger chickens just started laying last week. They are producing the cutest little eggs compared to Big Mamma our older hen eggs which are much larger.
