Kingbird Farm - Layer Hen Breeding (1 of 2)

Kingbird Farm - Layer Management & Egg Production (2 of 2).mov


In the quest for flock improvement and self-reliance, Karma Glos from Kingbird Farm has started breeding her own laying hen replacements. Here she describes how she manages them from hen to egg, and incubator to chick. This is one clip in a series of videos demonstrating how Kingbird Farm, a certified organic diversified small farm in Berkshire, NY, produces eggs from pastured laying hens. This clip is from the Video Mentor series, produced by the Cornell Small Farms Program (http://nebeginningfarmers.org), filmed and edited by Peter Carroll of Ithaca, NY. This project was supported by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, Grant # 2009-49400-05878.
