Want exciting breeds without the risk or hassle of hatching at home? Priority Mail shipping is
included in the price of our new Chick Packs -- straight run value packs of 10, 15, or 20 rare
breed and designer chicks. Our specialty breeders incubate any eggs left
over after fulfilling orders for fertile hatching eggs, and hatch out
chicks for those of you who want some rare chicken varieties, but who
can't or don't want to incubate at home.
This particular straight-run Chick
Pack will include birds that lay intense and unusually-colored eggs! Our breeder will personally hand-pick a nice selection of chicks (minimum of 3 distinct breeds, one from each color category) for you, to ensure that each order contains a unique, varied assortment! Potential breeds include:
- Ameri-Flowers – Most of these chicks will arrive crested, and grow into large, friendly birds that will lay green eggs. All of the flash of a Blommehonne, with production-like laying!

Dark Brown/Chocolate Eggs
- Birchen Marans – Always a crowd pleaser, this breed lays the second-darkest egg that we've found, after the Black Copper Marans.

- Black Copper Marans – One of our favorite breeds. Read more about them.
- Southern Blue Bells – These lovely ladies will be blue sex-linked
crosses, who will lay dark brown eggs at a production rate! Males will
hatch with a dot, while females will not.
NOTE: These assortments will be straight run chicks, meaning they
will not be separated into males and females first. (You cannot choose
to receive certain numbers of males or females, because the chicks are
not sexed before they are shipped.) They will be shipped to you "as
hatched." If you need to order specific numbers of males or females,
please choose from among our day old chicks that are not shipped in
Sorry, we're not offering a Marek's vaccine on this assortment.
