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 2021 if the season is anything like 2020, so we advise being flexible on breed choice. We will do our best to get as many chicks as needed to satisfy our customers.

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.
