Here at the farm, we believe in our birds living as naturally as possible. We want to make sure our birds are living the best life that they can, being as happy as we can make them. In the off-season, we allow our girls to lay when they wish, incubate if they wish, or take a vacation! We do not encourage laying throughout the winter by adding lights or supplementing anything of any kind. We want to extend their lives and egg laying, as well as health and overall being.
