|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.
Black Copper Marans: This large, feather legged bird is a good layer of large, dark brown eggs. Marans make
wonderful pets, too - they are hardy, calm and quiet, and bear
confinement well. They are said to be good foragers without being TOO
destructive to your garden. These birds were only hatched from our darkest 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:
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.
via USPS Express Mail. Please choose "Ground" shipping when checking

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
