March Of The Free Range Chicks

Just the opposite. They’ve developed a foraging method that’s so precise and methodical it’s a little bit scary.

They start in the same place every day, follow the same path around the Hopyard, and wind up in the same place at night. They really know what they’re doing.

Rainy Days & Nights at the Rogue Hopyard

The last couple of rainy weeks have put all the animals in a foul mood at the Rogue Ales Hopyard. The Free Range Chicks and Royal Palm Turkeys are hiding under the bushes and on the deck of the Hop ‘N’ Bed. It’s no surprise too see egg production falling off. But that’s typical this time of year regardless of the weather.


The Potbellied Pigs, Voo and Doo, spend most of the day hiding in the straw pile – except when it’s time for eating. They didn’t seem to mind the rain at all when we brought over some leftover pumpkins from the Pumpkin Patch Party. Doo was especially thrilled.
