Our flock has a selection of breeds – some selected for yields, whilst
other rare breeds lay blue eggs.
Chicks were initially imported from

dogs in 2010, we now hatch our own Abaco breeds and hope to begin egg
production again soon.
All birds free range with basic shelters for roosting and nesting– their favourite

very short time. We are selling individual birds to the local
market and hope to enhance local menus with these delicacies. They provide
great interest and enjoyment to the school children. Although wild
dogs decimated our geese population, we are hopeful to begin breeding at
