6-Week-Olds: Barred Plymouth Rock
Barred Rock pullet, approx 20 weeks
Product Features:Currently not available
Description: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! Our six-week started
pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, 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.
**Please do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an
existing flock. Read why, here.
These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6 weeks old when shipped.
