“I consider myself beyond spoiled to have Silver Fox Farm in such close proximity that I can pick up my chickens. We ordered chickens from another large hatchery and 16 chicks from Maeg and Sarah. The difference was downright shocking. The chicks we received from Silver Fox were healthy, vigorous and incredibly carefully packed. The care they take in literally every single aspect of breeding these chickens; from selectively choosing for health and temperament, the actual care they take of the chickens and hatching the chicks, is evident in the end result. My flock is lovely and healthy and all survived whereas we lost nearly 30% of our other chicks. Their commitment to raising and breeding chickens is beyond compare and their patience with me as a first time chicken mom was incredible. The guides and newsletters were all immensely helpful. You simply cannot get better chickens anywhere else.” - Lindsey Baird, Oak & Ash Farm
"Just wanted to say, "Thank you!" For your wonderful chickens. I bought a variety of chicks from your farm in early May. They are the gentlest birds and so smart. They figured out our fences. I have always had to show our new pullets how to access our alpaca fields and these guys figured it out by themselves! The roosters are so incredibly gentle! Thank you!" - Suzanne
"Maeg was incredibly helpful throughout the purchase process. We purchased six BCM’s in May ‘20 and couldn’t be happier. They are happy and healthy laying the most beautiful, deep brown color eggs imaginable." - John - Holden, Massachusetts
"Hi Maeg, just wanted to drop you a note and let you know it’s looking like a 100% hatch rate on your Black Copper Marans. All but two have hatched and the last two are piping and zipping. Nice egg color!! Thanks again!" - Dana & Marty
"I ordered eggs earlier this year. They all arrived perfectly intact and completely beautiful colors with extras! We had a fabulous hatch rate with the eggs that traveled all the way across the country. Plus Maeg has been wonderful to work with. I would absolutely buy again!" --Mattie A.
"I ordered hatching eggs from Silver Fox Farm and of the two dozen I received all were fertile and developed - I hatched out a dozen of them - and believe it was only my novice incubator skills that didn't hatch all two dozen. That being said, the 12 who I've been growing out are the most vigorous, foraging, friendly chickens I've ever had. I had hoped to hatch out a Black Copper Marans rooster, and I have two, and at least for the foreseeable future I'm keeping both. The most interesting mixes are the back cross BCM and Olive Eggers - the roosters are astonishingly gorgeous. Maeg was incredibly helpful and I used her incubator instructions as well as brooding instructions. Thank you for providing me with gorgeous chickens. They're amazing." - Amanda
"I received a beautiful mix of Black Copper Marans and Olive Egger hatching eggs. All but one hatched—pretty unreal for shipped eggs! Healthy, friendly birds and now I’m impatiently waiting to see what they lay." - Leah D.
"My favorite part of our Silver Fox Farm experience was the prompt, cheerful, knowledgeable and clear communication we had with Maeg. It feels like she is not just running a business, she is making friends and bonding over a love of chickens. We feel great getting our chicks from a farm that doesn't automatically dispatch the cockerels, so there is no cruelty disguised in the origins of our flock. Maeg was willing to accommodate our needs with delivery dates, and she made and followed a safe pickup plan in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will definitely come back to Silver Fox Farm to add to our backyard flock again in the future." - Jessica
"Our chicks are amazing. They are about 4 weeks old now and going through their awkward phase, but they’re still so beautiful. They’ve been the easiest, healthiest chicks we’ve had. Loved the simplicity of ordering them, and the drive out to get them was lovely. We can’t wait to add more Silver Fox chicks to our flock!" - Kylie
"My husband Eric and I purchased four Black Copper Marans from Maeg and Sarah. We had placed our order late and were put on a wait list, so we felt fortunate to be able to pick up the baby chicks! Due to Covid, we met in an outdoor public space and the transfer of chicks was done very safely. They have been wonderful family members for the past month! We're grateful to Maeg and Sarah and highly recommend purchasing from them." - Laura and Eric
"I ordered hatching eggs from Silver Fox Farm and their service was prompt and courteous. I had a hen go broody out of nowhere and was totally not prepared, but Maeg at Silver Fox Farm sent me a dozen hatching eggs within 3 business days and I was good to go! Of course, mama hen was a diva and I couldn't get her to stay broody (it happens!), so I ended up gifting the hatching eggs to a fellow chicken keeper in my area and she was able to hatch them out. Maeg is always so helpful and knowledgeable - I highly recommend Silver Fox Farm!"

"I had ordered Marans chicks from Silver Fox Farm a little before the pandemic shut down the world. I was very nervous about being able to get the birds from MA to NJ with interstate travel being banned. You were more than accommodating in this difficult time and I am very thankful for that. Now, the most important part - the chickens. My husband had driven from NJ to MA to collect the chicks. A 4 hour car ride and they were fine. When my husband arrived home, I was so excited. All the birds appeared to be very healthy and alert. They are about 3 weeks old today and all are still very healthy, growing strong. Overall, it was a wonderful experience thanks to you and your farm. I would absolutely recommend Silver Fox Farm to anyone. Caring, thoughtful and great communication during the transaction. Thank You. I love my birds!"

“Silver Fox Farm provides a warm and friendly experience. Beginning with prompt communication, to delivery. Our beautiful chicks were delivered healthy and the hatching eggs were clean and carefully wrapped. Silver Fox Farm is a pleasure to do business with and can count on our support again in the near future.” -Carlo and Marcelo
"Ordering was easy, Maeg was knowledgeable and there’s lots of good information on the website. Communication on pickup was timely and done safely following Covid-19 distancing guidelines. The chicks are all healthy. This is their 3rd week and they are doing well. Maeg was available for questions I had and got back to me right away. A safe and well organized farm. We are using all organic feed so we’re off to a good start. I highly recommend Silver Fox Farm."
"Our experience with Silver Fox Farm has been incredible! It was our first time purchasing fertile eggs to hatch with a broody mama hen and Maeg was there to answer all our questions. We were communicated with soon after placing the order and the package arrived very quickly. We could tell it was packed with a lot of love and care – all eggs arrived intact. We placed the eggs with our broody hen and sure enough 21 days later hatch day arrived – we have four beautiful and healthy chicks who are now about 4 weeks old. Our mama hen is SO happy and so are we. I’m so grateful we found Silver Fox Farm and hope to order from them in the future." -Rochelle Fisher (Seven Pines, VA)
"Thank you so much for the gorgeous Ameraucana and BCM hatching eggs. I had great success hatching and the chicks are adorable. I am looking forward to the beautiful eggs!" -Kara Diorio, Moonrise Farm
"I purchased eggs from you this spring. Had a fantastic hatch. 8 birds hatched. The girls started laying. Thought I’d share a pic of just one of the eggs I get from them. You guys raise gorgeous birds by the way. The copper color on these birds is top notch." -Beverly
