We Will Care For Unwanted Easter Chicks

Far too many dyed baby chicks that find themselves in an Easter basket are eventually abandoned and left to die in a park or in a garbage can.

If you need to find a home for dyed Easter chicks, send an E-mail to Valerie:

valerievanderbeak@gmail.com

and she will arrange for us to pick them up if you are in southern Arizona.

No Two Eggs Are The Same

It is unnatural if eggs all look the same.

Natural Eggs
This Is How Eggs Are Supposed To Look

If you love eating eggs, consider allowing three or four hens to live in your backyard.

Everyone loves our eggs. Hens will not only provide eggs for you, they will eat the bugs in your yard and fertilize the soil.

The hens at Vanderbeak lay eggs with a bright orange, healthy yolk.

Yellow pale yolks indicate the egg was layed by a stressed out, abused hen, imprisoned at a factory farm.

Hundreds of these eggs with yellow pale yolks are thrown out every day by local grociers. Greed and gluttony are the reasons hens suffer at factory egg farms. How do people working at factory egg farms sleep at night?

Hens at factory egg farms do not have the chance to enjoy even one day of their life.

Every day we sell all of our eggs and they have to be ordered one week in advance.

WE ARE CONCERNED FOR THE HENS AT FACTORY EGG FARMS

Hens are affectionate, sweet birds and they deserve the chance to live their life free from suffering.

United Poultry Concerns

Hens on our farm are valued even if they are not producing eggs. Throughout their entire livespan, the quality manure from the hens and the roosters is used in our composting programs.

Two Ways To Keep A Rooster Quiet:

Pick Your Rooster Up

When your rooster is crowing too much, pick him up and hold him.

He should stop crowing when you pick him up and he will love the attention.

All of my roosters like it when I carry them around with me and they all like to be the one sitting in my lap.

If hugging your rooster was not enough to keep him from crowing, he might be quiet when you set him up with a snack in front of a television.

Why is it so quiet?

It is quiet because Victor is busy watching a movie.

If these techniques do not work, here are two more ways to stop a rooster from crowing.

Two More Ways To Stop A Loud Rooster From Crowing:

Build A Soundproof Rooster Suite

If your rooster is waking people up at night or too early in the morning, building a soundproof shed or rooster suite to house him in can solve the problem.

Any crowing coming from the rooster suite will be hard to hear so he can crow without causing trouble.

Get A Rooster Collar

Try getting the rooster to wear a rooster collar.

A rooster collar can be purchased or you can make one yourself.

Some roosters will not mind the collar while others might panic.

If you can get the rooster to wear the collar, his call will be quieter and he will behave as if he crowed as loud as usual.

A Solution For Crooked Toes

Bummy was born with huge feet and crooked toes. She was having trouble walking.

We made a shoe for her out of tape which eventually straightened out her toes. The second after we were done wrapping her toes with the tape, she took off running.
