The Egg Yolk
Thank you for visiting The Egg Yolk website and welcome! We appreciate your interest in learning more about our products, the urban homesteader community in general, and embarking on a journey toward what we think is a better way to live. For us it started with raising backyard chickens and that’s most likely why you’re here right now. Raising your own chickens right in your own backyard is a fun, wholesome and educational activity, great for individuals and families alike, and good for the planet too. Our product line focuses on Chicken Tractors, essentially mobile chicken coops, and other accessories that keep your birds safe, well-fed and contained while they aerate, fertilize and practice pest control in your backyard. (Did we mention that your chickens will also produce delicious fresh eggs in the process?) Moving your tractor to a new location every few days brings benefits to both birds and turf, allowing your chickens to explore new territory and turn up new bugs and grubs that they love so much. An added bonus is that our products contain no wood or other porous materials so they can be easily and effectively sanitized, keeping your chickens (and you) happy and healthy.Learn more.
Why The Yolk is better
We've made something of a study of a wide variety of chicken coops over the last few years – stick built, homemade and kits - and have used the results to design what we feel is a superior product. Click to Learn more.
