Chick Report 2022

Delivery & Availability Calendar

Our baby chick calendar for 2022 is here!

We will be getting chicks on alternating weeks in March and April. 

PLEASE NOTE: We anticipate THURSDAY sales dates this year, but will be sending out an email on Wednesday evenings to confirm their arrival. With shipping delays being rampant across the country, we may not have them available until Friday. Please sign up for our weekly Renfrow newsletter here if you want to receive the alerts. All chicks are first come, first served and the line often starts forming at 7am before we open at 8am each morning.

Pullets = all female chicks (all pullets for the four orders in March & April);  Straight Runs = unsexed chicks (bantams and other types that we plan to get in the summer)
“Star” breeds = sex linked

Chicken notes:

chick

We order all pullets when available, which grow into hens. “Straight Run” orders mean the chicks were not sexed and they will grow up to be hens and roosters, but we have no way of telling them apart at that young age. If the hatcheries (who are the experts) could sex these breeds accurately, they would do so!

All chicks are available on a first come, first served basis. Chicks will be in short supply in 2022 if the season is anything like 2020 & 2021, so we advise being flexible on breed choice. We will do our best to get as many chicks as needed to satisfy our customers. Additional delivery days may be added in the summer if demand requires it.

Chickens are social creatures. We recommend purchasing no fewer than three chicks to create a family unit. This makes for happy and healthy chicks.

If you’re new to backyard chicks, review our Advice for Raising Chickens and Other Poultry guide for answers to frequently asked questions.

Chickens are farm animals and some will die. Children should be prepared for that possibility. A word to the wise: hold off on naming the chicks right away.

We receive all chicks certified disease-free. Chicks must be treated gently for several weeks. They are all vaccinated for Marek’s Disease.
