Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the tickets! 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.
Wyandottes have a heavy body, which makes them a great dual purpose
choice, and small rose comb, which makes them perfect for cold climates because they are not prone to frostbite. The hens are hardy, energetic and faithful layers. Blue Laced Red is one of our most popular Wyandotte varieties! Due to the genetics of the blue plumage color, the "blue" in the blue lacing will actually be what's known as BBS
, which means blue, black and splash
All Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be approximately 6 weeks old when shipped.
**Please do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an
existing flock. Read why, here.
