6-Week-Olds: Rhode Island Red
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.
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.
Rhode Island Reds are held in such high esteem that they're the official Rhode Island state bird. They were once hugely popular in America, though they declined right along with the small farmer. Today they're making a comeback due to small flock owners (like us!). They're the dual purpose, do-everything bird: they lay exceptionally well, they're valued for their meat, they're extremely cold hardy, and hardy in general.
Limited quantities available, so reserve your birds now!
All Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. Price does not include shipping.
**Please do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an
existing flock. Read why, here.
