6-Week-Olds: Silver Laced Cochin
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 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.
Cochins are known the world over for being big friendly balls of fluff and feathers, and they're a perennial customer favorite! They don't lay very well but are popular because of their calm, sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities. Cochins became famous in the 1800s when this Chinese breed was given as a gift to Queen Victoria of England, who absolutely adored them.
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.
