    Hello! We have Swedish Flower Hens in Austin, Texas. We are always looking to add new hens to our flock. We also take in rescue/rehome chickens, use practical farm pratices, and kind humane treatment.
    Since we are already feeding kale apples oatmeal ..grated and fresh each day along with scratch and Layena, I would be very interested in learning the Bresse method of raising roosters. Plus, our chickens are true yard birds out everyday rain or shine.
    We have hawks and a hawk nest in our South Austin Suburb. A hawk has tried to grab a rooster out of my arms in the early morning after we had 2 weeks of rain. I think he must have been starving. I held on and we were unharmed. So I have hawk protection advice. We use many practices to deter the hawks.
