FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO YOU SELL YOUR KUNEKUNE PIGS?
We sell AKKPS registered breeding stock, pet animals and meat animals. Occasionally, we have kunekune pork available for purchase.
Kunekunes can change A LOT between birth and weaning. We do not many any decisions on the classification (ie breeding vs pet/meat) of our kunekune piglets until they are 7-8 weeks of age at a minimum. Be wary of selecting breeding animals to purchase that aren't even close to weaning yet!
All of our pet or meat animals are neutered/spayed prior to going to their new home.
Breeding age animals, or bred gilts/sows are very limited.
We work from a waitlist and animals are selected in the order in which deposits are received.
HOW MUCH DO YOUR KUNEKUNES COST?
Registered breeding stock up to breeding age are $850-1000. Proven animals or bred animals are priced differently, typically $1200-1800.
Pet animals are $300-600.
DO YOU DO FARM TOURS?
Not typically. Strictly from a biosecurity standpoint, when trying to minimize the use of antibiotics and chemicals, we need to be extremely careful to minimize health risks to our animals. The easiest way is by limiting traffic. When you come to pick up your order, you will see many of our animals out free-ranging and enjoying the fresh air. Follow us on our social media channels for an inside look at our farm.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE RENT THE CHICKEN PACKAGE?
The Rent The Chicken package is a 5 month rental that includes 2 or 4 hens, a portable coop to move around your yard, food and water dish, reference book and care instructions as well as all the feed required for the rental season. Free delivery within 80km of Moffat ON and continued support (telephone, email, or in person) for the duration of your rental and beyond.
HOW MANY EGGS WILL WE GET FOR OUR RENT THE CHICKEN PACKAGE?
The standard 2-hen package will give you about 1 dozen eggs per week. The deluxe, 4-hen package will give you about 2 dozen eggs per week.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE HENS OR CHICKS AT THE END OF THE RENTAL PERIOD?
We bring them back to the farm where we expand our flock, or expand the flocks of our friends and family. We are fortunate to live in an area surrounded with various pro-backyard chicken municipalities that can offer many hens a spoiled life!
