6-Week-Olds: White Leghorn
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.
Remember Foghorn Leghorn the cartoon? Yep, this bird is one and the same.
(Seasoned pros pronounce it like "leggern.") The White is separate from
the rest because they lay large, white eggs practically every day! Other
varieties aren't nearly so prolific. Whites are said to be nervous, but we've personally found that some White Leghorns are actually quite sweet and very tame! So give one a try and find out for yourself. (In winter, use petroleum jelly on their large comb to prevent frostbite.)
All 6 week old 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.
