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.

Buckeyes are a critically endangered breed worth preserving! They are also the only chicken breed of the American Class to have been developed by a woman (in—you guessed it—the buckeye state, Ohio). Their coloring is a rich mahogany brown with dark gray tips on their tail feathers.

Buckeyes are especially docile and can go broody. Their relatively large size and small pea combs make them winter layers and very cold hardy. They are fair layers of brown eggs, year round, and have a reputation for being good mousers.

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.
