Three Generations Working Together

Specialty Broiler Breeder Chicken
Region Pembina Valley
Farmers Kelvin & Kayla

Kelvin & Kayla farm with Kelvin’s parents in southern Manitoba. They operate a broiler breeder barn where they raise chickens and roosters, and provide fertilized eggs to other chicken farms across the province. These chickens are essentially the parents of the birds that are raised for meat. The farm provides them a unique opportunity to incorporate their children into the daily work of sorting eggs. ┬áIt’s that lifestyle that many of the farmers we have met credit as the reason they chose to farm. Children, parents and grandparents enjoy close relationships when working side-by-side. We visited Buffalo Creek Chicken during the spring, and shortly after the arrival of a very special addition to the farm – a new puppy!
