6-Week-Olds: Austra White
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.
Austra Whites are the product of crossing the sweet natured Black Australorp with the prolific laying White Leghorn. The results from this mix give you the best of both worlds: lots and lots of light cream colored eggs from a more sizable and docile hen. Generally, the hens are a soft white with some charcoal spots sprinkled throughout their smooth feathers.
Limited quantities available, so reserve your birds now!
All 6 week old Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. We are unable to ship to Minnesota, Hawaii, and US Territories due to importing regulations in those states. These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6 weeks old when shipped.
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
These pullets will be shipped at approximately 6 weeks of age.
