6-Week-Olds: White Cochin
White Cochin Hen
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.
Cochins are known the world over for being big friendly balls of fluff and feathers. They don't lay very well but are popular because of their 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 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 do not immediately turn your started pullets out with an existing flock. Read why, here.
