Meet the Chickens of Eagle Eye Farm
Our chickens are very spoiled. We have three coops on the property. The larger coop houses the birds born in 2020. The smaller coop houses the birds born in 2021. The Chicken Chalet with the Chicken Chandelier inside the barn serves as the retirement housing for our oldest birds - Oprah and Giselle. Their diet is nearly completely organic. Every morning, they are given kale. spinach, zucchini, and several ears of corn. In the evening, they are given a salad of kale, spinach, zucchini, and apples…. In addition to their chicken feed and scratch, they also receive extra Omega 3 supplements in their diets. Because they have such a healthy diet and live in very clean living quarters, their eggs are exceptionally tasty. We have between 30-40 hens of all different breeds. Some of the girls hold a special place in our heart, so they get special mention below.
Giselle was named after Tucker’s idol’s wife – Tom Brady’s Giselle. The bird Giselle is just like the supermodel Giselle, thin and blonde. Giselle loves her salad! She has tons of character. You can tell how she is feeling by how she whips that plume on her head around. Giselle produces white eggs.
Georgie is a barred rock. She and Dawn have developed a very special bond. Barred rock chickens are known as having a great temperament and are good egg producers. Georgie lays a brown egg.
Oprah was named after the one and only Oprah Winfrey! Oprah is fantastic. She sits back and observes the others, gathering information and then takes charge when necessary – just like her namesake, she can be a boss when needed. Oprah is a consistent bird. She produces a nice bluish egg.
