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.
The Barnevelder hails from the Barneveld region of Holland where it is so well-known that, according to the Barnevelder Club of North America, the Barnevelder name is synonymous with the word chicken. It is sought after there for its dark "chocolate" brown eggs, and while Barnevelder eggs in this country have lost some of that dark pigment, breeders here are working hard to change that. This beautiful bird with the in-demand, beautiful "double laced" feathers is hardy and quiet and doesn't mind being confined. In short, it makes a wonderful pet.
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.
