About Open Gate Poultry

Katie Nemeth • founder, crazy chicken lady

My chickens live on our small family farm in Westport, Massachusetts with a variety of others including hereford cattle, german shepherds, sheep, pekin ducks, and peafowl. No day is ever the same here and you learn something new every day. I have many loves which include photography, rare chicken breeds, hatching eggs, growing succulents, raising animals, planting gardens…constantly learning, and making friends a long the way.

My love of chickens has grown over the past five years. I went from having hatchery stock, which I feel everyone does, to learning more about rare breeds, SOP (stands of perfection), genetics and raising happy hens. It’s been five years, and many coops later, we have rare breeds available to share! Check out The Hen Hotel for availability. Thank you for your support, and get in touch if you have any questions.
