For you backyard farmers we occasionally have laying hens of various breeds available. These hens are healthy, 2 1/2 year old hens which have been free ranged at The Windy N Ranch and will have approximately 4 to 7 years of laying left. This is a great excuse for our customers in Seattle and the Puget Sound area to come over the hill for a ranch tour and to pick up their new, ready to lay, hens. Our layers will be great foragers in seeking out bugs, grubs, and grit.
Alternatively we sell these as Stewing Hens. They are not near as tender as our Freedom Rangers and in fact are completely different birds but the flavor is wonderful in a Crock Pot. For those of you who are intimidated at preparing a Stewing Hen check out this link. How to Cook Stewing Hens
