6-Week-Olds: Barred Plymouth Rock
Barred Rock pullet, approx 20 weeks
Product Features:Currently not available
Description:Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the ticket! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements. Another wonderful benefit is that our juveniles are sexed twice, once at hatch and again at 6 weeks, which reduces your chance of ending up with roosters. Our six-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.
Barred Plymouth Rocks, or "Barred Rocks," as they're called, are one of
the most popular dual-purpose chickens on small farms today. Their
heritage is unclear with reports of different crosses, but what is clear
is that they're very friendly, great layers of large brown eggs and
able to withstand cold weather quite nicely.
All Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6 weeks old when shipped.
**Please do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an
existing flock. Read why, here.
