If you are looking for rare, ornamental, quality chickens, then you came to the right place! Superior Feathers is a small hobby chicken farm located in Visalia, California. I truly have a passion for raising happy, healthy chickens. My chickens are handled daily and therefore are friendly, gentle and calm. Whether it be egg-layers, dual-purpose, show birds or pets, I can help you find what you're looking for.
In my breeding pens are the Bantam English Orpingtons, Modern Game Bantams, Old English Game Bantams and Silkies. To prevent a higher mortality rate and to protect these little guys from predators, these pens are perfect. They are spacious, completely covered and enclosed with a high gage fencing wire. One of the pens is used as a "grow-out" area for chicks transitioning to either one of the breeding pens, or in the larger coop of Ameraucanas and various egg layers.
In the large coop...
I have about 15 various breeds of egg layers in the large coop. They provide our family as well as others with fresh eggs!
Above is a picture of some of my flock. I take great pride in caring for my chickens. Feeding them fruit from our orchard, leftover vegetables, mealworms and clippings from the lawn are some of their favorite treats. As a regular diet I feed them a 50/50 mix of lay crumble and scratch. Also included on a weekly basis is a mix of diatomaceous earth, flax seed, oyster shell and garlic powder. These ingredients are all natural ways to deworm, repel fleas, ticks and mites, boost immune and respiratory systems, increase egg production and shell thickness, and overall health just to name a few. I also add unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to their drinking water on occasion. ACV is another natural immune booster and is full of vitamins and minerals. It also kills germs and clears out airways. Chicks receive medicated chick starter for the first 6 months, along with scratch and mealworms for treats.
