We are about 10 miles north of Lincoln Nebraska. Hens are raised on 20 acres of pasture. We supply the university and other businesses with free range containment free white and brown eggs ether retail or wholesale. Have been in the egg business for about 10 years. Raise a variety of breeds. As you can imagine trying to count around 1000 hens is not easy since they wont line up to be counted. We have 500 chicks coming in late February to try and keep up with demand. We use Great Pureness guard dogs to keep the chickens safe sense we do not use fences of any kind. They sleep with the hens. I have been reading the posts for a while and thought I would join.
