Happy chickens flocking to Finley Creek

Finley Creek Vineyards is … shall we say, “taking flight!?” Jacquie Bols, owner of Finley Creek Vineyards and Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, is proud as a crowing rooster to announce that she is installing chicken coops (and chickens) this spring at Finley Creek.

Why chickens? Well, first of all, the land around Finley Creek is perfect. With several lovely acres behind the main building, the coops will be nestled in among large free range fenced areas for the chickens to naturally graze and organically pasture with a lot of freedom, and safety from predators.

And of course, since we are all about sustainability and organic foods, our chickens will be a great source of fresh, natural eggs, which Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering and Jacquie’s Café will put to egg-cellent use.

Our fine feathered Finley Creek residents will soon include:

Rhode Island Red

Rhode Island Reds – Not only are they the official Rhode Island state bird, but they are hugely popular among chicken farmers. Often referred to as the “do-everything bird,” Reds lay exceptionally well, are valued for their meat, and are cold-hardy.

 The Ameraucana

Ameraucanas – Are a pure breed from South America. They are probably best known for the light blue eggs they lay, which look as lovely as they taste.

The Golden Layer Wyandote

Golden Layer Wyandotesare a favorite amongst flock owners for their dependable egg laying, easygoing nature, hardiness, and the great variety of beautiful feather patterns.

The Buff Oprington

Buff OrpingtonsThese birds are big and friendly, with beautiful fluffy plumage. They are also very cold-hardy.
