We had a chicken and duck business incubate on Cavaleiro for almost 2 years. The business moved onto better pastures but we decided to continue with chickens and ducks.
Our goal with the Chantecler chicken is to breed them so they raise chicks naturally without us needing to incubate eggs. It’s an endangered Canadian breed, so we want to do our part to promote this breed. Why? They are tough, hardy chickens that have the most potential to be a low cost chicken for a farm. They provide meat and eggs, while also all the benefiting the farm ecosystem.
Our goal with the ducks is to breed a duck that gives us a nice big egg. There is a growing market for salted eggs, and aged eggs. We make a nice one and the ducks also benefit the farm ecosystem.
