Chicken Order

Coming in April:

  • Silver Laced Wyandottes (2)
  • Gold Laced Wyandottes (2)
  • Araucanas (5)
  • Barred Plymouth Rocks (3)
  • Speckled Sussex (5)
  • Buff Orpingtons (3)
  • Black Australorps (3)
  • Delawares (3)
  • Blue Laced Red Wyanodottes (4)
  • ...and a random chick.

Day old baby chicks are shipped overnight from the hatchery. Most of them are pullets (females) but the blue laced red wyandottes and the random chick will be straight run. There's about a 3% chance they will all be females, which would be great. There's also the same chance they'll all be males! Know anyone looking for a rare breed rooster?

We will be offering eggs to friends around September, and will expand to sell to others after the hens get a little practice (eggs from young birds vary in size and quality a bit until they get the hang of it). e-mail for details.
