Chicks and pullets available for delivery June 7th!

Hello hello!

I'm getting all geared up for a big swap on the 7th where I will be able to get a bunch of chicks and pullets (young hens) from a bunch of local breeders, so place your orders and reserve your girls now!

All birds listed here can be delivered to your door on July 7th (email if you need other arrangements), and will come complete with the Chickeness guarantee - I will treat any that show signs of illness within a month from delivery, and any bird you get from me that decides to start crowing will be rehomed for you as soon as possible.  Totally free.  :)

(Please note: anything less than 8 weeks old will need a brooder setup with a heat lamp, anything less than 16 weeks old will need "starter" or "grower" food depending on age, and if you are introducing new birds to an existing flock you'll need to take the same care as with any other new animals.  Ask me if you have questions!)

Pullets generally start laying around 4-6 months, so any that age or older should be laying for you very soon!

Here's what I either will have available or can get by breed, color, age (as of July 7th), and cost.  Click on the breed name for a link to the MyPetChicken info page on that breed, and check for pictures of the actual birds at the bottom, where available.  Prices may be adjustable for combined orders, especially for the younger ones.  :)

*What the heck does "show quality" mean, you ask?  Similarly to purebred dogs, it means that these birds are excellent examples of their breed, as dictated by that breed's Standard of Perfection.  For more info, check out the American Poultry Association website, or the website of the breed club for whichever breed you are interested in.  If you have no interest in showing or breeding your birds, then it really just means you're guaranteed a very pretty bird.  :)
