The Sweet Chicken Homestead is home of The Sweet Chicken Project®
What is The Sweet Chicken Project®?
The Sweet Chicken Project® was established in 2010 with the help of some fantastic people from Cornell University. It's been going strong for over 12 years with the emphasis on genetic traits, temperament and quality.
Most importantly o flocks are hand raised with loving kindness. All of our flock members have names and are part of our family. On our homestead we even have a retirement home for older birds no longer laying. We love them and they are cared for through old age here, where they can live out their natural lives.
When you decide to raise chickens you have a few choices of how to obtain them. In most cases, you really don't know what kind of genetics they'll have other than the breed, and they may have come from a less than ideal situation.
Chickens carry traits, temperament and personality from their parents, grandparents and so on just like us. You really have no way of knowing what kind of temperament they will have.
We have worked very hard at obtaining the sweetest, friendliest, kindest flock of birds that not only are affectionate, but can be handled by young children. We truly love our birds and they reflect that back to all of us everyday. Yes, even our roosters are sweet & child friendly, from our proven genetic lines.
The Sweet Chicken Project is in it's 12th generation of birds with these kind traits. We offer hatching eggs & chicks carrying these fantastic genetics.
All birds are pure breed and show quality.
