Chicken Coop

The 1880 Tarrant County Agricultural Census recorded that the Nashes kept 50 head of poultry and sold 200 dozen eggs. Breed selection would have been based on characteristics such as being a good meat bird, egg layer and the ability to forage for their food. The chickens here at Nash Farm are Speckled Sussex, a heritage breed, that has been endangered in the past. Nash Farm operates as a conservancy for such animals.
