"Strong Start" Chick Giveaway
from Magnolia Hill Farm
Magnolia Hill Farm's "Strong Start"Giveaway!
It is hard to express, in words, the excitement I feel to be able to be a part of a strong start for families' homesteads, farmsteads, or backyard farms!
It is no secret that chickens are a gateway to the self sufficient lifestyle. For example, 8 healthy laying hens can produce an average of 2,000 eggs in 1 year. Yes, you read that correctly! 2,000 eggs in a year!! That's a lot of meals for a family!
Not only are healthy laying hens highly productive when it comes to putting food on the table, they are pretty inexpensive to maintain.
Since I established my current laying hen flock and decided to start hatching my own barnyard mix chicks, I realized I could potentially help make a huge difference in the beginner farmer and homesteader community.
I have decided that every Spring I want to give away, completely free with no shipping costs or fees, 8-10 barnyard mix chicks (per family) to two families!
When this thought crossed my mind, I was immediately consumed with the memory of the sheer delight that I felt the first time my laying hens provided my family with delicious fresh eggs. This feeling never leaves me, even after raising laying hens for over 20 years...and now I have the ability to share that with others who have dreams of the same!
So if you have dreams of starting your very own laying hen flock and providing fresh, home raised eggs for your family, make sure to enter this years "Strong Start" giveaway below!
I want to personally congratulate you on one of the best decisions you will make when it comes to feeding your family and teaching them about this wonderful back-to-basics lifestyle!
