Pullets: Blue Cuckoo Marans
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 6-8 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.
Silver Cuckoo Marans, also known simply as "Cuckoo Marans" are valued for their darker-than-usual brown eggs. Their eggs can range from medium brown, to a medium brown with darker speckles, to a deep chocolate brown - cool! No wonder they're so popular. If you value a colorful egg basket, Marans are a "must!"
All 6-week-old Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail. These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6-8 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.
