  • Black Australorp
  • Barred Rock
  • Buff Orphington
  • Rhode Island Red
  • White Leghorn
  • Ameraucana
  • Silver Laced Wyandotte
  • Austra White

 

You’ll definitely want to take part in a special evening we have planned.  On March 27 at 6:00 pm Eagle Hardware Farm and Ranch will host our first Chick Workshop.  We’ll provide a FREE dinner catered by Richards Smokehouse. Afterwards, we will discuss what it takes to be a responsible and successful poultry owner.  From the chick to the egg and everything in between will be discussed.  As a bonus for the evening, we will also have a special guest who will add to the poultry discussion and lead out in discussing wild birds.  Bob Wucher, an chick and wild bird specialist with Purina Animal Nutrition, will discuss topics such a wild bird species in our area, bird feed options, what bird feeder is the best and where should a bird feeder go and more.

The evening is free but you’ll need to RSVP so we can be sure to have dinner for you.  Call 972-635-7878 today to reserve your spot or RSVP online using the form below.
