WELCOME!

Welcome to Fleece & Feathers Farm! 
We are a small farm located in Floyds Knobs, Indiana.    
As our name suggests,
 we keep alpacas and chickens.  
We've kept a variety of chicken breeds since 2009, and enjoy the fresh eggs they provide, as well as their beauty and their antics.  
Alpacas and llamas are a fairly new venture for us; we brought our first small herd of four alpacas home in March of 2013.  Our llama girls came along in 2016.    

We feel strongly about treating animals with kindness and respect. 
Our chickens have secure coops and runs that are closed nightly, but enjoy the benefits of free ranging our property during the day.  Clean water and nutrious food are always available, and their coops are spot-cleaned daily.  Many of my girls will hop up onto your lap for a snuggle if you sit down outside.  Our egg carton labels read "Happy Hens Lay Better Eggs!"  And I truly believe that.

Our alpacas and llamas enjoy ample fields of orchard and timothy grass, 
free choice minerals, orchard grass hay, a little grain daily, and of course clean water.  Because our herd is small, we "poop patrol" every day.  It is our hope that by keeping their shelter and fields clean, parasites will be few and far in-between.
