Description:

We are excited to offer 14 week and up rare breed started pullets, raised on our own NPIP certified and AI-monitored farm. Started pullets are for people who don't have the time, equipment or ability to care for chicks, or who are just too anxious for some fresh backyard eggs to start with chicks. Another wonderful benefit is you don't have to worry about the possibility of having roosters - they're guaranteed female! Our started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact -- we never trim.

Rhode Island Reds are the do-everything bird: they lay exceptionally well, extremely cold hardy, and hardy in general.  We've combined exhibition quality with hatchery stock to have the best of both worlds, great looks and a wonderful egg layer of large brown eggs!

Limited quantities, so reserve your birds now!
Sorry, we cannot ship only one bird.  Orders are for 2 through 8 pullets.

Socializing with your flock:
We do not recommend immediately turning your started pullets out with an existing flock. You'll need to keep them separated from the other birds so you can feed them starter/grower feed until they start laying.

Shipping:
Shipped via USPS Express Mail. Please choose "Ground" shipping when checking out, but be assured they will ship Express Mail -- the fastest way under the sun to get them to you! Birds are guaranteed to arrive alive and well 48 hours after delivery.  Please call immediately if one of your juvenile birds acts listless upon arrival -- We can offer advice to help!

(Sorry, we cannot ship just one bird.)


Hatch Date: June/July
Ship Dates: The weeks of October 22nd, 29th, Nov 5th

**The vaccine does not prevent Marek's disease, only helps lower the possibility of symptoms (which can lead to death)
